    Ah gotcha, and agreed. It wasnt about learning them from a MMA point of view but more from my own training point of view. My own training has very limited ground work so it was a bit of a measuring stick. But I was there and hell, I was a .500 winner (had to cheat for a few of those) in 2 years of High School wrasslin a thousand years ago, so I toyed around with it.

    That and I dont want to be embarrassed at the next Throwdown;)

    If you admittedly don't train MMA how do you know what that point of view really is? As far as I can tell the MMA point of view is using what works regardless of preconceived notions. Just because you train something else for a portion of your game doesn't mean your personal favorite style is invalidated.

    I still consider Shidokan my main style and I've been training BJJ for almost a year.

    By your defination of "MMA point of view is using what works regardless of preconceived notions" then I do know what the MMA point of view is and able to speak on it.

    I was not trying to invalidate my style or any other. As a striking art I wanted to play with more grapplers because I realized I hadnt in too long. I did. And made a post on it. Shared what I felt worked and didnt from my point of view.

    The point of your posts is if I want to learn how to defend against a takedown, go learn from takedown folks. Ok, point taken.

    Exactly.

    Forums are really bad at transmitting tone, sorry if I sounded heavy handed. The truth is you obviously seem to "get it" but many many people don't and never reach that point of understanding.
