That's deferent. If he wins most of his fights by subs it isn't normal to say he is a TKD fighter. As said before take Silva fir example he says Muay-Thai is his base and thats true most of his fights end by KO'S from punches, he rarely tryes to finish a fight by a Sub despite the fact that he trains alot in BJJ.

Heh, I just had a thought. What would that make Vitor Belfort?

By this argument you could just say that all the people that do bjj are really doing judo, even if they've never trained in it. This could continue on and on. As long as you are applying the principles of your art, you are doing your art.

Hey! This guy is from Hawaii and martial arts there are in general better than on the mainland.
There is lots of cross training. Take the women's number one rated collegiate wrestler, Clarissa Chun, also happens to hold a bb in Kodokan Judo.
Toni Giraldi, the head of a Muay -Thai school, was a Kempo tournament champ in the 80's. Kempo Unlimited has organized a tournament that features sport Jiu-Jitsu and Continuous Fighting divisions and schools as diverse as shoot fightin and TKD enter. If you are active it would be normal to cross train and/or take techniques-the Universal Kempo school prides itself on changing, rather than holding onto a particular style.

Vitor Has 10 Wins. TKO'S and a KO and 2 Sub's. Anyway most of his TKO'S like Vitor vs TANK were combinations GROUND AND STRIKES. So it's the same for me. Vitor also is concidered a great Puncher, but in his fights he Uses BJJ alot.

BJJ is distilled judo.

What he also meant is that most of the same submissions are also in Judo which is also older.

Yes Most of the tehniques r used in Judo but the athletes of Judo aren't so familiar with the Sub's since u will rarely see a Judo Match End with a Sub due to the Rules.
