    Lol, seems the lad hasn't changed much in the past five years or so.
    For clarity purposes, I was 16 when I wrote those articles, and I knew absolutely nothing about MMA at that time. You can bash me for anything I say now, including the fact that I think MMA fighters are suckers for eye/ear gouging on the street. But don't hold me to blogs I wrote when I was 16 years old.

    But your idiocy now is fair game?

    Because they'll automatically use mma rules, in a self defense encounter?

    Training that ways gives a lot of them a false sense of security.

    How does one eye/ear gouge their way out of a leglock? What happens when the shortcuts aren't enough, and the well runs dry?

    Does that mean boxers are even bigger suckers for it, because punching (but not kicking, kneeing, or tackling) things gives them a false sense of security?

    Are you suggesting that not training, is better than training, because of this?

    There's a good reason why people train/compete in combat sports...they are pressure tested, and proven to work.

    Definitely not effective 100% of the time (like anything), but I've found easy access to MMA fighters' faces, especially when they're coming in for takedowns or when I'm in guard.

    Dan, check out Yuki Nakai's fight with Gerard Gordeau. Gordeau gouged Nakai in the eye so deeply that it permanently blinded him, but still Nakai managed to win the fight.

    Bahahaha, @(2:21) 'no can defend!'

    Good luck getting someone with more than 2 months of grappling experience into that position. Especially trapping the arm with the leg (@1:26) in a realistic situation. Note that even the way purple shirt poorly attempts to pass the guard @1:23 changes @1:26 to accommodate the demonstration.
