    haha biting yourself, what your like lol.

    i wouldnt have bothered. just because he was marked up and you werent doesnt mean it wasnt self defence. you can hit him first, then again and again and again and he never lay a finger on you and it can still be self defence if you claim you felt you was in danger and he just kept coming at you and wouldnt stop. as long as you dont mount him and elbow smash him in the face a dozen times though

But BJJ teaches far more options for controlling someone while tying up their limbs, so I think it's the best option in this respect, but others will defo work.

    For anyone who wants to be able to stop a fight as quickly as possible (without striking), I'd say judo is the best. Hit an ippon throw on someone onto concrete and the fight is most likely over. I know a very good judo guy and he's told me some of his street fight stories... brutal.
    an old friend and training partner used to be number 2 in judo in australia. on a night out once we got in an altercation with a large group, the biggest of the group - about 100kgs - offering said friend out, all 5ft 3 and 60kgs of him. my mate instantly picked him up above head level and dropped him vertically on his head. it wasn't pretty. me and him have had a few near-moments, as you do sometimes with mates when drink is involved, and a few times it's resulted in me being swept or launched over his shoulder.
    Great skill to have in a street fight.

    90% of doorwork is presence. However, the remaining 10% is a definite requirement. Its true though at 17st I had no trouble as people were intimidated. However, 13.5st my proper fight weight I was 50 times more effective but had to deal with 50 times more aggravation as people would try their luck. Basic greco and its points of control is perfect for door work.

    Remember chatting to Chris Jenkins about how he used to a Judo throw to stop a mugger a few years back. Last thing you want is someone of his strength and build putting hands on you. Shame he doesnt post here any more, knowledgable chap to have around with the ol' S&C.

    I just use what I've learnt to try and pass guard on the mrs first thing in the morning. Usually met with a 'what the fuck are you doing?'

    Thanks to BJJ, and the strenghtening effect it has had on my grip, since I started training I havent encountered a jar lid I couldn't manage with ease.

    I was out with my mate one night and just as we were leaving the club, one bouncer grabbed my mate for no apparent reason. My mate then put the bouncer in a standing arm scissor choke and almost put him to sleep.
