    I've punched someone and then found myself mysteriously in side control, kneeing them in the head

    but I don't know any BJJ

    You're such an instigator. :)

    If it's multiple opponents then obviously you'll need to abandon your BJJ and use something like taichi, wang chun or kempo.
    Nah, grab the littlest guy, get him in a rear naked choke and use him as a battering ram to get through the rest of them.

    KempoFist claimed once to have won a few street fights by armbar, why don't you ask him?
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    i actually used judo (not bjj but close enough) today at school with a stoner that started some ****. We were playing volleybell and a guy on my team hit him in the face with a spike, so he charged under the net and started swinging on the guy. I grabbed his from the side and kind of stepped through with an osoto gari so as not to throw him. I landed in side control, transitioned into a kesa gatame, then put his arm in a keylock with my leg and held him there till he got the picture.

    no injuries i can report, of course its rare to see broken glass, lava, and aids needles on gym floors

    This story is void due to the event not taking place on the "Street."

    i did a few months ago when some one tried to steal my motorcycle. osoto gari (judo) a rnc, and then later a a side choke from side control, and finished it off with a kimura. it was great. it was like i was in a tournament, but he was at a 13year old white belt level. i took gold.

    i was surprised to see that there was not any lava, or needles with aids and meth inside. i did scrape up my knees, but he got a destroyed shoulder and needed facial and back of head stitches.

    i have used grappling in street fights, singles, doubles and body lock takedowns.

    for bjj in particular, the position dominance it teaches, how to hold mount and one time an upa sweep from mount into guard top.
