I think everyone drew the line at spider guard and spider lasso. It used to be considered “dirty jiu jitsu” but it was generally accepted because it still held a level of realistic integrity.
Then you had Keenan come out and show this worm guard and reverse de-la worm guard and ever since then I’m having people go threw the process of literally untying my Gi from my belt wrapping the bottom part of my Gi around my leg and their leg entangling us both. It’s just gotten absolutely ridiculous. The only time that’s ever relevant is if I’m wearing a long 1940’s jacket that drapes down to my hips thats unbuttoned.
I’m the type of guy who enjoys all parts of BJJ. I’m okay with getting bermboloed because it works and is smooth and efficient and could happen in a self defence situation. But getting wrapped up like this just feels so fucking stupid. If you’re allowed to undo my Gi to wrap yourself and myself up in it - I should be allowed to just take the fucking thing off while I’m in this stupid guard!
