    Or a brick. And then drop it on your head.

    And do Judo.

    Finally, now I know what Bullshido is all about....

    I've been in the dark this whole time.

    I bet 6 months from now he'll resurface and talk about how pressure point fighting is the ****

    You are absolutely right. This can easily be discerned by looking at the taxonomy of animals, which clearly puts humans under the order Mantodea, whereas monkeys are under the order Primates. Therefore, strictly vertical strikes and generally mimicking a mantis is both more natural and intuitive than forcefully straightening your arm so your knuckles intersect the volume your opponent's head occupies.

    Maybe he should go into the wild and observe Mantids in their natural habitat. Learn their wiley ways and then he could come back and teach us all how to fight properly.

    Then he'd also be the reel d34dly.

    I'd imagine that it'd have to be a pretty intensive research project taking at least 10 years.
    Op, you should get right on that.

    We should divide the grappling styles into animal sub-catergories;

    Monkey style

    Bear style (mainly stand up wrestling and face eating)

    Amoeba style (Grappling fatties; Tap out due to suffocation by mantitties)

    Weird Perverted uncle Style (not an animal but what the hey)
