    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Looks like we found out how Ashton Kutcher got his purple belt in BJJ

    The short answer is that it isn't a real purple belt.

    What separates BJJ from a lot of the Jujutsu variants out there is the live training and attention to sparring. Without it there is no difference between this and Aikido. While I am sure this is making Rigan Machado lots of money it also dilutes the quality of his ranks.

    Ah, geeze. I'm sure no one expects Charli Hunman or Usher to actually be able to roll but Vin Diesel doesn't spar?
    I'm shattered...

    How? He appears to be marketing it as an, at least almost, completely separate system. "Flow jiu-jitsu" or something.

    How the hell can you learn BJJ without rolling? What does he do, hand them a blow-up doll to drill with? How can any of this be beneficial in a real confrontation?

    This just looks like another rich-person-vanity-thing.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Vin Diesel does roll sometimes.

    It's like offering swimming lessons where the participants are never required to go deeper than the 3 foot section of the pool.

    To be fair the article doesn't actually state which celebrities roll and which don't.

    I don't have an enormous problem with him teaching this "Flow Jiu Jitsu" thing to people who won't/can't risk injuries, but I'd be a hell of a lot happier if he made a clear distinction between his BJJ ranks and his FJJ ranks.

    Yeah, you have to follow what is written pretty tightly, but I don't think this is BJJ.

    I created a new jiu jitsu system for people who can’t get hurt.
    Emphasis added.

    Rigan calls this style for celebrities “flow jiu jitsu”.
    It's not BJJ.

    The idea behind the program is not a bad idea. The fact he gives out BJJ ranks along with it is a problem.

    Why can't they just train their no-rough-housing grappling without belts?

    Because then nobody would take it.
