    Overrated

    This is really just my opinion. But I think grappling is really overated. Recently I got jumped...when I say jumped I mean I was walking across the shops to buy lunch and a guy randomly jumped on my bag intending to forced me to the ground to stomp me. I threw him of and noticed we were roughly the same size and weight (he was slightly heavier) So because of this instead of going into a big elaborate test of my Judo skills I backed of warily and broght up my guard and I suppose you could say we had a boxing match :P. Everyone who has had a fight on "t3h str33t" knows that you wouldnt wanna wrestle with somone heavier than you and that its alot easier to just pick up somone smaller than you and throw him to the ground WWF style. I dont regret doing my Judo training due to the fact that its always useful no matter who your oponent is. So anyways the point was this guy was heavier. So instead of rushing in and grappling I decided to hang back and throw punches. When he jumped at me intending to grab//choke me or whatever I would catch him throw him of and start punching. The point is grappling and throws are important but you can survive without them.

    It becomes a lot more important when someone reasonably competent takes you down.

    Trust me.

    Yeah i know. Still if somones attacking you in the street I doubt they are competent or trained in anything worth mentioning apart from some style of Karate taught my a Bus Driver with a crayon and a green belt.

    you're missing the point that's been made on this site zillions of times for the past several years. Although grappling ability isn't necessary 100% of the time, if you end up falling to the ground with someone on top of you, you'll be in a world of **** if you don't know it. And if you're up against a good grappler and don't know any grappling, you're almost certainly fucked.

    they may be a football player, or a wrestler or a natural ground and pounder. In these cases, without grappling ability you're probably gonna get pounded.
