Some inspiring words from inspiring people.
Can't believe that video passed quality control.
Same exact thing could be said of movies. It would still be a monumental loss for their creators.
Looks promising, I'll be keeping an eye out for it.
There's a comma between body scissors and takedowns. I was just too lazy to write "single/double leg takedown"
As an MMA fan: the head and body scissors, armbars, takedowns and triangle chokes seen in the video are super common on any female or male fight.
As a Pro-wrestling fan: the hurricanrana variations seen in the video are a staple of sub 200-pound cruiserweight wrestling, either female or male. In fact, you'd have a hard time finding a male lucha-style mexican fight without at least one variation of a rana being employed. Same thing goes for the takedowns, armbars and triangle chokes in regards to strong-style japanese wrestling, which is male-dominated.
So yeah: "as Fandor notes in the video below, it doesn't seem to serve any purpose whatsoever—except to sexualize the hero." Just not true.
