damn stop puttting BJJ so high. It's all about the rules. If there wasnt any, pull guard on me and i will knee your balls.
And as for what you see on youtube, that's not kung-fu, thats a phony who waste his life thinking he was doing something he wasnt.
This is not an excuse, but simple facts.
MMA was made for BJJ, at least the UFC was made for it.
The reason why it was so succesful was that at least 90% of martial artists, no matter what they were training, did not know what the hell was jiu-jitsu. And even after learning it's basics, they would try to fight their game by pounding on the ground, while you never see a BJJ fighting standing up.
As for Kung-fu, its pretty simple, it has never adapted itself for the today's people, and for today's fighting. It's practionners also.
Look at GSP for instance. He was a KyoKushin(sorry for the spelling) fighter(black belt?), yet he doesnt have any karate fighting pose, or it's punching or anything. At some point, striking is striking, no matter what style you practice.
Muay Thai has changed as well for MMA, and yet people call it Muay Thai still because it is sucessful. I wonder if Kung-fu ever will, but i dont beleive there has been that many fighters from kung-fu background in MMA.. a remember 1 at UFC 1, and a few others..but very few others, esp any that have mixed it with something else.
Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.
