    Pushing on the head and shoulders can deter a take down and couple that with lateral motion and good footwork is an effective means of stopping a take down. Given the context of self defense or protecting yourself in a real environment he has some decent points.

    The pushing on the stiff arm is not the best advice since I deal in action reaction not meeting force with force.
    Points well taken, especially with regards to grip fighting. However, once you start working on grip fighting or stopping a take down with something other than a devastating strike, then you are no longer striking, you are grappling. Calling it "anti-grapple" is the stupidist **** I've read. It's stand up grappling with the intent of not being taken down. Yes, Chinaboxer makes some good points and yes, there is the potential there for his grappling to be better, but it is still grappling, not anti-grappling.

    No such thing as antigrapple, just like there's no anti-Lego Lego pieces, or anti-bathroom bathrooms, you are doing what you're doing. Acoustic guitar isn't anti-guiatr if my intention is to avoid playing electric guitar...and I should probably get some sleep

    He wouldn't have been grounded if he had sprawled.

    Chunners don't need to cross-train, remember? Their r34l deadly has been proven time and time again in venues where two people are actually trying to KO or submit each other at full force... Err wait.

    "Some" is what led to this video.

    Good point, IIF. In this instance it appears that none is actually better than some.

    it's not as though it's the be-all-and-end-all of takedowns. Not having it will be a weakness, but it being all there is, means not will you get taken down, but when. What if tackled from behind? Then you're already on the ground before you know you're in some sh"&.

    To learn how to best avoid armbars, study armbars. Same for any skill in fighting. The only other option is the James Thompson "watch a lot of dvd's" method. (kidding, there is no substitute). To avoid takedowns... Well you get it. There is no one solve-all and that's just tough.Now I'll shut it up and let the chunnery continue.

    2. I too have used the groin bite like Lebell. I'm not sure what I actually bit, but it did get a much larger guy off of my chest and avoided a savage beating.
    Let me see. Get my head beat in, and end up retarded, OR bite a dick and run like a Kenyan. I'll go with biting the dick and worry about the psychological ramifications later, with my fully functioning brain pan. I don't suspect I will suffer much in the second scenario.
