Yeah, and honestly, if he is as good as a teacher should be, he should know better! Ground and pound after the ko is really stupid!

Combatives training log.
Gezere: paraphrase from Bas Rutten, Never escalate the level of violence in fight you are losing. :D

I really don't see how they can draw a parallel from a guy beating someone to death in a barfight and an organized and regulated event. Exactly what level would that town propose going to?? Maybe they will arrest people on suspicion of knowing martial arts. Yet I bet it's perfectly legal to buy a knife there.
