    Not really. The founder of Judo produced students who decimated the martial art establishment in Japan. The founders of Bjj produced students who decimated the martial art establishment in the 90's....
  2. And those styles are nothing more than Jujutsu...

    And those styles are nothing more than Jujutsu styles. There's nothing distinctly "Ninja" about them.



    What makes you think I'm a Kung Fu practitioner?



    Then what's the point of it?...
  3. How exactly is Hatsumi a "proven" grandmaster?...

    How exactly is Hatsumi a "proven" grandmaster? Furthermore, how do we know if Hatsumi isn't simply scamming all of you Ninjutsu followers out of money? I've never seen the man fight anyone except his...

    Exactly, and unlike Judo, Bjj has been doing that stuff for years.

    I once attended a Judo club with a friend, and during randori I did a double leg takedown, and got scolded by the instructor for...
  5. And again, the difference being that there are...

    And again, the difference being that there are hundreds if not thousands of Gracie JJ schools and affiliates around the world still teaching old school Gjj. You could argue that there is a split...

    Nonsense. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu will teach you better transitions than Judo because they actively incorporate striking into their takedowns and ground fighting. They'll also teach you how to throw and...

    Again, there are thousands of Gracie schools who teach old school Bjj, and there are zero Judo schools teaching striking or old school Judo. How can you say that its the same situation?



    Where...

    The difference is that there's still thousands of GJJ schools world wide.

    Where's the Judo school teaching old school Judo? They don't even teach Kano style Judo at the Kodokan.

    That proves my point. You never see anything crazy like that in Judo.
  10. LoL! Do they teach striking in Judo? Do they...

    LoL!

    Do they teach striking in Judo? Do they teach you how to grapple when someone is on top of you and punching/elbowing you in the face in Judo? Do they show you how to grapple and throw...

    That's an opinion. The problem with Judo is that the prejudices and goals of its founder permenantly limits the style from achieving the amount of variation you see in Bjj. That's why I said that Bjj...

    No.

    Judo isn't very popular in the US, and Rousey isn't going to change that.

    So you're still going to get American MMA fighters who do Wrestling or Bjj.

    Let's also not forget that Judo...

    No, that would be the Purple belt, which is the belt that comes after Blue.

    Blue is the quintessential intermediate belt. Its the bridge between being a beginner, and being proficient in the art....

    They put value in the Blue belt because its probably the most important rank. After blue belt, you can technically become an instructor of Bjj. Its the ranking where you're going to learn the most...

    Bjj works just fine for a self defense situation. The issue is that a lot of Bjj schools are moving away from the self defense applications and going for more sport/competition aspects.

    This video...

    If the epitome of CMA is ending up looking like a kickboxer, why don't we just take kickboxing to begin with?

    I train at a Relson Gracie school, and its definitely more self-defense based. We do quite a bit of takedowns, and striking along with grappling. We still compete, but I know that Relson is big on...

    Yeah, that nonsense blows my mind.

    What's worse is when they say that they can't win in competitions because they can't bite, pull hair, or poke people in the eyes.

    So which art sounds more...

    One of the things I noticed in Bjj was how much I thought I sucked because I was constantly going against people who knew how to counter what I was doing. It was only until I went against someone who...

    Kung Fu was created to protect oneself from animals and bandits. So the core of Kung Fu (and other martial arts) IS protection or self defense.

    The problem is how a lot of schools (and self...
