comment Is it true that most fights end on the ground? What is the evidence?
@DaveLiepmann Still though, while looking at MMA fights alone is a problem, the fact that frequency of going to the ground in an MMA fight is consistent with frequency of going to the ground in a street fight/assault is still quite telling. A lot of fights between untrained opponents hit the ground, again with 'most' being 51% or more, most fights do go to the ground.

I disagree about using MMA results being misguided. You can look at what happens when fighter A wants to keep the fight standing and fighter B wants to take the fight to the ground (fighter B gets his wish, absent strong wrestling skills for fighter A). You also see what happens when both fighters have a standup skill set and wish to (ostensibly) keep the fight standing. The moment it goes south for one of them, they take the fight to the ground so they can win.

comment What's the best way to stop a nose bleed quickly?
Shut up is probably the most important part, whenever I try to give the advice nicely they always mess it up.

As a ref I'm always frustrated by the short blood time. It's never quite enough, so the bleeding almost always starts again. Not sure how many people will be willing to try the tampon method though.

comment How should my 8-year-old defend against a leg trip (kosotogake) in BJJ?
Possible, although I'm also leaning towards underhooks not being as effective against taller people because you can't force their arms up, so if the guy has 4"-6" of height on you, the double underhooks won't really kill his ability to trip you.

I was going to suggest double underhooks as well, but then it occurred to me that I fold people who have double underhooks on me almost as easily as if I have them in. I think hip distance is much more important, and I find that easier to maintain with overhooks.

comment What are some options for escaping full mount in BJJ?
That scenario Aesopian presents is only true if your instructor has a haphazard teaching style. If you have a good idea of what will be taught next, or there's a coherent theme to what's being taught over 1-2 weeks, you can study video instructionals and books covering the same material, but explained in a different way. If your instructor sucks at explaining things, this can be particularly useful, as ultimately the biggest benefit of attending class is having resisting partners to train with.

@DaveLiepmann It's a sloppy kosotogari/kosotogake, with the goal to go straight to full mount.

comment Is the Olympic sport of Tae Kwon Do uniquely Tae Kwon Do like?
They could, but Greco-Roman Wrestling is already on the chopping block due to similarity to Freestyle, I doubt they'd add another one in when they're considering taking one out.
