    And yet that is exactly what you have done.

    In any case, you guys can carry on your conversations and what not, I don't know if I feel like posting with people who seem to be more prone to personal attacks and inane idiocy or simple discounting of other people's beliefs without discussion than from trying to learn from each other
    We actually love rage posters around here, they make me laugh.

    Secondly, you have just joined the whiney "I'll never post in this forum again club". People say this and then post a couple dozen more times before changing their screen names (hoping that no one will recognize who they are)

    Thirdly,You sir, have been called out on your lack of experience and recent activity of "talking out your ass". If you had a clue about actual street brawling, you would never have made a retarded comment against Gracie Jiu Jitsu, Brazillian Jiu Jitsu or any other grapplling art. These arts are proven combat effective, you however are NOT!

    So, in closing I would just like to say, enjoy your stay here at Bullshido and feel free to STFU.

    Pay particular attention to grappler vs striker matches. I don't even care what style of grappling it was. Notice how long it takes the fight to end up on the ground, usually about 30 seconds. And this is against trained strikers who are doing there best not to end up on the ground.

    I'll do you one better : Even when it was striker vs striker it almost always ended up on the ground. The infamous Fred Ettish fight. Krotty vs krotty ends up on the ground.

    Most striking TMA's didn't even work standing up like they were supposed to. It may have started out as two dudes approaching each other in their most badassed "kung-fu" stance but as soon as they engaged each other all those stances, forms and katas were abandoned like a prom night dumpster baby and the two strikers end up clinching/dirty boxing and until their feet tangle and they fell over. MOST old timey UFC fights ended with both guys on the ground. Same went for Battlecade XF and the other early NHB venues.

    There wasn't a serious stand up striker with reliable KO power in the UFC until "Tank" Abbott (and even he wrestled in college).

    Go watch the James Toney vs Randy Couture fight. Again about 30 seconds until the striker is on the ground.

    If your not a trained grappler once you're on the ground your mine and there isn't shit you can do about it.

    To make you feel worse this goes for any BJJ white belt who has about a year of training under his belt.

    This isn't bragging either, this is my experience from rolling with people who had black belts in other arts and started taking BJJ. Helpless on the ground.

    Now the really said part. I'm a 56 year old hobbyist who has only been training for about 2 years.

    You need to visit your local BJJ school and see what I'm talking about.

    You've admitted you have no real BJJ/grappling experience. Why does it hurt to hear it from someone else?

    The facts are your words.

    Your criticism of something you don't understand shows your ignorance.

    Then you don't know what you're talking about. You're speaking from ignorance.

    So basically, you, someone completely untrained in BJJ, made the mistake of going to the ground at the wrong time in the wrong place, so you assume that's what everyone trained in BJJ for self-defense or combat would do?

    That's a rather large leap of faith for someone who's never trained in Gracie Combatives or Brazilian Jujutsu.

    Hey, he's got jokes!

    No, but your opinion shows your ignorance, and you don't have any experience, because you haven't trained in the subject matter.

    By the way, Kinamutai isn't the only art that teaches biting... a KM instructor, a Pukulan silat instructor, a "self defense" instructor, a kenpo karate instructor, and my fucking anatomy professor all suggested it as a good means of self defense, each going into varying degress of how and when to use it.
    How many of them have enough of an understanding of grappling to be able to use biting as an effective countermeasure against a determined attacker trained in Brazilian jujutsu? Because the reality of it is as MK13 says. Bite me at the wrong time, in the wrong position, I'm going to break your jaw.

    Actually, that's exactly what you suggested. You're now backpedaling.

    Originally posted by ghummel View Post

    This is called a strawman. You think that because the Gracie Combatives system starts from a grappling base the Gracies automatically discount these tools?

    No.

    What they discount is the effectiveness of these tools to be utilized against them by the untrained.

