    So much so that you're willing to pay money to hang out with them during class time?

    Hang out with them on the weekends and train somewhere else.

    Or make some new friends. There are nice people at other gyms, too.

    There's nice people a lot of places. If you like hanging out with them, get their damn phone numbers and invite them over for a BBQ on Saturday. Don't stick with something that isn't getting you what you intended from it.

    There may be some cool people there, but trust me, you'll enjoy hanging out more with people who's fighting ability you actually respect.

    That's it.

    I seriously need to find which school in Xi'an has a Judo club. I agree with everything that's being said. Unfortunately that means here in China I seem to be screwed. In LA, I never formaly trained in a ground fighting style but there was always people around me who did. Here in Xi'an....no such luck so far. All this discussion is making me nervous. I'm a mediocre groundfighter at best but there's not a person I've met in Xi'an so far outside of my teacher I couldn't choke out. Mostly with a guillitine but occasionally from a "front naked choke" ?

    Can you call it that? I mean, I've discovered you can apply a RNC from the front and it works pretty damn well. Sometimes even better because it's easier to put your ulna across the windpipe.

    So what't the official term for that anyways?

    I'd suggest finding a few practice partners and getting some books/videos and going it on your own until you can find a good instructor for grappling. Maybe your instructor would be supportive.

    As far as the choke goes, if it's the one attached, it's a front choke.

    The SCARS anti-grapple defense as I understand it is as unbeatable as it is easy.

    Step 1. Talk tough (over the internet)

    Step 2. Avoid the grappler by staying in a secret hideout.

    I'm not sure how old you are so I thought I'd mention this .. if you are still in high school or college take advantage of the wrestling programs at your school. If you have a decent coach at all you'll learn a lot. You will still need to learn submissions and locks and everything later - but you'll learn to shoot, sprawl, pummel, get wrist control, pin (mount) people, escape, stay standing under pressure, etc etc. Joining the wrestling team in high school is free. FREE. No money. Wrestlers are among the best grapplers in MMA. Their stats are still right up there with BJJ. Of course they cross-train like everyone else in MMA. If you are still in high school or college, my advice is to take advantage of the free training.

    Also, you may want to check out a Muay Thai school or a BJJ school like others have said. Also, read and watch videos and make friends with other martial artists. Try new things. See what's out there.
