    A lot of BJJ type techniques in there. It's quite obvious though this guy hasn't just learned an arm-bar or Kimura and tried to integrate it into a routine or something.
    I've found one of the things that makes BJJ so effective in the first place is that your natural response to some of the holds, submission attempts, etc just makes the situation worse e.g. in guard, you try to push your self up using your arm - you get caught in a triangle or arm-bar. in a mounted position you try to push somebody off you, again - arm-bar!

    I believe what's known as Kenpo 5.0 has tried to incorporate some of these techniques as well.

    I wonder if when Bruce (Lee) talked about being like a glass of water, he meant the style as much as the practitioner - you know the first 10 or so UFCs were all won by BJJ or Wrestler, simply because other styles at the time did not know how to deal with being on the ground, you look at a UFC fight today however and it will be mostly fought standing up and both fighters are either competent wrestlers or BJJ practitioners, and so the style of fighting has evolved as well.

    Anyway, I've had few pints after training tonight, I am rambling a bit now! lol I seem to be in "what if..." mode :D
