comment How does a non-grappler train to be ready to avoid grappling in a real-world situation?
Maybe you should look into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and see what the mount position is and educate yourself.

Ok, think about this....what if the guy who has grappling skills decides to use eye gauging too? It's going to be a pretty bad day if someone has mount on you and is gauging your eyes out. But then again....as you said....you could "twist the nipple". I'll have to try that in the next competition I'm in.

A stupid comment by someone who has most likely never done grappling. This comment is stupid considering the words "twist his nipple" are included.

comment How important is lineage when it comes to credibility or trustworthiness?
Just because somebody comes from a certain lineage does not mean he is a good teacher or has certain skills. Lineage charts are pointless as they encourage people to believe that an instructor is a good one just because of his lineage. What about the guys who don't have this fancy lineage? Are they bad teachers? Are they lesser martial artists? It doesn't matter who you get taught by, what matter is the skills and methodology the instructor uses to teach. I've trained with people who came from fancy lineages and had really bad skills. Lineage does not matter.
