    http://www.hoshin.com.au/ that is the most useless martial art in the world. It's some made up mixture of something somewhere and the Avalon dojo is their headquarters and the kids taught there can't even roll! or hold a stance, and they have like their 3rd belt and have been training there for like 6 months!

    One night I was with my wife at a bar. Some smart-a*s started flirting with my wife and grabbed her by the shoulders to pull her toward him. Now, I had many options. My Krav Maga instinct immediately shouted "thumb to the eyeball then grab that steak knife and go to town". My Muay Thai instinct said "oh, crap...she's in the way so I can't do anything". But my body immediately went to Ura Gyaku - one of the most basic, simple, non-compound Ninjutsu techniques a novice can easily pick up. Once he was face down on the floor with his arm locked under my crotch, I could've done anything to him...literally. I could've stomped the back of his neck or steak-knifed him to death had I pleased, and he couldn't have done a darn thing about it. (Obviously, as a true practitioner I did neither.)

    The point is, when the s**t really hits the fan your brain will immediately revert to what it thinks it knows is the best for the situation. In this case it was something I hadn't practiced in over 10 years.

    Don't call bullshit right away, It's definitely possible. I know most flashy arts are not practical but most jujutsu and ninjutsu locks grabs and takedowns can work if the situation allows. It's not often though but it does happen

    I call bullshit on the muscle memory being around after 10 years. Hell it has only been a few years since I have done Judo and I now have a difficult enough time pulling them off now against beginner BJJers.
    These things fade and more quick than one would like to admit.
