    If there was another point, it was far less entertaining than my vision of a battlefield locoplata.

    It seems like there are a good number of BBT-ka (on MAP, mostly) who stick close to the "you never want to go the ground in a real fight" rhetoric.
    And what do I see? Ninjas pulling guard. The first three of those clips involved some kind of sutemi-waza. Is there some cosmic force that makes BJJists a magnet for head kicks on the ground, but makes ninjas immune to them?

    When you see people like these, the question of "If they trained alive" becomes redundant. The question of "Will they ever?" is more relevent.




    The answer is "no" by the way. And if they ever did, they'd realise that the nearest MMA school is doing it far better already.

    That's a very important point that often gets glossed over in discussions of "making aikido alive" or "ninjitsu trained properly", and that is; why bother when someone else has been doing it for 100 years longer than you have?

    Well yeah. I tried to say throws. They didn't teach me any takedowns, really. Just a sloppy double leg shoot without mentioning any finer points on how to do it properly, like with throws too. The way they teached the shoot I'd be chocked out in a guillotine 9/10 times against someone who knows at least a little of what he's doing.

    And it kills the ide about never going to the ground. But the Buji at MAP aren't going worry about facts. They also talk about how bad competition is but forget the Takamatsu actually competed in JJ shiai.

    Well, obviously: you can SEE a jiujutsu-ka on the ground.

    Let's see. Completely unrealistic techniques on compliant ukes (LOL THE MAN WITH THE SMG SURELY WON'T PRESS THE TRIGGER WHILE I LUNGE AT HIM), fat bastard of a black belt AND shitty nu-metal for music. A real winner.
