I'm not sure who loses here?
You're a filthy ork sympathiser, aren't you?
What's Warcraft got to do, got to do with it, what's Warcraft but a second hand mmo?
Scissors beats paper,
Paper beats rock,
Rock beats scissors,
Grenade beats the armbar.
I wonder how hard it would be to arm bar a wookie?
you'd get DQ'd for pulling his (arm)hair
Cricket. Cricket cricket. :wow:
I think we may be staying from the original topic....
I agree and if I hadn't been at work today I would have split the thread. Can we get back in the vague area of the topic please guys. Or start a new thread to discuss whatever wild tangent this went on
That's not getting back on topic is it
I think this was the thread in which the age old argument of "BJJ lies about skill beating strength."
It's actually a factional thing in BJJ. the folks who have been pushing that advertising pitch aren't representative of BJJ or all the gracie family, only those who came to america and started pushing their business first and hardest.
This is an interview with Carlson
Ask Chewy!! Then let us know how it turns out!!
Its not quite chewy!
Re-iterating the point about getting back on track guys. From now on I'm simply deleting anything falling back to the sci-fi/nerd tangent.
Okay, tangent question.
Is brazilian jiu jitsu the best for open rule grappling comps?
or are the rules and numbers swayed in their favour?
I think it's the best art for women to learn from a self defence point of view.
I've seen wrestlers dominate grappling comps before but I don't know if their relative skill level was simply a lot higher and they sandbagged. I think the proportion of people who are bjj practitioners does skew it though
Purely theoretically in something like say, ADCC, I'd rate catch wrestling more. Better for points, better for position, but they don't really know what to do when you take their back and sink hooks in, or you get them in a dominant position. This is my experience training with only two pure catch wrestlers though.
