I am tall, and I have super gangly arms and legs. This really doesn't translate into graceful grappling.
While grappling, I've been called, lengthy, leggy, wasp-y, and noodle-y. I've been told grappling me is like grappling an octopus, and I've had "Release the Kraken!" screamed in my face more then once when I pull guard.
All of that sounds awesome, right. Except maybe noodly. Which is sadly probably the most accurate of the aforementioned adjectives.
RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!
This is what you think... but really, I am more like this:
I wanna be a wasp!
A non-threatening, bowl of noodles?... maybe.
But, low and behold, I came across a picture on the internet yesterday that I am fairly certain captures what I look like perfectly when I grapple.
I am a drunk and/or drowning flamingo.
Sad times... sad times indeed.
I really just wish I was a wasp though.
