Tickle - Jitsu


Do you think anyone would ever try to tickle their opponent and use it as a strategy in MMA?

For instance when you are in the clinch, sometimes its tough to get the opponent down. You have the underhooks in but their centre of gravity is solid. What if someone were to tickle their opponent a little and then boom, go in for the takedown? It would look fruity as hell but if you are running out of options in the fight it just might work.

Or say you pull guard. The opponent is raining down punches from above and you are having trouble getting up. What if you put your knees in a rubber guard fashion, tickled and then got up in a move similar to what GSP called Hip Eyes. Where BJ uses his feet to push off the opponents knees.

Or would just the though of tickling another guy be so fruity that even though its perfectly legal (i think) it would be frowned upon by fans and sponsors?

I think im on to something. Or ive completely lost it and need to see a psychiatrist.


 





















THE END

TheClips - Wow, how much time did THAT take???

 not too long actually. The people in that picture are from bodybuilding.com i think it was. They were teaching how to do mma moves.

I just moved their arms around to make it seem like they were getting tickled. Nothing too major. hehe.

The opinion I formed of this thread solely from reading the title has been completely reversed by its content. Good work.

I created a thread a few years ago about the under-utilized "natural" childhood submissions like the noogie, snuggie, indian burn, titty twister, pinching, and of course, tickling. It failed :(

The world wasnt ready for your maneuvers a few years ago.

Now's your time to shine! Tell us about this revolution.

I dont think you are allowed to pinch. Im afraid that will take out the titty twister plan you had. =(

 I actually had a casual fan friend ask me before if tickling would be legal in MMA.
