What's your 2-3 favourite stand up grappling/clinch techniques in Karate?
Reason I ask is that after 14 years of Karate/Kickboxing type stuff I've recently started cross training in BJJ and it's been a great experience so far.
What I am interested though is understanding stand up grappling/clinch techniques from Karate I can use directly at the start of a BJJ rolling/sparring before we end up rolling about on the ground, so the first 3-4 seconds that I'm in touching distance of my opponent, and starting to move hand/arms in a semi clinch/clinch
I think the obvious response is that most of the Karate bunkai we have is limb control and then strike/throw, instead of limb control and submit however I am sure some of you lot know more than me !
Look forward to discussions, and applying some of the suggestions !
