    When was the last time you used MA in a non-training situation?

    Disclaimer: I’m an unapologetic TMA enthusiast so some part of me wants to say ‘ha ha so there, you’re wasting your time and money training BJJ/MMA ‘ but another side genuinely wants to know WHEN was the last time you used it in a non-training situation. Mainly self defense situations I guess. However you can include competitions with monetary prizes but exclude what you do in your private time (ie one inch punch).

        I once used triangle from guard as foreplay.

          I see TMA peeps praising Taijitsu, nimpo, Black Panther Purple Kempo, Creole Swamp Judo, Chinese Line Dancing... I mean you name it, and I bet someone here has claimed it for saving their life on ice, steps, wet grass, bike crashes... and I can kinda see it for sure.

          A little good ukemi goes a long way to take away the panic in the air. I honestly couldn't tell you if it was the Gymnastics, Hapkido, or Judo that specifically saved me the other day.

              Gardeners were chopping down trees in the patio when a big branch came through the window.

                At work, that's all I'm going to say, a few weeks ago.

                Verbal Judo all the time, like, yesterday afternoon. Beats going hands-on, for sure.

                    At work Sunday January 20, 2019 4:14 pm. Domestic call with (highly) intoxicated male (5'-11 235#) charges me as soon as I get out of the truck (no time for Gerbil Voodoo). Taser deployed to no avail (6" probe spread & his drunken state), I ditch the Taser, revert to double-leg, gained side control to Americana and got the left handcuff on, I transition to turtle top attempt & fail RNC, (grind his face into the gravel) in back mount--so I maintain this for 7 minutes until backup arrives. Despite this asshats demands that I kill him, he went to jail in one piece, this was in an ice-covered gravel driveway and I shredded a brand new pair of Rocky boots, ended up sore as hell for three days, but no injuries.

                    I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

                        I see what YOU did there. I'm a giver, wife wanted to know what BJJ was like, so I choked her. No David Carradine jokes, please.

                        On the serious side, ukemi is always a win. Slip on ice, breakfall. Fall off a ladder, breakfall.

                        I had one employee-to-employee fist fight where I restrained the aggressor with a back arm lock and half nelson.

                              Yeah, but she was I think 30 or so at the time.
