Yeah, not to mention the guard, out of which 80% of BJJ submissions are launched, is a ridiculously unrealistic and useless position in a streetfight. I mean seriously, you're lying spread-eagled on your back with your package wide open, and your eyes, hair, and throat, a guy in a street fight isn't gonna be nice and play around trying to pass your guard, he's gonna crush your vitals.
IMO the only part of BJJ that's useful for a street fight is the mount or back control for chokes and punches. The guard might come in handy for women who get attacked by rapists or something whose goal is not to beat the chick but uh .. you know. In that case they could probably sink something in, but not in a regular streetfight.
