    Depends on what you consider aggressive. You can train elements that are perceived as aggression and still produce functional people.

    And that ten percent may not be developing theirs so it increases your odds somewhat in a street fight.

    My wife trained BJJ, she was 126 pounds.
    Fortunately nobody told her she couldn’t beat men twice her size.

    True, she’s an evil, aggressive woman, but still.

    We have a BJJ black belt who also happens to be a 120 pound girl.

    I'm a blue belt man that weighs 200 pounds.

    I can sometimes stalemate her, but she armbars and chokes the hell out of me on the regs.

    BJJ is for real.

    I never said anything about them being magical. You're projecting what you want me to say, again.

    If aggression is part of training then why can't we account for it?

    During normal classes, folks won’t typically (hopefully) experience the sheer animal aggression of an attack. That was my whole point.

    I'm of the opinion that in order to deal with aggression you have to have experienced it first, both receiving and giving. It's like getting punched hard in the face - the first time that happens to a Martial Artist should not be in a real world fight.

    Chinese wrestling is a style that emphasizes on aggression. You act like a tiger and trying to eat your opponent alive.

    The difference is you don't wait for opportunity. You create opportunity, attack, attack, and still attack.

    I've never had one go all-out on me. I've had them do some stupid stuff, even get more aggressive than necessary, but never had one just lose their mind that way. Probably any who headed in that direction got put with some senior student who could control them.

    Yeah. I'm still working on how to get more of it into training from time to time, for folks not interested in competition (where it would be easier to find, I think).

    That's good aggression, but not the "animal aggression" I was speaking of.
