To my experience, anyone who is serious about learning and using that stuff can do so in about 8 months. That doesn't mean they can go and KO Hari or Schilt, it means that they would easily out strike your average Joe on the street or a beginner.

Same idea with advanced, I don't mean take on K1 level kickboxers but rather I mean easily take out a person who has about 8 months of training and has the basic principles down.

For grappling, when I say advanced I mean black belt, which on average takes about 10 years.

And honestly for me, I spar with guys who have competed nationally, and although its clear I'm worse, it's not to the same degree a brown belt whips my ass when we roll.
I guess we're gonna have to just be in disagreement. Maybe we have different definitions of "versed" or just think totally different, either way...it was nice discussing with yah.
