If it's lower you'll just end up trying to break his forearm, like Sylvia." At this time someone tackes are photo, and there you have Randy crappling

    drawing conclusions

    i wonder why bullshido sometimes loses credibilty...

    at ANY bjj class you could tape and find moments frozen in time that look like terrible crappling


    ^ guy on bottom just starting an escape??




    this is demonstrating an escape from kesa gatame??



    yeah, got me there this one looks wierd



    just did a hip throw?


    "ok, class, this is where the fulcrum is"

    [/QUOTE]
    this is a skrimping drill?


    sometimes you need context, give me a few moments and i'll find all sorts of silly looking bjj positions (when taken out of context)

    By the way, I get pwned by 15-year-olds. Yeah, I just thought I'd admit that here in the open.
    I got owned by a 13 year old my first week (although he was built more like an 18 year old). Only because instead of slamming him to the ground, I let him pull guard and while doing so he grabbed a perfect collar choke. Too ashamed to tap, I tried to fight my way out of it.
    Next thing I know, I'm looking up at the ceiling seeing a bunch of people laughing with their fingers pointing pointing down at me. Took me a few seconds to remember where I was and how I got there. I still don't slam or throw the kid, but I definitely don't take him lightly anymore.

    This is true.




    I also think the stripes that BJJ guys put on their belts are stupid too though.

    Maybe, but what sort of hip throw would lead to tori holding uke's wrist with both hands? A throw maybe, but not a hip throw, and most likely it would have involved tori holding uke's gi by the lapel or elbow.

    Maybe he is applying a wristlock after the throw, but then the picture should have been named wristlock or something like that. Maybe it's legit, but the way the picture is named (a takedown), it got all fucked up.

    Now, in all fairness, I don't see anything really wrong with that last picture. Maybe he is rehearsing the body position for doing kesa by himself. If the picture is showing a solo-drill, then I don't see anything wrong with it.

    But some of the other pictures are just too wacky, which leads to drawing conclusions. Since there are no pictures of ninjas or claims of chi, I'd say this school needs the benefit of the doubt UNTIL someone got there and watch the class or something and concludes whether is truly crappling or not... or until someone finds an abomination or something on the website that is so shitty and fucked up that leaves no room for doubts.

    .... BTW, the rainbow ghay belt comes pretty close to that, though.

    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
