Yeah, that's what sucks about grappling. So many of the best techniques leave you wide open to bites. Even if the SHTF scenario doesn't include zombies & ****, try dealing with a human bite during a socio-economic upheaval, all kinds of nappy fuckers running around, especially when antibiotics are hard to come by, not that most of you would know the best antibiotics for a human bite...
Me, I'd rather stick to my current style being more strikes that grappling. Don't get me wrong, I'm not adverse to grappling when I have to, but still...
