    Mother Dear vs. Tank Abbott. Heheh.

    **The most miraculous power that can verifiably be attributed to "chi" is its ability to be all things to virtually all people, depending on what version of the superstition they are attempting to defend at any given moment.**
    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

    It doesn't matter if he existed or not. That's the coolest goddamn name ever.

    I have a book called Martial Arts Around the World that talks about Jailhouse Rock. A guy named Dennis Newsome is written about as one of the leading authorities of the system. A lot of the techniques shown don't look too bad.

    For those of us back in the 80's that were break dancers, Up Rock was based supposedly on 52 blocks.
