    Yeah, even my former sifu..who was about as mean and nasty as those old school CMA men can get ( he was also ex military) wasn't a big fan of the Gnp.
    It isn't the best example for kids I suppose. I mean, would you want your ten year old to go for the Gnp in his first schoolyard fight? Having the other kid down , face to the pavement and punching him in the back of the head?
    Its not exactly honorable fighting...

    Have you seen a schoolyard fight lately? They're pretty much all sloppy GnP.

    Also punching to the back of the head is illegal in any MMA organization you'd care to look at, so they're learning that from somewhere else.

    Yes, and most of those are jokes. Working as a playground monitor and at various schools they look nothing like MMA. The controlled Gnp freaks people out. Although, that is what people seem to miss.

    WWE but, just like everything good is karate everything bad is MMA.

    As a grappling type, I think that gnp is very violent looking, but to a lot of people watching Johnny choke little Timmy in the schoolyard is probably horrific. I think we fear what we don't understand. Punching people freaks me out. Admittedly, if little Timmy's arm snapped in half, it might look pretty nasty.

    Another reason why Bruce Lee was much better than Jackie Chan; there's like, a whole page in the Tao of JKD about hitting a man while he's down. ;)

    Once again, he's talking about the ethics of hitting a "downed" opponent in sport; this obviously has no bearing on his opinion about actual self defense.

    Well, the thing is Lee didn't really like or approved of what he perceived as "sport" versions of martial arts.
