Kieran, when you say freestyle, are you talking Pro/Semi Pro NHB? Cos I don't think Andy would be looking for much less.

I don't think that's an offer Andy could refuse.

Just think we need to get something organised asap.

Andy, what's your thoughts?

Hang I reading this right? BJJ against pressure points? I think we need some rules defining, or it could be a bit one-sided.

Also, where is this Kieran based? I'm guessing America, so I can't see this whole thing happening. It'd be interesting if it did though.

Let me guess this right

Pressure point fighting against BJJ - Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease

As much as I admire any Martial Artist and what they have achieved from Karate to Judo I can not see pressure point working against a skilled BJJ fighter in a one on one fight.

As I would see it (and not that I know) the concentration alone in just defending yourself from avoiding locks / chokes / armbars will allow no time at all for finding pressure points let alone getting these on.

BJJ fighters do not stay still - constantly working to achive there goal.

Sorry I see this as a no contest.

If this goes the MMA / Vale Tudo route where strikes are allowed then there is no chance pressure points are going to work.

This is just my view but can't some how see BJJ losing

I know the Gracie family were originally from Scotland but was it Edinburgh? That might explain the constant 'eh', eh? BTW, what does 'puto' mean?

Interesting, thanks a lot. Next question, what did the puto do the first time that means he gets his neck broken the next time (and why is he hanging around with so many putos?)

Haven't entered the melee for some time but could not resist this one.

Nerve / pressure points = places to apply pressure (strike or compression) to cause pain or interruption to normal bodily function...errr....punch to anywhere nerve runs over bone or tissue...say jaw, kick to similar...say shin, hip or b*llocks, strangulation (kata gatame) affecting vagal (sp?) nerve, joint lock of any sort...say armbar, poke in eye...nip of skin..., etc,etc...

Basically any sort of attack which hurts is a 'nerve attack' and for what its worth I agree that with Andy (not for the first time) that any of this so called targetted accupressure stuff delivered against a resistive opponent (as during a sparring session) is unlikely to be able to acheive, or have any significant immediate influence on the situation.

Maybe a strike to 'gall bladder 3' may cause the opponent to p*ss sideways for the next 10 years, who knows?:-O
