    Or to summarize both JFS and Bug:

    I fear that which I do not know.

    Application of knowledge is power.
    Sociopaths are people too.

    Hmm, I probably should have said that my comments were meant to represent the thoughts of people who practice striking styles in a no-contact or semi-contact format.

    I don't have enough experience (yet) with hard-contact striking arts to purport to speak for those who do.

    Besides, the strikers who concern themselves with "anti-grappling" would probably dismiss boxing, Muay Thai, Kyokushin, etc. as "barbaric," "limited," "not true budo," etc. I suspect full-contact kung-fu training of the sort JFS practices would probably draw a more confused reaction, such as "what is that? Well, it looks scary, so it's definitely bad, even if I'm not sure why."

    Again, I'm just trying to express what an unevolved Happy Time Family Fun Center karate practitioner might think.

    Cool?

    JFS fears no thing.

    If JFS discovered something he did not understand, he would study it thoroughly before destroying it.

    (Whoops, wrong thread. )


    I still agreee with him though.

    edit: that's right, 3 e's.

    You noobs attempting to rank on JFS should be aware that although he might not know much about the theory of evolution, he is said to be highly skilled in the practice of survival of the fittest.

    Word of advice. I would be a little more cautious about who I mouthed off to.

    In that case he's probably capable of making his own appeals to fear, thanks.

    See, this I don't buy. Grappling can go a long way to negating functional strength and, once you've closed with someone, you've taken the power from the punches of almost everyone.

    I'm not suggesting that grappling alone prepares someone for a streetfight - that would be silly. But If a person has grappling and some experience at throwing and taking punches then why is it wrong to suggest that the equation will typically be in favor of the grappler? Most strikers aren't going to deliver a knock out blow in the time it takes to close distance. Once distance has been closed and assuming the grappler has some idea of how to handle punches on the ground, it seems like a serious problem for someone who only trains in how to strike.

    Hey Now JFS, The only reason I don't do a striking only style is cause well...
    No decent strikin round here.
    I'm tryin to convince my bud whos a provincial boxer to give me private lessons (of course i'd pay him, but cheap lol)
    But the way I see it, what im trained in would be good for - bouncing - and sport fighting.
    not exactly streetfighting.
    getting bootfucked doesn't sound nice.

    Also, come to the Midwest Throwdown and beat me the **** up plz. I am new here, but not new to getting my ass kicked, and I have no doubt that I would learn a ton.

    So, hi! I'm unpossible. And you are obviously retarded, but that shouldn't stand between us. Let's be friends.
    Oh yeah.
