    That is when guys started training in MMA which Bruce was saying to do since the 70's. You are right that Chuck incorporated BJJ before JKD. However, Bruce absorbed stuff from Gene Lebelle, Japanese Jujitsu (which is where Jujutsu originated) and wrestling. We were researching the ground game in general way before BJJ even existed.

    JKD guys were very excited about NHB when it first started. Their were litterally NO RULES or weight classes. We were going to be able to fight accordind to how we fight. Eye gouging, head butting, kneeing and kicking to the groin, biting. Then the athletic commision stepped in and wouldn't sanction the events unless rules were enforced making the sport safe. NO HOLDS BARRED is really MANY HOLDS BARRED, don't be decieved.
    Holy ****, I need to hop on into my "way back" machine so that I can get in to the proper ignorant 1995 MMA anti-history mindset to even consider continuing this dialog...wait how long did you say you were "incarcerated" for? you do know this is 2008 don't you? or did you write in Dukakis/Bentsen on the November 4th presidential ballot?

He thought I was about to tap but I reached in my jacket and grabbed my (unloaded) 32 cal Deringer and jammed it in his groin to prove a point. The fight would have continued in the cage. In the street I would have won.
    So, let me get this straight Sgt. Tackleberry, you get on the mats to train with friends carrying a concealed 32 cal pistol? Really? your options here are 3, choose one:

    1. You're a liar;
    2. You're a douchebag of phenominal proportions, or;
    3. All of the above.

    My vote is 3.

He started buckin like a bull so my focus was on keeping him down to pound him. His little buddy got up and hit me from behind with the corner of a milk crate. That is "AS [FULL OF ****] AS IT GETS"
    Again, I pick 3 and I fixed that for ya accordingly.

I have no problem taking a beating for the sake of learning. I like MMA and alot of JKD guys don't do well in it, by I also understand why.
    Whoop, hold on, I have to start up the "way back" machine again.....I'll be there in another 2 decades....please hold your breath and wait for me.
