Though, my Judo class teaches us fighting AND trains us for tournaments, everything you just said, my school has. Since we have JJ guys up there as well we learn about punching, kicking, eye gouging, and when we spar them they'll be able to hit, kick, and imitate gouging and clawing. My sensei always advises us to use WHATEVER we can in a street fight, we've gone through punches to a throw, punches from a mount, throws to punches, etc. So if you think I'm going to turtle up on the ground, or put the guy in a pin, you're damn wrong.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

Now that this thread has reached 500 posts, I have decided to vote "yes".
The reason should be obvious.I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

And again, honestly, is english your first language? I'm not being an asshole I'm really curious.

With so many possible logical fallacies to address, I've been ignoring one I find particular intereting to address the more pressing ones.
In this lull, I'd like to bring it up. Forseti says (to paraphrase) that BJJ is a fad because:
A newcomer will move away from BJJ when they learn it is just judo.versusProfessional MMA/NHB fighters are moving away from BJJ.
Pro fighter = newcomer? :icon_pira :5question

Yeah, I tried to point that out a few times too. I figured there was a more fun battle to fight.
Up to probably about 150 posts ago I was trying to get him to cite any examples of the nhb crowd moving away from bjj. My evidenced was centered on Jackson's team and Couture and Liddel having a bjj teaching groundfighting on TUF.
I figured it was easier to simply point out his central idea and its flaw (no support).

What I find hilarious is how in the next TUF, Marc Laimon could say on national television "BJJ was originally Kosen judo" and no one would care, except some bitter judoka.
