    Pulls half guard, then holds on for dear life in punch my face in position for 10 minutes. Yeah. Awesome. Compared to what?

    I know, I know, some people are all about playing the game of jiu jitsu just for the fun of it and all. Well, **** them.

    I'm with Miss Ronda's mommy on this one. If you're using a technique where you don't get your ass beat simply because there's a rule to prevent you from getting your ass beat, then you're doing something wrong.

    Devil if you dont enjoy jiu jitsu, then why are you even posting on this thread?

    You do understand that throwing punches upsets your base right?
    It would have been very hard for him to not get swept all that much sooner if he did start throwing punches. Throwing punches would have done him no good from the bottom of an electric chair.
    While Bravo doesn't do MMA he does participate train and teach Combat JJ where punches are allowed to be thrown on the ground.

    First of all, you realize this is YMAS, right?

    Second, I think jiu jitsu is awesome. Otherwise, I wouldn't spend over $300 a month for my kids to learn it when they have easy access to virtually every martial arts style known to man. I just happen to think jiu jitsu should be done like this, or as close as you can get to it:



    I don't give a **** what color belt somebody is wearing and I don't care whether it's BJJ or Tae Kwon Do - bad fighting technique is bad fighting technique and I'm not going to accept it as okay just because a famous practitioner says it's okay. It's not fucking okay.

    Jumping to half guard is a godawful fighting strategy. It's a wonderful way to get your ass kicked and I'm not going to be impressed if someone does it, then lays there for half of a 20 minute match doing nothing with his face exposed, then finally gets a couple sweeps and walks away with a draw. That's just shitty.

    In fact, pulling guard in a competition is for bitches, period. There, I said it. And I damn well mean it. Is the guard dangerous? Yes. Can you finish people from the guard? Of course. But why would you ever in a fight willingly put yourself in a position where you're going to take punishment from strikes until you find a way to sweep or submit? It's stupid.

    Pulling guard in a competition is conceding that you don't have the skills to take your opponent down......that your opponent is better than you on the feet. Pulling guard is giving up on that portion of the match. It's a bitch move. It bewilders me when people preach the position before submission mantra (which I believe in wholeheartedly) but then willingly give up top position right off the bat by pulling fucking guard. Retarded.

    I love watching jiu jitsu. But when competitors veer away from practical fighting strategies, which is what made BJJ great in the first place, just to get their hand raised - then I hate it and I lose respect for the competitor.

    Bullshit. Ask Randy Couture about throwing punches from half guard. What have you seen utilized more effectively in MMA? Half guard as an offensive position or strikes thrown from inside half guard?

    Oh, the poetic irony of Bravo doing exactly what Royce did so many years ago.

    Is that why Royce felt disrespected? Bravo pulled a Royce circa UFC4 to effectively nullify that legendary GJJ?

    Did matter and antimatter just collide in this match I just watched? Holy ****.

    To defeat a Gracie, you must become him....

    as a judoka i tend to agree with you on this. i know that travis stevens has pulled guard in grappling (and he's no bitch, that's for sure - don't kill me next time we randori, travis) watching him just *slam* people with his judo tachiwaza in BJJ tournaments is just a wonderful thing to see.
