In BJJ when people turtle I put my shin on the back of their kneck and grind it in hard.... MAKE THEM PAY FOR THEIR INSOLENCE!!!! I guess that's not as useful under Judo rules though is it?
Indeed, you do know, after reading my post.
Because jiu jitsu has t3h r34l grappling. We're the most complete grappling system out there.
You don't say...

As long as it's used as an active, attacking position I have no problem with the hands and knees turtle. I often end up there against bigger guys, to me it's preferable to a rib crushing pin (my poor poor ribs), and there are a few good offensive options to try out.
It's the "lying on your belly wrapped up tighter than Michael Jackson's straight jacket" turtle that pisses me off, there's literally nothing to do from there except wait.
Hey dude, I'm not hedgehodgey. I'm not gonna win a judo promo tournament by pulling guard and armlocking.
Or pulling guard and sweeping....er, i mean, suma gaeshi-ing.
I love it when some bucolic e-tard on this forum gets ANNOYED ABOUT THE INTERNET so he wants to FIGHT ABOUT IT IN REAL LIFE.
What I'm trying to say is joe, stop being retarded.
I was waiting for the Comic Book Trivia Gauntlet to be dropped and make it a Modern Day Pentathlon.

Does calling out Sirc really count tho?
