    I myself do, at least once a day.

    I am often more like a tar baby than a ball of yarn, though.

        I wanted him to say something that made some sense. That was optimistic.

          Ah come on Heuristic. I was going to give you the benefit of the doubt here thinking with the list not being flooded with TKD and Karate styles that you'd some what changed over the year and matured a tad. Then you drop back into your old daft shit.

            Do you smell that smell?

            You know, that smell between the junk and the ass?

            Because that is what this thread smells like.

                Yes, Lavender.

                And a lot of sex.

                So much sex, the musk of sex has been completely depleted.

                And all the world, sat a legs a quivering, and smoked that cigarette as if they might never rise from bed again.

                Not for water, not for pee, but because the slightest movement caused their lower extremities to seize in a rapturous protest.

                Because the clitoris was never a simple nub.

                And was more like a highway of adventure, that had to be spelunked with the rhythm of a Samba dancer and the precision of a silk wrapped vibrating riding crop.

                    This gives me great pause in believing your whole project. This is not a purely positive quality for teaching how to fight. There is a difference between arts that act as a funnel system (progressively filtering out those who lack the right genetics/exogenous hormones/recklessness) and arts that are designed pedagogically to develop talent from where it is.

                      Shit, I forgot san da oriented taiji, the closest to my actual desired fighting style when not passing the guard or choking a fool.

                          Though far from complete, I believe CW combines the best of two worlds (wrestling and submissions), hence making it nr 1 for me as a unarmed fighting system opposite another unarmed opponent.

                          Training for the competition of MMA. The stances, tactics, techniques, that go along with how to best prepare yourself for MMA rule-sets.

                              Life is not a video game. Martial arts do not have numerical stats and special powers like Dungeons & Dragons character classes. (Submissions +3! Bonus "pinning" skill!) Catch wrestling is essentially nonexistent—how can it combine the best of any worlds?

                              In the world we live in, martial arts are people: people who run or train at actual gyms in physical locations. That's why this question has a kind of Batman versus Spiderman aspect to it that I find uninteresting. (It's also the most common motivation behind divorcing these kinds of questions from purpose or application.) To make my objection concrete, I bet that 1. 100x more people have access to a BJJ gym than a catch wrestling gym, and 2. for 96.4% of people who have the option to train either one, the BJJ gym will provide better grappling training.

                              I'm going to try not to get bogged down in argument about how many catch wrestlers can dance on the head of a pin. So sure, if there were catch wrestling gyms and tournaments across the land in equal abundance to the many BJJ gyms in urban areas across the West of the real world, then I bet cross-pollination with BJJ and MMA would make catch wrestling a great way to train takedowns, reversals, and submissions, and it would be a fine choice for learning to fight. San da taiji would still whup its ass though, because you get the same +4 to Takedowns and a way cooler Kicking Attack power-up.

                                You can't go wrong with BJJ either if the sparring rounds starts standing up (which my intended club in fact does). So it's an easy pick for me.
