We got to meet Grant Neal when they did wrestling day back in Jan.

Nice! If your kid does wrestling and you get the chance take a mike krauss seminar. Youtibe him. Hes worth watching even if you dont have a kid.


Jits has lacked the takedowns for years. Competitions have turned into leg lock scisscor banging. There is a trend away from it and wrestling is providing that to many.

Well that's a whole deeper issue. It's hard to slam the weight of being born into an unjust socio-economic class system onto kids every day of their lives - and then tell them that they're in trouble because THEY are being mean.


What I am getting at is street smart urban working class kid are going to settle shit themselves.

Only in higher socio economic classes where shit is softer does “mediation” or “peer mediation” have a chance.

Thanks for the advice. We all have tall but thin frames so wrestling is essential.

In Russia, lots of kids do Sambo, which is a old Soviet grappling discipline that has lots of throws, twists, bars, etc

I done it for a bit too, back in Moscow. Learned striking from Thai kickboxing and grappling from Sambo :D

Yeah it's very tough to stop a wrestler/grappler who knows their stuff. It's power and logic behind technique - which is very effective.


Its hard to stop the takedown, but on the ground outside of wrestling rules they are easy, until they get good then they are beasts.
