    I was speechless.
    Given that I find broken feet to be somewhat detrimental to my enjoyment I have no argument his statement.

    STD perhaps?

    This is why I've begun to change because you will fight as you train. Is grappling fun? Yes. Is it the go to idea outside of the dojo/sporting event? Nope.
    I'm not dissing whatever it is you train in. This isn't 'grappling roX0rz, striking suXX0rz'. What I *am* highlighting is the arguments from the guys we get on here who train only katas, point sparring (at the most) and the throwing/jointlocking of compliant ukes and then say that grappling arts which train with aliveness and full resistance do not and cannot work on the mean str33tz because of reasons x, y and z. If this isn't you, then this isn't aimed at you.

    They say "it doesn't work against multiple opponents", whilst implying at the same time that their non-pressure-tested stuff will.

    They talk of the risks of grappling on broken glass, etc., with the attitude that practitioners of their art will never have to deal with it because they will never be taken to the ground in a streetfight.

    It's dangerous thinking.

    Fuck you Twitcher, I'll fucking pull x-guard on the street against 99% of people and be on top of them before they can do anything about it.
    Almost all competition level BJJ is total overkill against an untrained opponent, and that includes pulling guard on the street. Against untrained people on the street most BJJers could get away with pullin guard if they wanted to.
    Most of them WON'T because they won't need to, but they COULD and still not be in any real danger from most people.

    Another fantasy warrior is heard from. How about giving us some of these 'reality' training techniques since you will fight as you train. Do you train to the death, eye gouges, group stompings of students, maybe beating them with baseball bats? Please, enlighten us stupid grapplers. :wbaba2

    We don't need to spar because our grandmaster once bumped into a guy that lived next door to bruce lee!

    Yeah, we could call it "Bullshidoka Arguments" and put it in the MABS forum...

    Yeah, the whole glass/needles/lava thing is brought up a lot in these kinda threads.

    But i would just like to add that i have been thrown to the floor on two occasions in street fights, and one of those times it was onto a load of broken glass. so unfortunately it does happen!

    I think Kesting probably knows more about Bullshido than any of us. He's one of those guys that spent 30 years in MA doing everything. All kinds of kung-fu and karate. He gave a great interview for the fightworks podcast (find it yourself) where he talks about his unhappiness with a lot of TMAs.
