What's harder? Getting punched in the face obviously, followed by having your legs repeatedly kicked.

Dry-humping and wriggling around on the matt in the most undignified positions imaginable doesn't even compare.

Personally i think this is a stupid idea, imo striking is far more difficult and dangerous than grappling but she is convinced that's not the case.

I've tried to explain that while grappling if you feel uncomfortable you can just tap were as if your sparring its not so easy to just give up as its kind of frowned upon also if you're in a sub you can tap before damage is done but if you're sparring and a hard shot lands and cracks your rib you cant really stop it from cracking

She wants to start off in kickboxing because in her opinion its "easier" and it will make her more comfortable before moving into bjj

So opinions needed here guys am i wrong ? is grappling really more physically demanding and dangerous for beginners than striking ?
Why are we talking one versus the other? Striking and grappling are of course not mutually exclusive. If she is interested in mma then I'd suggest that she joins an mma gym and will train all facets. What is the motivation to narrow down the training?

some truth to that.....but allot of mma gyms that try to teach everything tend to be jack offs of all trades and masters of none.

well when you start doing muay thai you will learn how to stand and give a 1-2.
well when you start doing BJJ you will learn how to sweep.

Neither are dangerous when you start.

striking is much more dangerous cause of the blows you take to your cranium

in grappling you just tap thats not the case with striking
