    How come they do not do this stuff in the UFC? Usually, folks get beat up in their guard in the UFC. I think, the fighters in the UFC have bad jiu jitsu teachers!

    @Charles F. Because it all comes down to training method. Most gyms entertain “sport BJJ” training methods. I don’t necessarily think it’s because of “bad teachers”, but because of they way they train. Many world class tournament BJJ players have failed miserably in MMA (Marcelo Garcia, Andre Galvao, Roger Gracie, to name a few). Personally, this is why I believe self-defense should be at least 50% of a schools curriculum if not the sole focus of training to purple belt. However, many people are more concerned with earning tournament medals instead of self-defense. On the bright side, you’ve taken the “red pill” and joined this online club!
