Article I am talking about http://www.iainabernethy.co.uk/article/karate-grappling-did-it-really-exist
I have to say I agree with all Iain observations. The artical is also very direct and easy for me to understand, that also helps. Has a lot of good references that I can check out myself.
I have had this discussion with many students of mine and still cant answer it. At least I think I am not able to answer it. If Karate Grappling is only able to deal with unskilled agressers and MMA grappling is able to deal with all agressers. Why not just train MMA and throw away the Karate system all together? It's a good point. Even for myself. I can't answer it. I say there is more to a fight then just grappling, and that I believe but I still can't answer the basic question.
What's your take on it?
