    My Confession

    I practice Xing Y and Chen Taiji. I try to see all the possibilities of applications. BUT, when I see the BJJ folk, I see myself being able to handle myself fairly well while on two feet. Then if they happen to take me to the ground, it looks like it would be over fairly quickly for me.
    Mind you, I don't mind having expertise in BJJ, but I don't want to spend 4-6 hours a week with my face in another man's crotch or armpit. And then there is the Ringworm and Staff infection thing.

    Anyway, just thought I'd share.

    All my years in Judo and then the few years I spent in BJj and not ONE infection or anything.

    Yep because tai chi and bagua have proven themselves great stand-up arts.......anyway to your inane ramping post

    you see yourself being to handle yourself on your feet but getting beat on the ground...heres a novel idea instead of thinking go to a gym and actually find out, as for the anti *****sexual connotations in your mail grow up and get a life

    If you have skills, why not just develop your own techniques for ground fighting. Every system has something that can apply to the ground if you take it seriously. Japanese jiujitsu has everything you need for ground fighting, and most any system will have. You just need to look at it closely and determine what you can use there and how to apply it most effectively.

    The term is JAPANESE jujutsu.

    the use of racist terms is unacceptable in this day and age.

    Mouth Boxers have not the testicular nor the spinal fortitude to be known.
    Hence they hide rather than be known as adults.

    That scares you worse than knowing you're going to get the snot beaten out of you as soon as a fight goes tothe ground?
