Ahhh, but "obscenity", unlike "porn", can be live, happening-right-in-front-of-you. Although, I guess if you were AT the porn shoot... but wouldn't that still be "obscenity" since porn requires a medium by definition?

All those could be "fights", except maybe point sparring. Assumming the others are competition, the only one I can see being an effective training tool is free sparring. You train to fight, you do not fight to train.

What about shouting 'WHO'S YOUR DADDY!!!!' ??? :eusa_thin

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
