    What else could you possibly be defending? We ARE talking about Judo, right?

    In Reference to Post #2 (linked above in Wabbit's post) I think there would be two defining elements.

    1: Ruleset. Rather than being frequently stood up, like in Judo, you would simply have a set period of time to grapple, resets of position only occuring in the case of submission via tapout. Perhaps a best 2/3 or 3/5 tapouts can determine a winner, if 1 is not sufficient.

    2: Visual differentiation. This is with No-Gi Jujutsu in mind, specifically. Rather than standard white and blue Judogi's, we would have a black and white rashguard, respectively.
    In the case of Jujutsu with Gi, have the contestants wear white and black, or blue and black instead.

    Josh gave a great summary of why BJJ won't be in the Olympics AND the reasons for the current rule changes. I'll add that the Olympics are now about MONEY, you know, filthy lucre. In the case of Judo, the IJF is about MONEY because the Olympics are about MONEY. Either the IJF became about MONEY or Judo was going to be out of the Olympics.

    Unfortunately, being about MONEY is not what Judo is really about from the beginning, I think we can all agree on that whether or not we can read Meji-era Japanese and understand it in it's cultural context.

    Personally I think it would be much more of an advantage to BJJ's future if it was a grappling event that let in Wrestlers/Sambo/BJJ. Competition against other forms of grappling will always force BJJ to evolve and keep on improving.

    Money for who? Cuz it sure isn't for the athletes

    eg Ronda Rousey quitting to become a fighter and working 5 jobs to pay the rent.

    Well, the question that pops into my mind is whether or not money motivates the athlete.
    This may have been misreported or misconstrued to me, but I'm led to believe that Brock Lesnar gave up far more lucrative contracts in hollywood and the WWE to fight professionally in MMA. I'm sure he still gets paid a tructon, but it would be hard to argue that his move into 'real' fighting was financially motivated.

    Brock was also well off when he made the switch, money doesen't matter to him as he has tons of it.
