    In Texas they have their own class (ALL FEMALE) and two others I believe. More are coming out, and still is growing, in fact IMHO female wrestling may save Olympic Wrestling, which the determination will come out soon, this September. Females could now join HS wrestling, go the USA route, do some JUDO and end up all in MMA beating the crap out of each other. So if we could have USA Box, Judo, Wrestling, and then USA MMA!, BOOM we are DONE! Anyone know if someone is working on a USA MMA?

    Vaguero, you are so right about the reasoning flaw. I know a few 105 lb'ers that can throw 250 lb men. It aint pretty, but gives them a chance to run away...which is my preferred strategy to larger people or smaller people with lots of skill and conditioning.

    For self defense, I'll take judo over wrestling. Both are good and this part of the country is rife with wrestling. I've done both.

    Not mentioned in this thread is that, with a little variation, many judo techniques can be made more dangerous that what's allowed in competition or safe for randori in the dojo. Some techniques have been removed from the judo syllabus over the years due to injury. At least for shiai.

    We have a kids class, 'judo for wrestlers'. Lots of young talent learning judo techniques to up their game. They're taking the time for a reason.

    Still crying about the rule changes in judo for attacking the legs.

    This is certainly true of wrestling as well, from standing or the ground.

    I agree, in fact the lack of clothing, ie no gi approach in matches for wrestling is an added advantage at times. I can think of a few moves that hurt real bad when done incorrectly or illegally in collegiate wrestling, which turn into submissions, or life ending maneuvers.

    There is one move that from behind is very painful and should be banned from MMA. I am not sure what the move is called but top man is north/south - with basically head and arm with hooks in. Deadly and can snap a spine, wrestling...or Judo. Not sure the name.

(Basically your ippon. Except ours comes from the ground, yours from the clinch/stand-up)

    This is completely wrong. I was a HORRIBLE wrestler. I scored a single point in my 2 year wrestling career, and MANY MANY MANY times I managed to avoid getting pinned, or even fallign victim to the 16 point technical pin, while having absolutely no control over anything except for the love of god don't stay on my back.

    And I don't know where you get a 3 minute ground game from. Almost every wrestling match of watched or been involved in spends at least 50% of the time standing. Usually more.

    If you're involved in grappling, you're already in a better position to defend yourself than if you're studying karate or another poor striking art...

    Obviously they're both legit and I think it's more the individual than the art, and when talking about the art it's theyway you train....but there's a few things I think I'll bring up because I've been in a slightly similar situation.

    I only wrestled for one year in high school (in Missouri). I've been dabbling in MMA (in N. Ireland) far much longer than the year I wrested but from what I've seen unless people grapple or are involved with other martial arts in Ireland & the UK they don't have much experience confronting wrestlers (generally as there are wrestling clubs, but dwarfed by a long shot by football, e.t.c) I for one would never think of pinning someone using wrestling for self defence.

    Now I have a lot of respect for Judo and am blaming this on 2 factors, as I can't help but gaff it off now in the back of my mind after this. There's a fella in town known for being kind of a wanker with drink in him, and he's a Judo black belt. I had a few people back to my house one night, and when I mentioned I did a bit of MMA he kept insisting on 'going at it' a bit. To humour him I did and the guy put himself in a standing guillotine diving at me with his head down. You know how hurt egos kill a party, so when I tried laughing it off to go back to drinking he made a few people uncomfortable insisting on 'going at it' again, so when we did he threw a couple elbows at me, so I double legged him and dumped him on his side. He shut up after that holding his arms which swelled up, and next I saw him a couple weeks later at a Halloween party at the bar he was in a cast with a broken arm. I was just baffled how a Judo black belt couldn't breakfall when put in an unexpected situation....so I'm hoping it was because he trained at a **** gym.....

    Another is I've rolled with another Judo black belt in the gym. Now I only know standard chokes&locks that my BJJ mates show me on the side, but I was able to primarily rely on wrestling to get me in positions where I was able to use them. To be fair I'm 6'1 and about 210 l.b.s., and that guys was stocky but his head came to my shoulders. In a self defence situation I'm going to say it depends at how good they are at what they do, and height and weight do come into factor.

    I'd say that sums it up pretty well and even as a total noob I would say it's the same for any MA.

    Anecdotal evidence is anecdotal. "Black belt" is a highly variable standard.
