Nothing to lose by adding my 2 cents before this winds up in the troll corner.

You want to be one of the cool people, do you not?
Anyways, to the point of the topic--argumentum ad rem [Stop it.--Ed.]--grappling is a tool. It is a useful tool. If one does not wish to learn it, use it, one may or may not suffer for it. Same with striking arts. I can often get by with a straight screw-driver when I need a Philip's head, but I find the Philip's head screw-driver works much better and does not ruin the screw.
I fully endorse the "you really do not want to go to ground" in the bar and all of that. I, personally, would rather like to avoid the ground for the obvious reasons. However, we do not get to choose these situations usually, and if on the ground I would rather have a clue than try to "discover" grappling on my own.

I'm bored so I'll add my 2p as well:
When two people have equal skill (and conditioning etc.), the bigger and stronger guy has the advantage.
If the smaller guy has good skills, and the bigger guy doesn't have any - be it striking or grappling - then the smaller guy has the advantage.
Every single time a newb big guy comes into class, if he hasn't done any wrestling, the smaller and more experienced members can unsurprisingly still take them down.
Lol at the idea of size being an advantage in itself; as people get older, they tend to put on more fat. Should you be scared because you aren't as heavy as fat old ladies?

If you are a troll then 1/10 for lack of originality.

So THIS GUY didn't grapple with you (in this likely fictional event) so grappling is over-rated?
If he'd ran up and tackled you would you be on here talking about how punching is over-rated because you went straight to the ground?
And seriously, www.paxbaculum.com if you want to talk about judo you learned from a book and practiced on your brother.
Actually, they'd laugh at you too.

I knew before I even clicked on this thread that it would be about how grappling sucks. Your opposition to grappling means we never have to deal with your dumb ass in class. The fact that you take time out of your day to troll grappling kind of flatters me, though."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal
