Kingmob, why are you being such an asshole about this point? Your statements can be said about boxing, bjj, muay thai etc. Modern JJ? And where did their basis come from? I don't want to have a lame lineage war arguement. I don't want to get into semantic arguements with you. You make generalized statements they tend to come back and bite you in the butt. There is an exception to almost all rules out there and where as I'll tend to agree on a less generalized sense I don't believe your original statement holds true.
And before you reply realize I don't really have the time or energy to really put forth a solid arguement. Most of those guys are just off the top of my head don't make me go into full research mode. Hell, what about me I'm trained in JJJ and technically not BJJ (I'm more sambo than anything else). I've seen the guys out there that know what they're doing. MMA is not a litmus(sp?) test on whether a martial art is of any value because most won't hold up alone in the MMA areana.
