    From the gif that Pizdof posted. Scars "Grappling" locks nothing like a compression take down.

    More like two kids playing WWE

    i don't know about compression takedowns, but i was talking to this former police officer who i think was a marine (or army or navy). He mentioned compression fighting in passing but didn't really expund on it. He basically said it is what you want to use to kill not just hurt. He wasn't bragging or anything, just something he mentioend they trained in in some military training.

    i too would be interested in the definition of compressiveness, according to SCARS.

    there is a type of technique in which it is theoretically possible to cause serious internal damage by moving their body in a contrary fashion that will often damage the hips and spine.

    as well this may refer to the maintenance of continous pressure in locking techniques as opposed to stopping short or releasing the opponent prematurely, as is done in training.

    basically you can twist people into odd shapes and mash them flat with strong advancing and dropping movements.(bad yoga)

    i have never done anything like this for real, or had it done to me. only in training. and it is relatively 'new' technique for me. still, from some limited experience, i see that many of them could be very,very damaging.


    or it could be stretching and 'racking' the body in order to strike these 'tense' areas.


    anyhow, i am done guessing.

    peace.

    That's a good idea Kuntaokid, I'll second the motion. Let's pose the question for DRD, as he's claimed to be the regional "expert" on the subject. (Smirks)

    However, let's give him a few days, after all, he's got to access my site for the necessary knowledge before he can even begin to respond. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

    DRD, the "expert"...

    Personally, I think DRD's only an expert at issuing internet "duels"...

    Samuel: A compression take down is very much liek Kuntaokid said. A continous pressure applied to the spine (bad yoga, is a good way to put it), you basically twist pull or push the body in such a way that the neck, back, etc is "compressed".

    It's difficult to explain, but the body will fold in order to eleviate the pressure/pain put upon it. It folds instinctively the person being taken down doesn't have much choice in the matter.

    We don't train them that often because they have to be trained really slowly to prevent injury. Soemone else could probably explain it better but that's my shot at it.

    I don't think this is what the SCARS compression fighting is though. As it is an addition to the usual Grappling take downs not a form of "anti-grappling" (I hate that term).
