The lack of ground skills I understand, the striking I do not. How hard is it to keep your hands up and throw proper punches? Being at least a little bit tight and controlled isn't that hard is it? I mean if you even watch boxing or any sport with striking in it youi should now the basics of how a punch is thrown, yet they always seem to end up throwing arm punches wildly with their other hand swinging at their hips. They at least tried to wrestle a little bit and pull guard and shit, the "striking" made me want to cry.
Me and my friend used to do shit like this before it was cool. Without a crowd and the gay tapout gloves mind.
