    On a small tangent, there's this 58 year old purple belt who trains at Alliance, he started when he was 52. Even though the other purples were owning him, it was still quite impressive for a dude to start that old and still be able to roll.
    Good thing I'm 54, two years ago I might have started BJJ, but now I'm just too old.

    I think that Helio's place in ma history is secure and whoever is the head of GJJ is just going to be some guy who is the top guy, and will never have Helio's prestige, fame, and honor.

    The size thing is universal to ma, IMHO. Seems to work too, just drop into any Honolulu school and spar those little Asian guys. (LOTS of schools to chose from, but they all seem to have many 5'6" tough local Japanese (something about their penis size or lack of stature makes them receive great joy from hurting big white guys like me).

    "Good technique must use with big guy!" said Osaka (upteenth dan, head of Utah Wado) after he dropped an aggressive huge fellow who was beating up one of Osaka's bbs in class. The large guy lasted about 1.5 seconds after bowing; Osaka front kicked him in the nads.

    and actually in Kosho Ryu we do grappling (and sword, stick, standup etc) and while I suck, I did learn what "giving an arm" meant (guy just gave it to me!) and won a match.

    There is actually a term coined for the americans' dominance in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We were discussing this at the academy the other day with the guys but couldn't remember the term. I think that because the Gracies, etc...are mostly in the U.S., we have some BJJ people that are better than the Brazilians. The quality of the training in the US is very very good. Does anyone know the term I am talking about? In Brazil they call it something like = American invasion, American takeover, American something, I can't remember.

    I dare you to go tell that to Carlson. Helio is one of the founding fathers, but not THE founding father.

    Rorion trademarked the term Gracie Jiu-Jitsu so that's why it is refered to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by many. Whorion, I mean Rorion didn't want any one else to use the name at all, even family member. But they get around this by using their whole name, ex: Royce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Carlson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, etc.
