Do you do any sandbag work?
Ah no, I lack the flexibility required for a oly style front squat... and getting into position to squat it up from a pair of sawhorses is quite a task. So either I use straps to keep the elbows up or I revert to the bbuilder front squat variation.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
