    Zendetta is correct. Trying to body check someone who knows how to grapple would just be a way of succumbing to their takedown.

    Unless you're a giant and they're a midget, but even so you're better off just punching them in the head or something.

    I've seen people use it to decent effect for creating some space when the two fighters are pressed up against eachother. I can't see it as being something that could actually do much (if any) damage, however.

    I dunno. Pulling guard on somebody just seems like a whole 'nother affair than pulling guard on somebody who is body checking you.

    I could see body checks working in any brawl involving more than 6 people.:wcacjack

    Yes, and it turns out it's ME. Thus, the glowing eyes.

    I *used* to use the bodycheck a lot for moving dickheads, closing range fast and pinning opponents to walls and things so they can't pull knives etc., but I ceased this tactic about 6 years ago when a local policeman told me a security guard from a local hardware store employed the same tactic on a thief and got stuck with a syringe the guy had in his pocket when he pinned him to a chainlink fence.
    Screw that.

    I like body checks a lot,
    mostly during sword sparring.
    People can get winded, unbalanced, jarred.
    I'm always holding onto some part of them at the time too,
    and if you watch some MMA bouts the grapplers are using a body check as the takedown provided a leg is picked too.
    Type of single leg takedown, but with a strong body check they get a much better position when they go to ground.

    Hmm, did that make sense??

    I'm a follower of common sense. And common sense sends glaring, glaring "Don't fucking do that's" at the prospect of body checking a man with a sword. I don't know much about sword fighting other than that they are really sharp, and I really don't want to be close to them.

    The only time I think body checking a person with a sword would even be considered is if you're on the inside. Between you and me, I really would rather not be close to anyone holding a sword.

    Ask Asia. I saw him pull it off from a taped throwdown session.
