    When I was showing my ex GF some basic grappling moves (how to do an RNC, kimura/americana, triangle and kimura from guard, basic sweeps, pummelling for Thai clinch or underhooks, etc.) she would often use her tai-chi anti-grapples on me, such as grabbing the loose skin on the sides of my midsection and twisting it, or poking me or grabbing my ribs and trying to crush them. Invariably my reaction is to go "ow, quit it!" and then pretend to mount punch her, or drop elbows, or take whatever submission I am demonstrating and start REALLY applying it a bit (example; if she tries to pinch me during an RNC I just start tightening the choke more and more to demonstrate how stupid that counter is.)

    Doing these annoyance moves and hoping that your opponent is stupid/weak enough to be so distracted by the pain that they will let you escape instead of crushing you like a bug demonstrates an ignorance of groundfighting and aliveness in general so large it is staggering.

    I bit a guy in a fight once. It broke his crapple. Then I choked him. EOF.

    That being said.... I wouldnt count on biting to save my ass. I did bite him because I was feeling lazy, he was a punk ass pot stealing bitch, and I was going to win not matter what he did.

    PS the bite was to his shirtless nipple. Let the jokes begin

    Thank you. And that's why this guy should consider rounding off the points on that ring a bit, too, because I'm the worst grappler any of you will ever meet and I'm pretty sure I could insert his hand--and that ring--into any part of his body I want.

    I am agape at the stupidity of someone who thinks he doesn't have to know how to fight because he has a ring with two small, sharp spikes on it. He might as well be putting his keys between his fingers. At least that would be free, and women wouldn't look at him funny.

    I guess there is just some sort of indefeatable logic that:

    (Shitty MA + Biting) > (Effective MA + Biting)

    For some reason they think they without "Formal" instruction on how to bite someone (did u guys see this guys post on "proper" biting???) pinch someone, gouge someones eyes, grab someones sack etc.... then the fighter with the effective MA will not be able to utilize, or won't think to utilize such tactics, and will fall prey to them by the shitty MA guy. The power of delusion is quite strong.

    biting *may* work as a suprise thing

    but if you just bit someone and didnt escape while they are suprised, now you have a pissed off person in a position to do you a permant injury
    not smart

    Someday, when my grappling is up to snuff and my ribs are whole again, I'm gonna get in a street fight with some TMAer, and then get back mount and just bite the living hell out of the back of their neck.

    I'll be the Sam-Pire, a Sambo-using vampire greatly feared in eastern asia.

    Or perhaps take mount on captain bite-armbar here and then instead of going for a submission just gouge his eyes out.

    I've had to explain to several people that when I practice boxing or spar, I still mentally look for opportunities to fingerjab someone in the eye or punch/kick to the groin. If I was in a serious fight, not over a spilt drink but for my life or something, why the hell do they think I would magically forget how to claw or bite someone?
