    I might let some tension out if I feel a tap on the street to maybe open up some dialogue , but at this point my ability to re-apply said hold will not be compromised if anything I will be in a position to get it even deeper at that point.

    The fact you don't inherently understand this tell me your full of **** and have NEVER trained BJJ or any other grappling art that has a submission system built into it.
    Be careful not to give a standing 8 in the street, either - I've seen that too.

    The only think you have witnessed are Youtube comments and this is why everything you type here are your typical tropes. You don't know dick about grappling, you sure the hell don't know dick about BJJ, and you have no fucking clue how to handle yourself in a fight.

    Let me break something down for you.

    The martial arts that compete expose its students to something that the martial arts that don't compete. They expose the student to a situation where there actual fight or flight mechanism kicks in. Their body actually goes through the same chemical state that it would in an altercation. They get to deal with the nerves the adrenaline dump and all that goodness.

    So at the very least they know how they will react under that sort of pressure.

    It's funny that he keeps describing and naming techniques, but systema guys say they don't use them.

    Just to go a bit further with what gezere is saying here, and I feel this is an important point, how do you know that the person attacking you in t3h str33t is not a martial artist? Or at least has some proficiency in martial arts from previous training?

    Don't assume that the only people who start fights are 'lowly' street thugs, there are plenty of martial art schools with plenty of students and at least a small portion of those students are going to get drunk, think they are t3h d34dly and start some **** at some point. Another small portion are the very 'lowly' street thugs you think you're aiming your training at, who have seen this **** on the UFC and want to apply it to a rival's face.

    The other consideration is that, sure, a lot of 'gangstas' are upper working class or middle class kids who think they're badass because they wear saggy pants and call each other "blood". A goodly number, though, are hardened criminals who learned to fight by actually having lots of fights. Fights where there are no holds barred and by losing they could be seriously injured or even killed. They also tend to tip the odds in their favour by keeping buddies around most of the time, so it's unlikely you'll encounter just one of them.

    With that kind of training, if you come up against someone, or several someones, who can REALLY handle themselves in a fight you'll be woefully under prepared. So viewing them as beneath you isn't just patronising, it's downright dangerous.

    Oh shutup Katje. You haven't trained at a "REAL"school of martial arts. To be the best you MUST beat the worst. The lowest common denominator always creates the best street savy fighter.

    Geeeeeeeeeeez!

    I personally love this concept that you have a choice on the matter if the fight is going to go to the ground or not.
    As if the football style tackle isn't the worlds most often deployed move in a street fight.

    Its sort of unfair, though, when you give someone crap for calling a takedown attempt a tackle, then tell them that tackles are the most common fighting technique.

    I speak fluent Russian.

    In the video the live ammo is used by GRU Spetznaz as training to remain calm when faced with death. To psychologically prepare the soldier for performing some technique under said threat. The instructor is junior colonel Alexander Lavrov. Basically most people freeze up when a gun is in their nose, and training with live ammo allegedly eliminates that fear.

    The end of the video is supposedly 'forbidden footage' of 'elite level combatants' who have 'nothing to prove to anyone because they've already proved it in combat'. They are demonstrating 'no contact fighting'.

    verbatim the end of the video:
    "The American Navy Seal did not believe in the reality of the occurring demonstration. So simply he was shown the effectiveness of the theory of our Spetznaz. (Alleged navy seal says OW! and falls over without anyone touching him). "What did he do to me?" he asks. Ensuing laughter. (The idea here is that he was brought down by overwhelming psychic force..)

    ---


    In other words, in my opinion, there are no real Russians who know their history who believe that this nonsense can work.

    (Sorry if someone already answered this, I glanced through the thread and didn't see anything).
