    Hmmm, dude, I've been hit in the biceps and on my ribs by those. Fucking hurt. I'm also quite certain that the person delivering such blows does not do so as hard as he would with a flat fist (which does not take away the effectiveness of getting hit hard by those in a soft area, specially from a dominant position * hint: someone has mounted you and either has your back or your side *).

    It's the same argument with kicking with the shin vs kicking with the instep. Yep, the instep can break and go shitty far easier than kicking with the shin... yet, people can get knock the **** out with by someone who knows how to use them.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Heh..dragon knuckle to the ribs is mean. Pull that on someone in sparring and they will remember it.

    I don't know. It's not really YMAS material and a well respected user reported the thread asking for a move. Wolf moved it to Strikestan, but Omega dumped it back to YMAS.

    Let's see whether I can slam this thread hard enough into Gitmo that it sticks there.
    Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.
