this TKD nutrider practically begged me to watch all 4 of the best of the best movies.
the first one was the best, however, the bar fight scene isn't any more credible than any other martial arts bar fight scene in any movie.
I here "brazil brawl" has a good BJJ bar fight scene with lot of flying armbars and such...
Another delusional LARPer...

Even if that's true, fighting multiple opponents isn't a fucking linear scale of difficulty. Fighting two guys may be twice as hard as one, but when you have three free-thinking able-bodied assholes ready to beat your face in, that's a hell of a lot more difficult... Let alone eight?!

You've been here a long time. Thats awesome. You also just jumped onto this month's troll bandwagon. Congrats.
P.S. I blame you Omega. You showed the trolls a new subject they could cling to. (Not really calling the OP a troll its just a general statement)
I think all he is saying is:

3) Every range of combat is important; there is nothing wrong with emphasizing one over another, as long as you learn enough of the others and don't leave a gaping hole in your skill set.
4) Style is only important in how well it is expressed by the fighter.
I think that captures the worst of it. I suspect it was inspired by all the BJJ nutriding that goes on around here -- which, I must admit, is pretty damn rampant (and I say that as a current BJJ student).
I would add that alot of the nutriding is generally the product of the younger generation (let's say under 30) who are often exuberant but short-sighted, in the greater scheme of things.
So you teach crappling?

My pet peeve:
There are NOT 4 ranges of fighting. Trapping is NOT a range. Stop living a lie and learn the definition of grappling.

Progressive thinking does not dwell on art VS art, rather it swinishly grasps knowledge, experience and rectifying weakness.
If you don't know BJJ or an art that incorporates it, then you have weakness.
I don't want to get into a flame war, but I want you to ask yourself one question.
In your opinion, was Royce Gracie such a gifted physical specimen that if his style were something other than BJJ, for instance TKD, do you think that he still would have won the first UFCs?
Bottom line here, it was the style known as BJJ that won the early UFCs...
that was the whole point of them putting in Royce, to prove the STYLE was better.
They purposely used one of the smaller, less intimidating brothers to promote their STYLE. Rickson at the time could have EASILY dominated any of the fighters in the UFC, but they didn't want a big muscular looking guy in there, that defeated the purpose of them trying to show that it was the style not the person.
Look... to be effective in the cage/ring today, it is imperative you know BJJ.... you cannot say that about ANY OTHER martial art.
Yes it is good to know boxing
Yes it is good to know MT
Yes it is good to know wrestling
Yes it is good to know Judo
Yes it is good to know (fill in the blank)
But it is a MUST to know BJJ nowadays. The style (there is that word again) was so dominant that it is one of the building blocks of any proffesional fighter that is worth a damn today.
Chuck Liddell FYI is very good at BJJ (purple I believe)... he is good enough at it to know that if he can keep the fight on his feet, he will do everything in his power to avoid a grappling match, because there are better and he knows it.
Of course the person is the number one factor..... afterall if someone isn't a "fighter" then they are going to get their ass handed to them regardless. But don't underestimate the style... it is much more a factor than YOU apparently realize.
BJJ no longer has the "Secret weapon" power it once had... but that should be a testament to the HUGE success of that style. It is so effective that it has ingrained itself into almost every fighters training regiment.
can you say that about TKD? or WC or KC or whatever.....? didn't think so.
give the STYLE its props.
No dagorilla he is whining because no one respects most kma arts.
And there is no reason they should.
I'd be willing to bet that most of those he considers "nutriders" have extensive experience with the crap that is KMA.
As for the "nutriding", there are only a few decent grappling styles (HKD isn't one of them). BJJ happens to be one that has been quite important in mma. That's not youthful exuberance it is fact.
