I concur. TK is a specialist when it comes to utilizing his combat expertise.
Saw that coming.
He should open his own dojo. How many applicants you think he'll have.
1. BJJ doesn't prepare you for that. If you train BJJ somewhere where you're getting hit in the face when you're rolling then get your money back.
2. Every martial art prepares you for that? No.
3. I've seen a few top notch MMA guys get their ass beat by someone with no prior MMA experience or any martial art at that. Didn't Don Frye get beat down in a hotel lobby? Ever heard Nick Diaz talk about getting his ass beat? And please no one say "they aren't top notch guys." They were/are professional fighters and that's what this discussion is about. All I'm merely saying is that fighting in the octagon and on the street IS two different things. If you put me in a triangle, who is to say I won't just bite off your balls? That kinda thing.
4. No, I'm not lying or trolling or anything. I simply asked a question but alot of people like to look tough on the forum by "calling people out" like that. Either way, I don't train on a full time basis but yeah I train and have had a couple of amateur fights (5 to be exact).
These topics are always fun. We've all been involved in little skirmishes.
I'm sure you have as well. A pro fighter doesn't mean he can win 100% of the times, simply means he has a higher chance of winning and or survival based from his cage/Octagon experience. Look up Rickson Gracie, Roger Huerta, Overeem, Bas, Chuck Liddell, War Machine, and Faber + TUF alumni crazy dude who both survived movie style rumbles in Bali and Thailand respectively.
Martial arts is about respect and discipline. Try out a class and you'll gain a whole new perspective.
