    To deadly to spar?

    Before I begin, I would like to bravely cover my ass. I KNOW how flimsy the 'To deadly to spar' excuse is. In fact members of this forum have convinced me to start training BJJ, Judo and Freestyle Wrestling at an MMA gym near me.

    But really, some techniques really aren't the kind you'd want to practise in the gym. You'd get kicked out of any reputable gym for kicking the groin or poking eyes.
    So you can't really practise them.

    And obviously, this makes these techniques impossible to train properly, and therefore, impossible to apply correctly.

    If we continue this train of thought, how do you justify the crippling of a drunken attacker. Most countries have extremely harsh self defense laws, and while it may not be strictly illegal, it could be hard to make a case for causing lifetime damage to your assailant. (I'm not a lawyer, but it makes sense that they would ask you if you used the minimum force possible)

    But let's say you are a sociopathic vigilante who longs to feel the power of destroying any poor bastard who looks at you funny. I assume most street fights take place on the street, and the street is usually concrete. Any Judo throw is going to be a likely KO, and a MT punch without gloves would hurt. Same for a BJJ submission, if your opponent does not tap, he can be in a world of hurt for almost as long as the BJJ player wants.

    And where the hell do you LARPers get off saying your pretentious and BS arts are so deadly anyway. I'm more scared of a 200lb MMA fighter than a fat, wannabe ninja anyway.

    Saying your an ex SEAL or whatever doesn't work either. If your arts were so deadly, the army or whatever might actually use them. Instead they usually take the nations combat SPORT such as MCMAP (BJJ and MT, basically), Thailand's MT based Lerdrit and China's San Da. Why don't you just use these arts and retain a semblance of respect in the community you LARPing ****.

    *Disclaimer*
    Of course I do not recommend fighting at all, I would prefer we all learned Parkour and sprinting, as I have previously stated, but sometimes (very rarely) you might have to fight.

    Yeah I know. But instead of bullies yelling SEARCH FUNCTION NOOB! I thought I could put it in a thread. After all this is YMAS, where 4 in 5 dead horses go to get beaten.

    If I am a troll (I'm not) at least I'm more eloquent, reasonable and accurate than most.

    MMA meatheads have no respect. Every "TMA" master would cripple you in a street fight. Enjoy your sports.
