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

Bah, if the grappler takes a shot in, just turn that highkick into an axe kick and send him to the morgue.

Cro Cop usually beat the **** out of the so called grapplers he faces, and often with a high kick, yet he's far from being the best grappler out there. Probably because it's Cro Cop, but I'm sure any decent kickboxer/thai boxer (not the kind of "fat" kickboxers like Mark Hunt) who trained a bit in wrestling and BJJ wouldn't have a hard time to pull out a high kick in a MMA match. If you've got a good speed and don't telegraph it, it's pretty hard to block a high kick with MMA gloves and the MMA-adapted guard, I think.

I think you'd have to have some seriously uncommited (read: weakass) kicks to pull that off.

You don't seriously think I am advocating an axe kick as the anti-grapple, do you?
