Gives a false sense of security or confidence to lower belts, Purple and under lets say.
I feel like many sport bjj guys are so quick to pull guard, never start with strikes, avoid wrestling etc that all of this changes the game.
Im asking because some friends and I were talking and they (blue and purple respectively) were so confident they would win in a street fight against most random people...
I know its a very silly conversation to have but they’re both smaller-ish maybe 5’7”-5’9” and 170-175 max. But by nature they aren’t very aggressive or tough people, and I personally know their takedowns are terrible.
With that said, I just feel like someday someone is going to have a rude awakening and possibly end up getting really hurt thinking they can handle themselves when they really can’t.
