Javi showed me a techniqal way to use structure to rape choke from mount lol.....
Or, like me when I regularly trained both, you'll wake up in the mornings unable to use your hands.

i personally love sport bjj and hate when my coach makes us do self defense techniques. but thats just me. im way too small to have any sort of success in an actual fight with regular sized people, so self defense instruction doesnt seem worth it to me.
i can hang pretty damn well sparring with guys twice my size in a bjj setting though. thats probably the best im gonna get, and its fun for me.
People tend to relate SD bjj with bear hugs and stufff... For me, SD bjj is when punches are allowed. I train mma and bjj, initially because in bjj we didn't roll with punches. In my mind, if you don't train with striking allowed, you are not training bjj, at least not the bjj that initially attracted 99% of us. I would really like a separation of both styles Combat BJJ and Sport BJJ, so I don't have any relation with that double guard pulling and worm guard stuff going on nowadays...
something like this?
You can train sport BJJ most of the time because the attributes and techniques you develop for the sport are for the most part going to work fine in a real fight, but you have to roll with punches at least some of the time so that you do understand the differences. I didn't have a lot of trouble getting decent at BJJ with punches when I first started doing it having only done a lot of sport, but it did take a few sessions to get a feel for the differences.
