In my opinion BJJ is the most practical. I mean 90% of fights go to the ground. And if someone takes you there its awesome to know what to do because in Jiu Jitsu you live on the ground. Greta work out too! :wink:


90% of fights may go to the ground, but BJJ isn't very practical outside of the ring. The last thing you want to do in a street fight is pull guard.


I completely disagree with that statement. And in Jiu Jitsu you dont just pull guard. In any fight you can just take it to the ground say get knee mount and punch the crap out of them. Or say they are on top, put them in a triangle choke, not tight enough to make them pass out, and punch em at will. BJJ is more practical then karate or kung fu. Hands down.

Just for the record, I don't do Kung Fu. :roll:
I have recently started training in Muay Thai though.
And I stand by my previous statement 100%, based on input from quite a few fighters and bouncers.

Hmm well not to say ive been in alot of street fights or anything. But I have had my fair share. I have jumped to gaurd a number of times with no problems. Plus you can always clinch and then get an easy sweep. FYI I have beat up a couple bouncers jumping to gaurd. A head bouncer attacked me at a show, I ended up jumping to gaurd and almost breaking his arm. From what I heard he had trouble with that arm for months. So I stand by my previous statement 100% as well.

I actually had tears in my eyes. Then I went to my comp and watched Matt Hughes V. BJ Penn over and over and over. Then I felt better.

I like Eugene a lot. It's pretty quiet and mellow for the most part and extremely veg & natural foods friendly.
