    yea...what was he trying to prove being there then?? this smells like it's gonna go down as another one of those 'TMA failed yet again' type thing......

    I have some JJJ experience. No expert on grappling, never claimed it.

    But what you don't see is who started in what position, plus we do not see ALL the drills.

    I also never said that about tapping either, who ever is superior is the one who survives.

    You can see:

    Noodlepower,
    I really don't think any reasonable person could spin it like that.
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    Not really.

    I dunno how to describe this, so I hope it makes sense.

    It's almost like an "ok" or an "affirmative." Like when someone makes a sudden noise, like their in pain, and when you check if their ok, they tap you, and you get up.

    Not a tap. When I was grappling, I never took one tap as a tapout, several taps=tapout.

    Looks to me like Louis was letting Djimbe know that he had been sitting inside an armbar and was finished. But you wouldn't notice that, would you?

    Point being, I said it wasn't a tap.

    Point being. There are a lot of ways that we can tell who knows how to grapple without seeing anyone submitted.

    The video is condescending to Djimbe and CMA by reference. He is freaking huge and I wouldn't want to have to deal with him angry in a free fighting situation. As big as he is, he can't seem to control that woman, and instinctively goes to her side in defense.

    If it were not for tigerfly, he wouldn't be in this mess (my best guess). Then again, I too am stating the obvious.
