And yes, we had rules, the instructor wanted his guys to get some standup experience, but he didn't want them getting hurt terribly in the process. We agreed to no knees or elbows on the shoot and if it gets to the ground we play their game. The instructor was very cool, kind, and I got some great experience from he and his students.
To answer your question, I didn't have strategy, they weren't trying to hurt me. In a real situation, I'd let the environment and target availability dictate my strategy.
And yes, I was exhausted and asked the guy I'm rolling with if he would allow me to catch my breath before he hurt me, so I suppose that's a tap, like that's a bad thing. BTW, I can say that I don't know that many Kenpo guys willing to get on the mat and roll, much less not get tapped with a submission in less than a few seconds. I like to grapple, it's great cardio-vascular exercise and builds an incredible amout of isometric resistance, but I'm not there to train in grappling, I'm there to train my own ability to remove the ground game from them by learning their methodology of attack.
Try putting your money where you mouth is, you still haven't got any vids of you on the internet do you? In fact, post it here, I'm sure everyone would like to see it now they've had a chance to see your comments about me.

Seriously, dude. Look at it the flip way: what do you say about some guy who never taps?Best Vietnam War music video I've ever seen put together by a vet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDY8raKsdfg

Clyde seems like a class act. I'm a huge believer in grappling, but posting a video clip for the sole purpose of demeaning someone accomplishes nothing.
Props to Clyde for being willing to step outside of his dojo & learn something from a different art.

Hmmm....I guess Clyde has enemies in the Kenpo world...
Not a surprise.
If that's the worst thing that happened in a two hour session, then whoopee.
Christ, if you guys saw my 'worst moments' from ANY class, I'd be embarrassed as hell.
And the sarcastic captioning made the point that the 'contributor' of this little film has his very own shiny axe to grind...

You know what? I've done a light match with Clyde and he's quite accomplished kenpoist in my opinion. Clyde pulled his techniques on potential harsh techniques (snap to the inside knee, snap to the groin) and he was humble enough to say it'd be different if there were throws and groundfighting. I had fun. What ever everybody in the Kenpo world has against Clyde I can't figure it. He's blunt and to the point (redundant?) but besides that I can't see why the rest of the fobs can't get over their own egos.

Clyde's an AK guy who actually trains hard, spars, and isn't afraid to mix it up with other people in other styles. People like him seem to be a minority disliked by the rest of the community as they're walking reminders of their defficiencies. At least that's my take on it.You say what about my rice?

You guys know how it is if you been associated with a Mcdojo art. If you go against the grain the "higher ups" insult, demean, and assault your integrity.
This is probably retaliation for his wanting to fix problems in AK.
