For a art that ridicules most others, and were most of its practitioners are worse then Jehovah's witnesses with regard to its near perfection for self defense i find this thread ironic. If you dont want slammed dont jump on my body, simple as that. If bjj is going to continue to use ridiculous techniques like guard jumping and then not allow a valid takedown counter to it then stop proselytizing to everyone about your combat awesomeness. Why should the person who is now supporting two body weights be forced to have full responsibility for the safety of the fool that jumped on his body? If someone guard jumps me on the the street why wouldn't i slam him? Why on earth would i ever bother with nicer guard passes in that situation? Why is it being taught to kids who cant break fall, and yes you can break fall from a fall like that, i have and im a grappling newb..... Simple problem has simple solution. Dont want to get slammed? Dont be a guard jumper. Dont want slamming? Ban guard jumping... It only works in bjj comps, it has no place in martial arts out side bjj comps and is useless for mma and for self defense. Also why does guard jumping look alot like a move i saw in BBT?
