My dream finally came true and I found a steady training partner. That's the good news. He said he'd be willing to spar with me during [s]Christmas[/s] the winter holidays break. That's really good news, since I've been going crazy from my desire to spar with someone lately. He's a wrestler who's in fantastic shape, so I've got the benefit of a competent partner, too. Now here's the bad news: I don't know any grappling.
Now no one start yelling at me here for my fighting ignorance. I really really really wanted to join my school's wrestling team like him, but there's just no way I'd be able to get the time off work. He's only been in wrestling a couple months, but he's still damn good. I spent a few days trying it out, though, so all I know is the double-leg takedown, the cradle (which I forgot immediately after practice), and the sprawl. Needless to say, I'm pretty ill-equipped. What do you reccomend to a karate man like myself who uses extremely close-ranged technique and might be able to beat him in a standup fight? Anyone have any general-principle advice on what to do once he gets me down?
Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:
1) I am STRAIGHT! I am STRAIGHT! Get it through your thick skulls, numbskulls!
2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.
3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

Have your new partner show you. Thatís much better than asking strangers on a bulletin board. No offence meant.

He's a new wrestler? Well most newbies shoot with their head down. Guillotine choke time. Other than that handy dandy tip, EVERYTHING else needs to be shown. I agree with FukFu ask him to show you stuff.
Such as thou art, sometime was I.

Learn everything you can and be ready to throw out any karate when you find it just ain't doin' it fo' ya.

Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

Yeah, he's been showing me a lot of stuff he knows, although I've never had a chance to actually practice it yet, so I wouldn't rely on it. I just figured it'd be a good idea to ask you guys since you have a lot more experience than him. Plus, I would prefer to kick his ass, THEN share the knowledge.

Its kinda funny how you were so excited that a very young man, and also in incredible shape would be showing you "grappling" moves in your backyard.
Sounds kinda homo to me.
I'll make one when I can find one I like.

Uh, this from a 17 year old who has a ridiculously lame picture for his avatar. It's also been my experience that those that call others homo the most are the ones, who in fact, are homosexual by nature. Being gay is OK, by the way.

No, no, it's okay, because when I said "spar with", I meant "force at gunpoint to perform sexual acts on". I probably should've fixed that.

Are there any schools nearby? Sign up and learn.
Or... ask your sensie if you are still enrolled in Karate.
