Did you actually read what I wrote?
Note. I never said BJJ is ineffective. Nor did I say boxing or some striking art is better than BJJ.
Rather, I said that this fight is completely unrepresentative of anything outside of BJJ, which is obvious, and that in a genuine, no-holds barred fight the marine would have wiped the floor.
Outside of actual black belts (who will likely have the following qualities) or people who are otherwise technically skilled and VERY fast, every person that I've grappled with always left themselves open to strikes. Strikes that you cannot legally do in either BJJ or judo.
The same is true for the matches that I've seen on youtube and such. You simply don't bother training to deal with something that you know will not come your way.
Show me. While this is obviously unrepresentative, every BJJ matches I've seen and experienced had people so bloody eager to go onto the ground where they can actually show what they've learned that they didn't seem to care at all how they got onto the ground, as long as they were in the dominant position.
That is not utilizing distance and control.
