    Reasonable Answer:

    In my opinion, any "alive" grappling training will prepare you for controlling the movement (and pain level) of a human that is actively resisting you. Therefore, any grappling training is good to have in a ruckus.

    Which one works better depends on the individuals involved, and their respective leves of experience, aggression, strength, speed, etc.

    My advice? Go with your gut, pick the one you like, and train. The more you play "Which is the best?" the more you avoid actually training. I've been there. Trust me, just jump into one and go with it.

    Maladjusted-Dickbag-on-Teh-Internetz Answer:

    Listen, dude. Grappling makes you look like some gay animal, and any horizontal surface translates directly into PURE DEATH in a streetfight. When some "Homie" starts raggin on your authentic Matrix trenchcoat and warrior ponytail, do you really want to be rolling around like a homo on the Aids-Lava while all his "gangsta" friends kick you in the head? Psh, I think not.

    Neither. Grappling doesn't work in a fight.











    Maybe it does.

    I think BJJ would probably be better as a overall self defense art. The reasons why is that a wrestler, no matter how good he is can still get knocked down or be taken by surprise and end up on his back or side. In this situation his skills are not as applicable and his trained reaction (flattening out or giving his back up to get base) could get him in trouble.

    BJJ training, on the other hand will give you more options if the worst case scenario happens and you end up on the ground against your will. I do think that having a good sprawl. cross face, understanding how to use an underhook and whizzer, and defensive wrestling hips are really essential skills that should be developed for any martial artist.

    well, I agree with the second half of that statement.

    Of course, there are exceptions to the rule, my good man.
