GSPs style is opposite of what self defense training should be....
sorry but everything gsp does is oposite what people should street train in self defense training
a street fight lasts seconds and you need to be able to finish the oponent fast in any way needed gsp just lays on him and plays the point game never going for a finish
you want to avoid grappling in all street fights as there can be more than one oponent and they could have a knife or weapon also it takes too long to finish a fight with grappling compared to a good strike
gsp and many other ufc cagefighters fight this way and it is a tragedy if people grow up watching it they forget what matters in a real fight
the cage is a playground the streets is are was were should could would sure beat reality
