    UFC fighter teaching t3h anti-grapple?

    Mark Hominick will be doing seminars at the Mixed Martial Arts Expo in Toronto in May.

    He has a few victories by submission, so I assume he knows whats up. The anti-grapple stuff will probably turn out to be sprawls and pummeling.

    Because we all know the real anti-grapple is banned from the UFC...

    Am sure what ever he teaches will be good. It's just weird that he calls it anti-grappling.

    Judging by his win over Yves Edwards I would say his anti-grapple consists of punching people really, really hard in the liver.

    One of my college wrestling coaches told me about an "anti-grapple" against leg pickups. The trick was to train by smacking your hip bones into a padded post, towards slamming the hip into an opponent's collarbone or head when they went for the pickup. He also said that some wrestlers developed heavy calluses over the points of their hip bones. My coach didn't think this was very sportsmanlike, but apparently it had been popular when he was training.

    I imagine "anti-grappling" is great marketing for those folks who just recently watched the first UFC.

    "Man, I don't wanna learn any of that gay grappling ****, but I wanna make sure that they don't make me do any gay grappling when I fight them, so I better learn how to "anti-grapple."

    Only passing on what I was told - my coach could have been kidding and this was over twenty years ago, but IIRC he seemed to be serious.
