"To beat a grappler you gotta grapple".

You wont beat a grappler if they are better than you at it.

haha, come on, that's not true at all, you can counter grappling with alot more than just more grappling, I honestly think that's a little streatched truth, if you're both grappling when is anyone gonna win?

And in response to the original question. I believe that karate is not anti grapling, it doesn't teach it as much as other arts because it's not that kind of style, in my opinion.

Heike,

Have you ever sparred a grappler? Or sparred til submission? Once in grappling range it is necessary, in my opinion, to at least know some grappling so you can get more easily out of the situation.

Karate is what you make of it...it can contain grappling or not. Depends on how you train and what you want to achieve. But no grappling skills means getting trounced in that range if put there accidentally...or on purpose.

My point of view is that we have to be ready for everything and everyone, karate does not matter if you are weak, short, or any other desadvantage, because karate teaches us how to pass over limitations.
