    I had a chance to study jeet kun do and have been doing it every since. after 20 yrs of goju-ryu it was a big change for me. If your a nut about MA the way i am u have to check it out. it takes a lot of the unnecessary movement out of hand to hand combat and focuses on the way the human body moves and reacts. It takes the best of all styles and puts them to use where they are needed most. and ya got to love the phillipino knife and stick fighting that it emplies.

    I know SBG's vary, how much grappling/BJJ does your place incorporate?

    Not much grappling, I know how to grapple but i would much rather take care of it sooner. If u get tied up with a larger opponent u better be excellent at it. we also cover more of an attack on the street not so much in the ring. grappling is just a small part of it. a good fight will only last a min. or 2!

    Grappling is a huge part of it, not a small part. Even Dan Inosanto is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu jitsu showing you that even he, knows and respects the ground game. And fights aren't always "good fights" and can go both ways where they can end really quick or it could be you getting your ass beat for 10 minutes straight.
