    You don't think has? You don't think there are those that just know that jiu-jitsu is the bomb without even knowing there is a difference between BJJ and JJJ?

    At any rate, JJJ is not nearly as popular as Judo so it is just one obscure MA for another between those two as opposed to Judo which is a common MA.

    Yes, I agree that just because it is Kosen Judo blah blah blah.
    It is a question of why it has an inflated popularity as to why it is a fad. blah blah blah

    Okay, obviously I am making an argument here much like what I have actually heard and even once might have accepted myself. Blah blah blah....

    Reasonable doubt blah blah blah....

    You said (paraphrasing): Newcomers would go take something besides bjj once they discover it has strong roots in judo.

    There is nothing to support that contention.


    Please refrain from posting on this topic until you back up that contention or admit you were wrong. And don't say you didn't say that, you clearly have, numerous times.

    Also please pm deadpan scientist with your vitals (re: education) he is in a better position to assess and investigate them than is phrost who is too busy anyway.

    you so stoopid

    If you think there's been a mass influx of jjj students based on the popularity of bjj, you're even dumber than I thought. Has there been a couple of people? Sure. Can you call it a trend? No.
    You say what about my rice?

    I want to share as little personal information with you belligerent assholes as possible. I already don't like the fact that Phrost told you he didn't have time...

    So so our faceless martial arts novice wants to learn any martial art in the world. He happens to watch a Sherdog highlight reel of Royce Gracie and thinks "Wow, I want to fight like him." He goes and finds a BJJ school and starts taking classes.

    BUT ALL OF THE SUDDEN THE PLOT THICKENS!

    He comes on Bullshido and reads this very thread, and learns the shocking truth that BJJ is just Kosen judo. His dreams of uniqueness are crushed, and he loses all faith in the Gracies.

    He leaves BJJ, now knowing The Truth and...

    What? Goes to Kodokan judo? Tries to find a sambo school? The popularity of BJJ decreases how?

    The only way I can see that happening is if the student feels he has been lied to. Suppose students of a particular school (doesn't need to be BJJ) were told from day one that their sensei invented the style and it turned out he lied. I can see a downside.

    Ten years experience can be ten true years or one year repeated ten times.

    The Gracie's have always credited Maeda, so that wouldn't be the case. Aesopian's last post reveals how ridiculous Forseti's claims actually are.

    Since when did BJJ people engage in such long winded pontifications?
