Thank you Ivan. I must say that in alot of styles I question how a particular move may be worth using, or I may think to myself how stupid I think it is, but fact is, I haven't mastered any style and neither am I a beginner as I have studied quite a few styles, but every street situation is different requiring different applications. For someone to say that a particular style is useless is absurd. On the ground, I can guarantee that I can hold my own. Some schools don't pay as much attention to groundwork as others, but some do, I assure you. As for throws, I would absolutey hate to be the idiot messing with a judoka and not realize it. One throw to the asphalt and we're talking potential knock out or other serious injury. I may not like some styles, but you will never hear me knocking them because as sure as I do, one of those moves that I think are stupid, will be the one to get me.

I train mostly in Japanese Jujitsu, ive done some karate and kickboxing as well.
The only time ive used jj on the street I was grabbed outside a pub and tried an O-goshi which didnt work. Then used a technique that I can only describe as an Ushiro-goshi that put him down and knocked the wind out of him.[/QUOTE]
