A few points.
1) You contradict yourself.
2) This is EXACTLY WHAT I JUST SAID.
3) You fail at consistency.

Not really. I think I failed at clarity. What I said is.
Someone who trains resistance against opponents who are only grappling in response is better at transitioning between ranges than a pure striker, and not as as good as someone who has trained those transitions with someone also trying to hit them them very very hard while they do them. I further asserted that the latter is what I would consider my benchmark for effective self defense training.
So all i'm saying is that being able to apply your grappling skills in a fight with involve doing it while someone tries to hit you, and that actually training that part of the fight will make you better at it than not training it. If you never get hit while rolling I would consider part of your training missing....If this is one of your goals.
That make more sense?

Pardon the interruption, but after reading ALL 38 pages of posts here, it seems that the solution has nothing to do with BJJ or CMA or aliveness or whatever.
Cullion: it sounds like you just want better moderation in the CMA forums...
Couldn't you have just said that?
