    Notice you have no argument and just crying. You're even too stupid to realize that Bruce Lee was this exact "neanderthal" that you're crying about. Stay in school, baby girl.

    So basically, in all of Bruce Lee's incredible wisdom, he discovered that the weakness to striking arts such as Muay Thai is getting grappled to the ground.....and that the weakness to grappling arts such as Judo...is getting punched in the face. So yea, let's take Bruce Lee's incredible knowledge and enter a Judo match to punch the other guy in the face....I win. Or let's go to a Muay Thai gym and just wrestle the shit out of everyone there....with each time they break it up and tells you to stop, you just say..."ok, I won't do it again"....but keep doing it until they kick you out.

    And oh yea......and poking dudes in the eyeballs or grabbing their nutsacks and squeezing them really hard....works really, really, really well when you show up to a competition match among unknowing, sportsmanlike competitors and do these illegal moves by, SURPRISE!

    Man, WTF....? You need to read a book about this to know that it's true (or can be true)? What next, cracking someone over the head with a brick while they're not looking, works?

    So what's your experience or background on martial arts? Do you actually train and fight? What do you do?

    I mostly agree with your basic position but in Bruce Lee's defense, he wasn't talking about combat in a sports scenario.

    That said, if he thought striking was a grappler's weakness, he should've tried fighting a real wrestler, a judoka or the holy grail....a bjj artist.

    Or he could've tried "grappling" a Thai Boxer in an open challenge and see how that worked out.
    A lot harder than it sounds and definitely past his limited grappling ability.
