    I too felt that the video from one thread would make a fine spin-off thread.

    So you disagree that Apes would excel at BJJ then?

    Or should we say, Ape BJJ > all Ape martial arts?

    Are we talking about apes or monkeys?

    Like, gorillas versus orangutans and capuchins. Or to be more specific, knuckle-walking versus tree-swinging.

    'Cause I wanna see a gorilla do Muay Thai.

    I've never heard of any creature other than apes excelling at BJJ.

    Ape BJJ + Ape Wrestling= Win. Although the guard of an ape would be pretty bad, I think it should stick to top position and head and arm chokes.

    On second thought it's butterfly guard and arm drags would be amazing.

    You know there's already an "Ape Style" kungfu out there, right? This question has been answered many years ago.

    I'd go for brawling. Apes are ridiculously strong. One hammerfist of an average sized ape would knock most people out.
