Quick one for the macp people. Wached human weapon where they do a rolling knee bar from a rear grab. Do you guys actually train that one? And if so why?
For me if you are going to promite the deadly over the sport, squirrel gripping somone who is grabbing you from behind just seems the easier option.
It almost seems that they travel too far into the technical world of grappling to be used by the smash kill crowd (simplicity). But not far enough to make anybody really good.
edit. sorry I really hate the way I have written this. Words are just not coming out today

I think that was the MCMAP (Marine Corps Martial Arts Program) episode. I have trained that move and it is a black belt move. Your right it isn't an ideal move in this position, I've been out of the Marine Corps for about 3 years now and I know they have changed many things within the program and I hope this is one of the moves that they have dropped.

If I'm ever at the bookstore and feel in the mood for some comedy I'll know what book to look at.

I am sure a well trained grappler/judoka/mma-ist could take the average marine sans weapons, but I know who I want defending my freedom with appropriate technology!!
I think talking about the SAS is going a bit off topic.

Good videos! I def think the first video's technique is a great move and alternative to the rolling knee bar. However, I wouldn't use the second video's technique(for MCMAP) because it still goes to the ground just like the rolling knee bar.

FYI There is a reason the old Gracie Guard Pass (aka Gracie Gift) is taught at Lvl 1. It basically contains a lot of elements you need for a good guard pass. You may not use the pass exactly like that but you will you many elements in it depending on whats going on.
Again Lvl 1 is basic. The Clinch drill is designed to get people used to being in a fight. Keep in mind the vast majority of the soldiers out there haven't been in a fight period. Many never been hit, ever. Its there to instill confidence that they can take a hit.
