    Kumo JiuJitsu

    Ever since a recent operation, I have been very bored and unable to train. Since time spent training is (for me) inversely proportional to the time spent posting on message boards, I've been killing a lot of time on the SA forums. I then read (and posted to) this thread:

    http://forums.somethingawful.com/sho...readid=2237978

    It's about a new Kimbo video, which is great and entertaining, but of course it invited a flurry of "omg Kimbo is just a big guy I could beet him hurrrrr" posts. This was one:

    At first I think, "well, Kimbo is really huge, but this guy could be really awesome."

    The style incorporates aspects of Karate, Aikido, Drunken Kung Fu, Judo and Jiu Jitsu and integrates all, this with the ground techniques of grappling which are part and parcel of the ancient forms of Jiu Jitsu.
    Aikido is stretching it a bit, but....DRUNKEN KUNG FU. JESUS H CHRIST.

    I ran into a fellow in Madrid and after a few drinks, he began espousing the virtues of collegehumor.com. I immediately turned on him, calling him a coward and a traitor to his countrymen. Upon noticing my Internet elitism, he gave me this queer look and said "****, I knew it. You're a Goon aren't you?"

    Actually Kimbo trains MMA lol.

    And "pulling guard and triangle choking" a 245 powerful unexperienced fighter who wants to take your head off sounds easier than it is.

    That was my point. I have skinny, quick legs, and I have trouble pulling-guard-and-triangling people who are 210-ish, and that's with the gi on. Maybe I just need to do some Drunken forms training.

    I don't really want to write this school off totally without something more to look at than a few goofy pictures on their website, but I think I might just do it anyway.

    EDIT:





    Something is wrong here.

    So, do they bite their opponents, injecting a venom that dissolves their organs, so they can then drink them.

    Because if so, that would be, like, awesome!

    I have seen them at grappling competitions - albeit kids competitions that my oldest son was in. And he won and beat them, but he's a vicious little bugger.

    Is their grappling on par with BJJ? Probably not but regardless of what the guy uses as a mix for his style they spar and grapple in an alive manner and are OK in my books.

    The poster however who said he would pull guard on Kimbo is full of ****. Size and aggression matter.

    However there are also plenty of BJJ white belts who would say the same dumb **** and have never grappled with striking involved.

    I hate it when people say they are doing a Japanese version of jujutsu and spell it like the Brazilian jiujitsu. That right there lets you know from the start they are full of it.

    Does the drunken kung fu influence involve vomiting on your opponent when you're on the ground?

    I do Drunken Judo sometimes. Drunken Forum Posting works real well too.
