    Apes, on the other hand, regularly change between all their limbs for utility and stability, especially if you're talking about monkeys with prehensile tails. The possibilities for a variety of strikes and grappling techniques seem endless! And to find the most effective ones, all we have to do is study what they're already doing! Surely someone has done some research on monkey fighting techniques, right? Right?

    Thank you for the information. All the other threads are for humans though, this is clearly for non-human simians.

    With that said:

    Dude...look at how they attempt to leg sweep each other...fascinating.

    Why is Bob Sapp fighting a gorilla?




    look how much one can teach apes.
    YouTube- ‪Tae Kwon Do Monkey!‬‎

    Someone should train a monkey in bjj, honestly. I think he could understand that it's a sport and he doesn't have to bite his opponent. Any ape expert here?

    Large non-human primates (any objections???) are incredibly strong - much moreso than you'd think. Could one be trained to do BJJ whilst not, say, bending elbow joints fully backwards, or choking until the neck bones dislocate?

    Yep - and this is the case for most birds. Parrots can, however potentially use three limbs for utility whilst on the ground - which opens up the potential for true groundfighting.

    YouTube- ‪Jojo and Abu Caiques wrestle: Abu does somersault & Jojo headbutts‬‎
    YouTube- ‪Caiques wrestling‬‎

    AFAIK, the two Caique species are the only birds that do this regularly. Note the attempts to keep the opponent at a distance by turning to face him on the ground and kicking at the air.
