Sambo, Judo, BJJ, Catch Wrestling vs MKF’s grappling skills???

My thoughts on a question that was posted about Sambo, Judo, BJJ, Catch Wrestling vs Devin’s grappling skills???

The question has been answered on how MKF does against the different type opponents (small examples see detail here and here) I do understand an instructor in Modern Kung Fu was beaten by a Gracie (Royce) in the eary 90’s . Since then Most MKF families have enchanced the ground game. However Devin has kept to his training as he always been taught.

If one was to watch Devin Willis or a person who trained with him was to us grappling skills only . It would seem as a modifed Greco-Roman , Freestyle wrestling, Shuai Chiao and Judo . clinching, takedowns and throws,

Note Devin always taught to soften with strikes using modifed Muay Thai, boxing Kenpo to improve the striking aspect of the clinch.

On the Ground:  a mkf person uses modifed Chin na Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, shoot wrestling, catch wrestling, Judo, and Sambo are trained to improve submission holds, and defense against them. we use  the WEB to tied opponents arms up. Other people have thoutht Devin used modified Jiu-Jitsu, pankration, and styles of amateur wrestling are trained to improve positioning and maintain ground control . They are correct
