Favourite technique is probably quite common, but the Triangle.

Most difficult to pull off on in competition would be the Clock choke (just for me obviously).

Favourite MMA fighter, why Rickson of course!!! :-D

My favorite submission is the key lock or reverse key lock because it's simple to execute from side control.
The hardest is my second favorite which is the facelock chicken wing. It is a hammer lock done from the backmount by locking the elbow under their forearm around to grip the hand of the other arm around their neck thus shoulder and neck cranking them at the same time.
My favorite fighter is Randy "the natural" Couture because he finds every last weakness an opponent has and beats the crap out of them with it everytime. He is well experienced, well rounded, holds the UFC light heavyweight belt, is an Olympic team and all American wrestler, competes in the Ecochallenges (well freakin conditioned), and the list goes on....

Genki Sudo is a crazy little Jap. I've never seen anyone turn their back on their opponent with a jig and then start doing the robot in the heat of battle. It was the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen a fighter do. The other guy just hesitated because it was so unexpected. He had to be kicking himself later on for not capitalizing on that.

why has tjj been buried SL ? is this due to bjj? if so is it worth studing tjj at all?:-D

Its a long but short story :-D. Basically its pants and i would no longer tell anyone to study it. The bad points off it.

1. Majority of Techniques taught from defending a right punch with a non resistive attacker. No good unless your beating up really drunk people.

2. The whole grading structure is geared around making money.

3. Kata , Weapon Kata is about as useful as a chocolate teapot.

4. TJJ strikes , dont even get me started

5. Sensai can i have a drink of water please. F*** him im 24 and can wipe my own arse!

6. Matt Ettiquite............ :-)):-))

Now BJJ.

1. Resistive attacker trying to choke the life out of you.

2. Grading structure you only get a belt when you deserve it not when you have saved up £25.

3. Kata :-)):-)) Nope!

4. No sensai (blackbelt with an ego... who is convinced TJJ will conquor all)

Basically its the best Martial Art (if anyone answers back ill set the chimp on them) alongside Muay Thai unless TJJ evolves i cant see it lasting the next 10 years.

Worth studying..... tricky one cos if i hadnt stumbled back to TJJ id never have gone to BJJ.. and TJJ got me out the house so can't complain if you cant find BJJ do some Judo.