    You wanna talk about how easy it is to pop out an eyeball? Let's talk about how easy it would be for me to snap your arm if you tried, much less the low likelihood of you being in any position to even sucessfully try to poke my eyeball out.

    So that makes you a retard, right?

    Within a 20 mile radius of my bar, I can name at least fifteen MMA gyms. I can name countless high schools with varsity wrestling teams. I can name five rugby clubs.

    Secondly, if you're not fighting someone with superior groundfighting skill, why are you advocating biting and eye gouging? You would gouge out the eye of someone who you can handle utilizing other means?

    What kind of sociopath are you?

    What I see from your posts is that you have very little experience to actually be offering criticism of a program you have not participated in.

    From reading your post, I can tell you have very minimal BJJ experience, very little actual combat experience, and are definitely not a real Jeet Kune Do practitioner.
    Defensive is the person who wrote two essays to address his anger over this sentence. Not once addressing the points in the entire quote.

    See the BJJ is too expensive thread before coming up in here saying you can't train because you can't afford it. Plenty of other full time students on this board manage to train just fine.

    I've read the thread, and my initial post to it was in direct reponse to the topic. I was simply tossing in my opinion, which was certainly a lot more thought out than little jabs about "water melon juice."

    What prompted me to get off topic was when somebody came in and told me that I didn't know what I was talking about, said that my training in JKD was invalid, and that I had no real "experience." I took offense. My training is/was (can't afford the gym dues in my current situation, but I TRY to train as much as possible when I can with whoever I can) legitamite...when he says he's Vunak's guy...that could mean to me that he's a real instructor under Vu or that he bought showed up to a quick fix instructorship seminar.

    I just want to know who the hell he thinks he is to make those types of attack without knowing the facts...and imply that I could do the same based upon PFS's recent marketing strategies.

    I didn't come here to make a scene or stir shit up or troll.
    You're last post had enough implicit information to infer that you have your own pet beliefs about the topic, so I'm guessing you are probably interested in making your own point...which is a good reason to censor me instead of him I suppose.

    In any case, you guys can carry on your conversations and what not, I don't know if I feel like posting with people who seem to be more prone to personal attacks and inane idiocy or simple discounting of other people's beliefs without discussion than from trying to learn from each other.

    Why does this shit always get started. NOTHING prepares you for a real life situation. WTF are you going to do with your deadly skillz if something you didn't train for comes up. Will you be able to tap? will the bell ring? no. NO ONE HAS A SYSTEM. Please, just stop it. Sure. If you get into a bar fight and a guy stands right in front of you you have a good chance of landing some shots...but what if you slip on some ice or something? Too many variables. Just shut up and train! Fuck!

    We will not even get into the discussion if you are drunk off your ass or got blue ballz from the hot chick at the bar that you're not going to fuck.

    In a real fight are you going to take it to the ground, stay standing or hit a mutha fucka over the head with a chair or as doug stanhope said "do some chest bumping till the bouncers come"? Frankly that's how about oh I don't know 100% of all "real life fight situations" end.

You guys are awfully clique-ish here.

    No, I moved your derail starting post and all that followed.
    Why?

    The original thread here:
    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=61440

    is way past your sport vs. street vs. Paper Tiger vs. glass vs. multiple attackers vs. anecdotal evidence vs. assumptions vs. passive aggressiveness vs. etc etc etc.

    Now, if you want, I can post the articles we have of BJJ TRAINED WOMEN stopping assaults. Before you do that weird restructuring of your argument, I'm not disagreeing that GC may have flaws.

    I'm specifically addressing this silliness:
    Gracie/Brazillian Jiu Jitsu is a great art, and it is probably the most thorough solution to fighting a larger opponent over a long period of time on the ground. A fight or an assault is different...and you don't want it to take a long time, and you certainly don't want to be laying on your back or sitting on somebody's chest when their friends arrive or rolling on broken glass trying with somebody who is trying to pull your seams apart with a pocket knife.
    What you typed applies to striking as well.
