    Dude I was fighting doesn't have much standup experience, his background is Eskrima and Aikido, so he has a tendency to leave his jabs hanging out in front of him.

    I managed to grab his arm, pull him forward and step in with the classic clothesline irimi nage.

    Nice, the clothesline variation is a little more realistic than it's "grab my wrist and fly through the air" brethren.

    I'm not a big fan of the "wrist grab" irimis. We're expected to get really good at them when we get to shodan at my JJJ school. Needless to say, that's why I train Judo/BJJ now.

    Yeah I remember them well from my Aikido days, entertaining, but impractical.

    I remember thinking that pressure points were the end-all, be-all of martial arts.

    I remember when I was in Middle school, a kid who rode my bus used to brag that he knew pressure points. He thought that meant he could kill everybody, even though he was short, fat, and stupid.

    I never did get to see him try it out. No one took him seriously even then.

    I knew a guy who believed he knew a pressure point combination that would overload your nerves and stop your heart. To his credit him he truly did believe that and was quite squeamish at the thought of ever doing it to someone.

    When I was a kid, my friend insisted that his dad learned a knockout technique from a Special Forces guy, where you karate chop the neck and the liver at the same time (some kind of overload thing). To do it at the same time, you have to use really shitty body mechanics and even I could see that, so I challenged him to do it on me, since I was so sure it wouldn't work. It didn't knock me out, but it did kinda hurt my neck, but I tried to act like it didn't.

    Bahahahaha, downstairs pressure points! Wouldn't that have been kind of creepy to teach in a dojo though?
