    "I wouldn't want to grapple/wrestle with a bigger opponent, I'd rather strike."

    In the striking range, there is a higher percentage of chance factors that can result in the inferior striker getting in a shot that KO's the other person. This is especially true if you are fighting a big person. A bigger person with little or no training can still throw powerful punches. A good grappler can negate this by taking the bigger person to the ground and minimizing the distance the bigger opponent has to build momentum in striking. Yes, size still matters on the ground, but not as much as standing up. It's more likely that your technical skills on the ground will protect you against a larger opponent than standing up.

    Well, my last post supposes that the bigger person isn't a grappler, or good at it.

    Why thank you Rear Admiral Obvious of her Royal Majesty's NO **** squadron. Perhaps next post you turn us on to the startling position that the guard looks kinda like anal sex.

    Everyone else, good job so far, let's keep it going. I added a few myself.

    Yeah but its kinda grammaticly correct to say "Shoot his legs!" rather than "shot his legs!"

    the move is called a shot, but you know... different tenses create differences in the word due to the shittiness of english.

    here's some questions I've thought of, maybe you experienced guys will take the time to answer them.

    Q: "My friends won't respect me if I start humping another guy before I beat him down. Why should I take grappling?"

    Q: How do you expect to take me to the ground? I'm bigger than you.

    Learn the grappling, then "hump" your friends into submission and see how much they respect you then.

    Q: How do you expect to take me to the ground? I'm bigger than you.
    Every structure has a base, if you manipulate that base, you can bring the structure down. Good grapplers know how to attack the base of the opponent, thus bringing them down, no matter what their size is.

    multiple opponents?

    the only area of contention is multiple opponents...

    this only arises as few people claim to have done it.

    in the hawaiian clip if the situation had been reversed and the skinny guy was the BJJ dude and had taken down the hawaiian aandd the hawaiians mate was standing there what would have happened?

    fighting has a lot to do with morale and perception of those involved and dispite being totaly unversed in grappling AND being someone who claims to actually have "won" against multiple opponents more than once (no i havn't got any fffing video evidence) I do not rule out ground fighting as a option in such a scenario thou I would like to hear from people who have done it.

    i find it hard to believe people have not been in fights with multiple opponents as many fights are. even if the others didn't come to the aid of their mate being mounted and GnP this anecdotal evidence would be intersting in it self
