    there have been a ton of threads on this...please dont start another flame war of guys who think that street fights are a good place to show off their grappling skills vs. guys who think street fights are inherently dangerous and stupid.

    I'm just waiting for the obligatory video post of two drunk guys fighting. The poster will then point out the amazing display of JJ and its efficacy in self-defense/street scenarios because one drunk guy managed to get the other drunk guy to the ground...

    Well BJJ is extremely effective for drunk wrestling. I submitted 5 of my frat brothers in less then 30 seconds combined when we were all hammered.

    Then we had gay sex

    I took some guy down and pounded him from mount at a party.

    Well not really "pounded," I simply mounted him and let him squirm until he ran out of juice (which was very quick), and then I threw a couple of quick ones before it got broken up.

    Well I don't get in street fights, at least I haven't yet and it would be very unlikely. But it really sucks when you feel like you need to use BJJ at home. I just hope it doesn't happen again...

    I've used it for fun and giggles to choke out a fellow bouncer when I was working the door at a student's pub.
