    It's called Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (Royce Gracie-style) eating up a kung fu fighter. lol. :)

    Is that really Jason De Lucia? I know De Lucia got destroyed by Gracie in one of the early UFC battles.

    The structure of organized fighting (UFC, Pride, etc.) greatly increases the effectiveness of ground fighting. Not that ground fighting isn't effective, but a lot of the techniques that they use would either take too long or be less effective in a no holds bar type of fight.

    If someone takes me to the ground, I'm going to a). claw their eyes out b). bite a chunk of flesh off c). hit groin d). small joint manipulation e). grab flesh and rip...etc. Many martial arts avoid ground fighting, not because they view it as ineffective, but because it's unpredictable and exposes a lot of possible weaknesses to the opponent.

    Organized fighting eliminates all the weaknesses of ground fighting (by making rules preventing such actions). Thus, you see a lot of ground based fighters dominating the sport. Plus, ground based fighting is limited to one on one combat. Fighting more than one person at a time is near to impossible (if all combatants are trained) for ground based fighters.

    So, I'm not saying ground based fighting is not effective, but if you try it in real life, you might be surprised. That being said, most people are not trained in any type of fighting, so any training gives you a good advantage over most people.

    Here is more yan_yao

    I dont want take anything away from kung fu but a good friend of mine is a 3rd degree black belt and runs a couple martial arts school in the northside of houston i train with him and sparred with with him for his upcoming tournament over 2 yrs ago its cool and all but not my thing eventually i volunteer to fight him and his stepfather who has 13 yrs experience of kung fu and some other blackbelt on the same night becuase i was running my mouth about them not being able to use their kung fu skills in the heat of the moment in a fight. Long story short i could hang with them going toe to toe and i only had boxing experience before. Now someone like gracie would cuase a lot of promblem to all fighters.

    The most creative fighter I've seen is Sakuraba. He is the guy that beat 4 of the Gracies in Pride and broke Royler's(I think) arm. The guy was unpredictable and very skilled. He only loss to guys that physically dominated him like Vanderlei Silva.

    All good points which I (a casual observer) didn't realize, but of course seems obivous now that you mention it.

    I once smashed an empty can of Pepsi on this mean kid's head. It was during lunchtime, and everyone said "Ooh." I then continued finishing my curly fries.

    It's definitely not muay thai, the stance and hands and techniques are all wrong.

    It was some variant of TKD/Kung Fu/Karate he was doing.

    Needless to say, on the night when I ROCKED THE KAS13AH outside of Live after the Rockets viewing party, there were plenty of arts on display.

    Karate IS NOT Kung Fu. It is a martial art, but not Kung Fu (known as Wu Shu)

    And there are so many different types of Kung Fu you won't believe how different they are.
