    I think one of Bruce's senior guys was a judo practitioner of note. I could be wrong, I don't know a lot about Bruce and JKD.

    In the Tao of JKD, there is a drawing that is an exact copy of a photograph of a catchwrestling hold.



    Also, I heard that when Gene picked up Bruce, Bruce said "When you put me down I'm going to kill you..."
    Hahah. And THEN they became friends.

    I always thought that he trained in Shuai Chiao but I guess that's wrong, I think it's said that he incoporated Judo into his Jeet Kune Do then maybe he learned Judo also other than CMA's

    This is an article that Gene wrote.

    As far as military using BJJ? Well, former Soviet Union used Sambo (combat grappling system), Japan uses/used Judo, US used Judo then BJJ. I think they want there guys to be able to grapple if they get in that kind of situation. I know for a fact Iran trains a grappling (from a friend of mine). Pretty common I think.

    Thanks for the insights everyone. That clears it up a bit on my original question. No BJJ training for Bruce Lee.

    Proceed with the customary bashing/flaming that ends every thread....Now we just need someone to say something stupid. Where's that tai-gip guy when you need him? :D

    I dont think Lee knew of the existence of BJJ back then. If he did he probably would have trained in it and incorporated it into JKD. Although Lee did have drawings on grappling and ground techniques. I thought that was interesting.

    Judo is a grappling art, so my guess is it is possible some of it came from there. Not to make this a BJJ/Judo thread, but many of the tech's are the same, to say the least.

    I heard that Bruce knew Wally Jay and learned a few things from him.

    Actually Michael Gent is only the head of Bujinkan as far as I'm aware. He's affiliated with John Will along with a couple of guys down the line, and is iirc a purple. Geoff Aitken in chch is acutally the most senior of the Will affiliates.

    Having said that there are more advanced people round. There are now a few Brazzillian black belts teaching in Auckland and one brown belt. They've made a federation of sorts which ran the first BJJ Open in Auckland a few months back. The ninja's didn't attend, possibly because it was put together by the Brazillians in the country and I'm not sure how widely they publicised it outside their own organisations (although we did get some people come across from Oz)
