    Why should Carlinhos inherit? The eldest son is Carlson by far.

    I'm not an expert on succession by any means, but bearing in mind that there are other living 10th Dans - Reylson, I think, and Helio's other brothers too. Rorion could hardly overtake them.

    There is a lot of controversy about who the REAL GM of GJJ etc. is. Carley, Carlson etc. all claim that Carlos Sr. is the true GM and that HE was the one that converted the JJ he was taught to use against real life situations. He WAS the one that started the Gracie Challenge in the 1920's and that was several years before Helio ever fought. Plus, Carlos Sr. was smaller than Helio by about two inches and ten pounds, yet he went undefeated. Another of Helio's older brothers Osvaldo, faought in challenge matches also before Helio. The Carlos side of the family claim that Helio and Rorion are simply trying to take credit for what their father did. They claim that it worked because Rorion learned English first and got over here to get the lock on the market.

    Oh wait, maybe you are.

    Kosen judo puts GJJ ground work to shame WITH A GI ON, without a gi GJJ is far superior.
    Ronin69, what led you to form these opinions, particularly the one about Kosen ground work being superior to GJJ?

    Just observation and my opinion, that is as full of **** as everyone elses :)
    Kosen judo, in regards to GI Ground work, seems, to be more "advanced".
    Again this is just based on what I have seen in terms of instructional video/dvd/books, and has NOTHING to do with competition, just the curriculum.
