    Saying "chokes the poll" sounds kinda wierd...

    Voted grapple but I'm getting more and more interested in striking as time goes on. For now though grappling is far more instinctive to me

    I'm training in striking, but to be honest, I've a feeling I'm more natural at grappling.

    yeah i agree with bell toller.
    i pick up grappling more easily but i think its just the intro to sparring happened straight away.

    But the two are essential to each other.

    you missed one category - weapons.

    These days I'm happy with whatever I manage to get.
    And that applies to so many areas of my life it's not even funny.

    true both are essential thats not even up for discussion.

    Its just if you could only train one and not the other which one would you enjoy the most?

    +1 for grappling from an enjoyment perspective, although I have more faith in my striking. Which is weird as my grappling is probably better than my striking (read: horribly average).

    I prefer to do the opposite of what my opponent is trying to do!

    Fun: Grappling. I think it's is more fun and a great resistance exercise.
    Street: both... position before submission OR strike

    Striking. Because it can be done from farther away.

    No offense intended, but I think if your close enough to make physical contact via striking, your close enough to make contact via grappling.

    I'd dispute that. I'm like 99.999999% sure I can kick someone's knee from farther than they can grab me unless they're like 7 feet tall.
