Ground & Pound Invented by MMA - NOT!!!

Post  Nick Hughes on Mon Feb 14, 2011 10:01 pm

I've had plenty of young MMA mates try and tell me they invented Ground and Pound...

Then time machines must exist because this is a pic of me I dug up from the early eighties and I do believe I'm pummeling the shite out of one of my brown belts.

Hmmmm

You must be wrong. As we all know MMA invented everything.

Funny how MMA is now a style and not what it stands for.

There are some complete twats around the MMA scene. They "invented" ground and pound? Yeah right.

I remember play fighting with my brother during the 80's also, getting into a mount position and pretending to belt the crap out of each other.


But then anything martial arts or fighting orientated didn't exist pre UFC1 anyway.

Yes mate...it's the same with the attitude of some of the trainers out there nowadays. If you believe what they're implying nobody but them has a clue how to fight, or teach people to fight. Makes me wonder how we all managed prior to God gracing us with their presence on the planet. Very Happy

Obviously we were all really really really lucky and we're so fortunate now to live in the enlightened era of MMA.

I don't mean to sound too negative as I do like MMA....I just don't like a lot of the fools, sycophants, and ignorant comments made by nuthuggers with 6 months training under their belt.

I think anyone who's done a reasonable amount of fighting in the street has been either in the mount or fighting someone in it.

There is nothing new under the sun.

I used to train with a guy who would constantly tell me how no one knew how to fight or teach martial arts.

I have to thank that man now because of his unbridled arrogance he really taught me to take all martial arts claims very well salted. Case in point here Smile

Very true Jagunco, but it was also a ridiculous comment as well.

Whoops I just re read what I wrote there and I didn't write it well. I mean I take all martial arts claims well salted because the bloke I'm referring to is full of shit not because he was right Smile
