After we have been contacted by one individual and looked at Benya's threats, the initial feeling was of utter disgust, to the point that one has an urge to vomit, so sick and perverted the whole thing seemed to us at the time. The feeling was: why should we even bother with all these schemes and look at all this complicated mess and manipulations while people are simply asleep? Why should we even argue about the authors? We either carry them or we don't. We have never argued with any author, at least about the issues of publication. This, by itself, looks like something on the par with insane.
Upholding the premise that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are mitigated when grappling on the ground, Brazilian jiu-jitsu emphasizes getting an opponent to the ground in order to use ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint-locks and chokeholds . A more precise way of describing this would be to say that on the ground, physical strength can be offset or enhanced by an experienced grappler who knows how to maximize force using mechanical advantage instead of pure physical strength.
