    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I'm not trying to sound arrogant, merely curious about "locking" ma's.

    Hello. :)

    Yeah, I'll start by saying that the only experience I have with things like aikido, jiu-jitsu and nin-jitsu are from seminars.

    But I was wondering how these martial arts deal with the situation of someone doing something like a boxing stance, and throwing quick jabs etc.

    I'm merely curious is all, I'm not looking to slag anyone off.

    Thanks. :)

    On the ground, yes.

    But I know **** all about the standing situation. :)

    Oh I see, I suppose so!

    So do arts like aikido deal with takedowns and stuff?

    As I say, I'm not trolling or anything, I actually know NOTHING about these arts...

    As for takedowns, I've never really thought about it as I do wing chun primarily so I close down, I use the BJJ I've been taught when on the ground as I'm better at WC.

    I've not covered takedowns in much detail, as I've been starting in a kneeling position mainly in BJJ.

    On the other hand, I have covered a takedown if someone tries to stand up in guard...

    Yeah, short answer: I didn't really consider them here for some reason. :)

    I was just stupid and didn't really think about the question in much detail...

    So answer: Yes, my school does teach them, not to say I am greatly proficient at them. The reason for this is that I'm learning BJJ as a secondary thing to WC. Maybe it's better as a primary thing, I can see that happening, as for the now though I'm better at WC. I also consider a takedown as a risky thing if you are not 100% good at it, which I am not.

    So I'll rephrase, do these MA's deal with takedowns?

    I'd also be interested if these MA's do have any form of entry techniques.

    Sorry if I came across as an idiot, the reason for this is that I know jack about these MA's; I wouldn't be asking if I ddn't.

    Thanks. :)

    Sidestep, punch to the body then grapple.

    Yes, but usually with inadequate training methodology.

    Yes

    Thanks for the replies, that pretty much covers it.

    As for my BJJ experience, you can probably tell, I only have about 8 months experience. I'm not going to claim to know everythnig about it, but the reason it is in my description is because I am actively learning it, and to be honest, even 8 months of BJJ is good enough to deal with alot of people on the ground.

    Of course, it isn't enough to deal with very good judo people / more experienced BJJers, but I'm not going to claim that. :)

    For a full syllabus of "locking" techniques as well as "popping," I refer you to Mestres Turbo and Ozone and their Electric Boogaloo style.
