In grappling, its considered alright to tap out so a dozen tap outs or so and its mostly your ego that takes a battering.
getting dominated at grappling usually isnt near the physical beating and as getting punched. having said that..kicks to the legs suck when your not use to it....however, i have never really been beaten up doing the stand up with kicks (ive never really done real MT) but boxing...in close battles with professional 200 pounders have left me kind of feeling messed up in the head for days and wondering why the **** I am doing this.
