Re: Shihan vs Fighters

I'd love to see someone do a shionage in an MMA match up. Never seen it done...never been in the position to do it where it would even remotely work. Not saying it won't...just have never done it or experienced it working.

Gloves, like Don, i don't have an issue with them other than chokes maybe.

Gripping is not a problem in MMA because the way you grip typically with a thumbless grip, and control, does not require fine motor skills in which gloves would get in the way.

I do like palmless, as I like to feel the contract and grip with my palm.
