Well sir, as I respect your right to randomly post a subject that has been covered in much greater detail, with a much more intellegent perspective, by much more intellegent people let me be one of many to say...Quote:

First of all BJJ has a much higher quality control measures than any other martial art system currently popular. Simply put, belts are earned not given away. You cannot achieve rank without being able to perform. And its representation in the military, law enforcement, self defense programs in ADDITION to combat sport dominance certainly attests to this fact.
Second, BJJ does no better or no worse against the famed 'multiple opponent' scenario than stand up arts. 5 on 1 the chances are you are going to lose whether you are a BJJ expert, Boxing expert, Kenpo expert, or whatever. Just in case you were wondering, stand up arts fare no different than grapplers when out numbered.
The STRENGTH of BJJ in comparision to stand up arts is that they CAN fight when knocked down. A stand up-only fighter is woefully out of their depth. I will dumb it down for you. BJJ prepares you for the worst case scenario : You got jumped by a bigger, stronger opponent and knocked to the ground. You are in an inferior position and getting beat down. If you are prepared to deal with that (as BJJ is) than everything else is going to be gravy.
Now, as previously posted in another thread (already linked) I have questioned some assumptions we make about belts, styles, and ability. But if you read it carefully I do not simply slam BJJ and say it is going to become bullshido.
Unfortunately you come off as an uneducated, uninformed, novice poster unable to make a persuasive arguement.
Try again, nub.
