    Women's centers, such as the one I linked to, often offer counseling or referrals to the same. You should check it out.

    You may stop posting whenever you like.

    How is, "BJJ is an excellent anti-rape martial art because most rapes end up with groundfighting between attacker and target" NOT your point?

    Bjj is probably the best martial art to defend against a rape, but there are probably better ways to help prevent a rape than martial arts like awareness of the people around you, watching your drinks when your out and more.

    Osaka get off the internet and go get help. This is another one of your threads that devolves into your fear of rape.

    Running around thread to thread trying to find the best art, technique, style, teacher or thread to help you isn't going to work.

    Go talk to a professional.

    Sweet homo Jesus, this thread is a complete clusterfuck.

    Osaka Peach, Frye and Goodridge were certainly powerful strikers. But their striking would look out of place against the strikers fighting today at the top levels. Abbott wasn't in their league back in the day, much less trying to be a top ten fighter today with his striking. And since you like superfights, I highly recommend UFC 9's Superfight (Ken Shamrock vs. Dan Severn) for an example of the great striking that was on display. Just don't bother if you don't want to watch two men literally circle each other with no attempt to strike or grapple for at least 15 minutes. Severn later stated that his strategy was to wait until the crowd started booing and got Shamrock riled up enough to do something hasty and make a mistake. It was illegal to throw punches with closed fists to the head in that event, a compromise which, along with a lack of headbutts, appeased the Detroit legal authorities enough to make them allow the UFC to go forward--at 4:30 in the afternoon on the day of the event. It was brutally lousy all around.

    As for the vitally important issue of BJJ vs. rape, I've long been used to hearing how BJJ won't work against weapons, won't work against multiple attackers, won't work on pavement, won't work on hardwood kwoon/dojang/dojo floors, won't work on broken glass, won't work on lava, won't work on junkie syringes . . . . but I've never, ever heard the "BJJ won't work against your husband, boyfriend, or other acquaintances" argument.
    Thank you all for showing me something new. I am off to commit seppuku with a whitetail antler.

    Tank was winning the striking exchange against Frye back in the finals UU 96. He was too winded to recover after slipping, though.

    "I felt like I was being raped by Freddy Mercury."
    Tank Abbot, post fight interview after UU 96.

    And the circle of life is completed.

    No. That was after Ultimate Ultimate 1995, against Dan Severn (Who rode his back for the entire time, hence the rape comparison).
