    FALSE! At least from what I've seen, most if not all dead bugs are comfortable in the guard... :laughing8

Then take him down and ask him again.

    I had a teacher suggest he could escape an armbar by pinching my ankle. I didn't bother arguing, I sat down and ask him to do it. He quickly revised his opinion after getting armbared.
    That's good advice, I was actually worried about him saying something about his coach "biting and eye gouging" etc, as a "no rules" situation. Last thing I'd want is to lose an eye or something while trying to pull of a triangle or something.

    Ok, so bad news and good news. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it due to a car accident shortly before, however a friend of mine (200lbs, beginner in BJJ) was able to go and from what I gathered from him was: The instructor was actually very friendly and said that he's been "beaten" by BJJ and MMA guys before, and that we're all only human and no one is invincible. He also said that San Soo was the art he chose to specialize in, but it doesn't mean it is the best by any means, and he said he would encourage his students to learn BJJ as it is a good supplement to any art. Apparently, according to my friend, the student was putting his instructor up on a pedastool and even after hearing this is still not convinced completely, but wanted to learn bjj.

    I'd say that's good news all round. Typical dimwitted student running his mouth no doubt.

    Yes, congrats on your BJ Jihad. Oh, wait...you said BJJihad. Somehow I don't think this term will catch on.

    Well, I guess I semi-succeeded in opening his eyes regarding his art, and the fact that no martial art exists that is flawless or unstoppable.
