Only if there are banjo's playing in the background.

Knocking someone out is also harder than defending against a punch. You simply need more punches... as well as submission attempts. If it would be so easy to defend against submissions we wouldn't see any of them. If it should come the day without submission attempts this would also be the day without submission defence training, guess what happens.

I found it pretty persuasive. What do you guys think?
I think that obtaining a dominant ground position has to be classed as offensive grappling. So I disagree on that part of the point.
If you are saying it is easier to go for GnP than submissions from said dominant ground position, I would tend to agree, it appears to be a safer option that requires less skill.
I base these opinions on watching the fights, since I don't train MMA.
See my tongue. SEE IT!

I'd like the author of the article to distinguish between 'offensive grappling' and 'defensive grappling.'
Is it offensive grappling when I am in a dominant position already?
Or does it start when I begin to escape from a bad position? In this case, I am going on the offense by trying to improve my position.
Or is it when I am in a dominant position and trying for a submission or punching it out?
What is the distinguishing feature of offensive and defensive grappling?
The lack of a clear explanation of those terms in addition to the lack of common BJJ terminology when talking about positional maintenance and improvement just tells me that the author hasn't done any or a lot of grappling.

What's a grapple?
OH! I've had those. They are delicious.
And I can defend against them. I just haven't seen anyone attacked with one in the cage.

sorry, I stopped reading this piece of **** when i saw this
I think it’s important to have this distinction because many fighters make the mistake of spending too much time working on bags, forms, katas,
pro nonsense self defense

Confirmed: Just because you put a bunch of lulzy Elmore pics in an "article" doesn't mean Bullshido will approve.
