Muay Thai would be the safer bet.
Interesting fight theory. However, we have multiple examples of WC fighters being unable to apply that theory when strikes are raining down on them.
The headlock is actually easier to counter than the hip throw. It's one of the first counter moves a white belt learns in Bjj, and it's probably...
Okay, so then what are you saying?
You're saying that a practitioner of BJJ won't be able to perform to the art's strengths because they won't last long enough to get good at it.
So BJJ is less effective because (in your mind) 90% of females entering BJJ can't handle the training?
Yeah, that makes sense..... :rolleyes:
You can still get choked after a failed hip throw while standing. I call it the spider monkey because some a-hole jumps on your back and makes...
Fight logic would also dictate if there's a massive hole in what you're doing, you need to fill the hole or your ship is going to sink.
Good points, but you also have this going on;
Which is a complete and utter denial of reality. The best being that strikers...
It appears that WC wants to be viewed as an effective martial art, but boxing, Muay Thai, and MMA has pretty much prevented that from happening....
Hmmmm, that's a real shame.
That's Shaio Jiao (sp?), not Judo.
Btw, any groundfighting in SJ?
Do they go for back takes in Judo stand up?
Based on @Martial D's definition, I dont think that's the case. I think its more along the line of what happened to Sharrif Bey, the Hung Ga...
Re-read post #22. I said that you don't see them much. I never said that you don't see them at all.
I thought he was talking about the OP.
I misunderstood what you meant then. My mistake.
You said "various", not one or two hip throws thrown in the entire match.
Care to provide some examples? I've never seen it happen.
Do you know of any black belt judokas competing (and winning) in elite Bjj tournaments?
No throw is foolproof, no matter how competent you are.
In fact, in my school we were taught to avoid hip throws entirely because they can leave...
I have to ask, what is a "Display Style"?
Of course they were. The only people who would deny this are Gracie-worshippers.
That said, I can't say that them doing that was nefarious in...
I'm forced to agree with this overall assessment. The interesting thing is that fighters who specialize in Bjj and were elite level in sport Bjj...
She'd be able to fight off an average sized male if she trained in Bjj. :p
It does to some, because they think that using the gi would mean that Royce cheated even though it was allowed.
No argument there. However, the woman was specifically trying to decide between. a Bjj or an Aikido school.
Yeah, I never said that.
I also never said that practicing Aikido would be "useless" for a woman seeking self defense.
Doesn't that completely...
Unfortunately it's very hard to practice Judo holistically because a lot of dojos don't want their students getting "bad habits" that won't help...
Agreed, which is sadly why a lot of women don't stick with Bjj very long. Not only do they have to deal with big hairy sweaty men on top of them,...
