    That's a no-shitter, but it bears repeating.

    (I found out the hard (read: stupid) way years ago.)

    The only thing I found amusing was the "who would you rather have choice". I mean, it isn't really a choice- how many Dan Hendersons are there? It's like asking for Tiger Woods as your golf partner. The other thing is, some of the best "coaches" are not always great ex fighters, only observant, dedicated professionals- look at Matt Hughes- would you wnat him as your coach, amking you feel like **** all the time, and then taking credit for having a phenom like Danzig on his team.
    I think you missed my point. I chose two extremes here. You got grandmaster ninja larper vs one of the epitome's of sport combat arts. If you want less of an extreme how about Mr. ATA Krav Maga once a week vs State wrestling champion turned MMA fighter.

    Some inexperience people get confused over training vs fighting. Training always has an objective and having the ability to use the equipment/gear properly is the smarter way to train.

    I used to be against safety equipment other than cup and gloves, but 20 years later, I know better ways to train people than the way I was trained.

    Has anyone mention tape and wraps? I have used tape for injuries, protection, fixing gear...it's like multi-purpose.

    I think being young and being able to recover quicky adds to the non-chalance as far as protective equipment goes. After awhile all those shots start to add up. I'm so busted up at 43 I'd go in there like Iron Man if I could. Omega, I destroyed one of my nuts last year (non MA related), wear a cup dammit.

    Wraps are debatable although I have my guys wear them. Duct tape and athletic tape are a good thing but not neccessary.
