    Nobody uses them when rolling any more. What I mean by ghetto moves is the simple ones. Everybody want to do the newest flashy guard pass. Today I was just loving when somebody had me mounted and would go for a armbar, I did the good old push on his stomach and sit up. Best armbar defence in the world if you ask me.

    Go back to the ghetto moves people.

    When someone good sets up their moves properly, you will not be able to escape simply by trying to out muscle them (which is what "ghetto moves" sounds like to me).

    What I consider ghetto moves are the ones I don't use much on guys in training unless I don't like them b/c they are being a spaz.

    some of them include the russian neck crank from the back, the reverse wristlock, muscular gouging with my chin, the side control neck crank, crossface/face frake takedowns....shit like that.

    I agree that simple is better, especially for mma.

    i agree with gnp

    i consider ghetto moves as neck cranks and just dirty tactics in general, elbows in eye, pulling your head into their knee etc

    from the way the thread creator describes ghetto moves, I don't think he is talking about neck cranks.

    what makes one technique dirty and another not?

    Isn't it all good in an attempt to win a fight?

    if you're training and someone is pressing down with the sharp end of their elbow and not intending to choke i consider than dirty.

    Kind of like the people who pass guard and make sure that they crush your balls in the process :madfawk:

    That shit pisses me off. I make sure to use my elbows and chin for just about every move from that point on with those guys.

    I guess a dirty technique would be something that is intended to unnecessarily hurt the opponent. One example would be the "can opener" move from within someones guard. It is when the top person just grabs the bottom person's head with both of his hands and starts pulling upwards. It doesn't submit the guy on bottom, but sure makes him uncomfortable and is also painful. I am not against moves like these, as they are all part of the game, but I would prefer to use less energy and use more efficient moves.

    Just stuff you shouldn't do in training like neck cranks. The point is to work on your technique, not to cause unneccessary discomfort. In a match it's fair game.

    how did someone can opener you, youre like 600 lbs

    can opener doesnt really work ever again once you learn the defense, unless someone is like five times stronger than you or something

    uhh he was standing in my guard and i reach through to grab his legs and pulled at the same time he cranked. i had nothing to push off against and I couldn't break guard b/c it happened too fast. The guy who did it was a strong heavyweight who has fought about 6 times in mma. :dunno:

    ive never been successfully had anyone do the can opener on me.. im sure itll happen someday though. theres just too much defense to it. ive only seen it once or twice in mma
