    There was this guy with a bit of an attitude recently. So naturally, I took him down. It was ridiculously easy. I used a foot sweep without putting much effort into it, and was quite surprised it actually worked.

    Unimaginably easy... If you've ever done this before then you'll know what I'm talking about. Who's tried it? :icon_conf

    No, I usually spend my time using my training on beating up children and bragging about that.

    Probably, but I'm willing to bet that's another thread.

    Get this, bros, beginners are mostly expecting you to dominate them, but to do it in a technical manner so as not to be rude.

    Grappling is a lot about having "sense" of where your body weight is and how it's distributed. Untrained people don't know where to place their hands nor hips in a grappling situation.

    To illustrate, Olympic caliber athletes look at recreational players the same way. That is the discrepancy in skill.

    try taking down somone who is 6 ft 8 600 pounds with tons of fat. That would be extremely hard (regardless if they have grappling exp. or not).

    Taking down really big guys isn't very hard, as long as you get them moving first.

    If you place a Big Mac just outside of arm's reach on either side of him, the sporadic and instant shifting of weight would cause his knees to give out and allow him to fall to the floor, more often than not.

    I've heard kickboxers are real easy to take down.
