    It seems that some guy who practices Praying Mantis won in what I guess is the IFC Warrior's Challenge some time ago.

    The picture's caption mentions the fighter getting past his opponent's guard. Does Praying Mantis have procedures for this?

    No, it is impossible to pass the gaurd unless you use BJJ.

    Okay little idea either that was sarcasm or grab a crow bar and get your head out your ass....
    As for you question. No, I know of two praying mantis instructors and they do not traditionally teach groundfighting maneuvers. This is not to say that they don't cross train the grappling game as one of them do.

    Mantis is a very sticky art, getting the better of someone at close quarter is its bread and butter.

    It doesn't take a genious to adapt it to the ground.

    McDojo, is it what you do or is it what you think?

    You cannot fight on the ground unless you use BJJ <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

    He would have cross trained, he would have done MP (that' snot to say he used it), would probably need to use some type of groundfighting system imo.
    "Training = pain." - I said that.

    did he beat the other grapplers in this competition on his feet or on the ground?

    do we know what the background is of the person who's guard got passed? was he a grappler or a stand up fighter??

    I am very offended!!!

    How dare a CMA guy win a NHB tournament.
    He should know better tha TMA especailly CMA is worhless!!!

    (You know what is REALLY going to be funny is how the pple are going to try and discredit this!!!)

    >He would have cross trained, he would have done MP (that' snot to say he used it), would probably need to use some type of groundfighting system imo.

    I love this arguement most of all. Godforbid some one KNOWS how to use the tools given in his given art. We all on ONLY BJJ has groundfighting, Armbars, mounted attacks, etc. LMAO God that is silly. Look crosstraining is good but if you system has to tools then there is nothing wrong with it.

    Not that it has anything to do with CMA/MMA/TMA, but damn, from the pictures, it looked less like "Warrior Challenge VI" and more like "Malnutrition in Action".
