    I think would be pretty easy to demonstrate. Are there any examples of krav folks competing without additional training? I'm very interested!

    I'll just say again that winning or losing is a red herring. Look at Conor McGregor in the boxing match. He didn't win. But he held his own against an elite boxer. I see judoka periodically in local bjj tournaments, and they do okay. Depends on their level of training, but they learn where their hokes are, and some do really well. How would a ninja do? I think not well, even though it is also a grappling art.

    If a krav guy wanted to know how good he was at regaining his feet against competent grapplers, it's not rocket science, guys.

    True, should have included judoka.

    From my experience, wrestlers tend to do well against white belts, its when they start going against blue belts+ that they have issues. So in a white belt tournament they shouls be doing fairly decent.

    Well I didn't see him do one. Which is the point. Being good at hypothetical fights is always the excuse for being bad a real fights.

    Connor McGregor would take out a white belt BJJ competition though.

    I don't care that much. It was off the back of a statement I made that being the coolest kid in your class may not make you very good when compared to anyone else.

    And self defense may require you to fight someone who is not from your class.

    Then people rushed to defend krav by saying they can't grapple. And would do better in competitions they don't compete in.

    I haven't met any krav, competition guys. There is a decent karate school that competes.

    They even win white belt jits comps.

    You seem to care a lot because I know you’ve told that story ages ago and all the time you’re trashing other styles

    One of My Krav Maga instructoads actually won a bjj competition as a white belt years ago. Forgot all about it. I’m sure you’ll say I’m lying but 100% it happened

    So wait. All the things you just accused me of. You then went and did?

    And exelent work for him.

    Which back to the point of this tale is that competition is a training tool that lets you know how you are performing against people you don't know.

    Which is going to be important for self defense.
