    In that light, yes. But what we do at Throwdowns, and what happened here are two completely different things. A Throwdown's just a meetup for Bullshido members to discuss martial arts, exchange ideas, and spar. There's no competition involved.

    Ah what the hell, I know its not the end of the world, but it is a relevant issue.
    Have a good weekend.
    Well, it was a great first post. I don't think anyone doesn't think this isn't interesting.
    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
