    I can't believe I just read all that. It's good to see that the internet tradition of wasting hours of your life disproving the opinions of some moron with zero influence on anybody who matters is still going strong on Bullshido, though.

    Did my will-crushing powers sway you to evil, or does the truth of Frodoseti's quest shine through?

    I was going over anoter forum I frequent and happened across a gem. Last year, before I was training anything at all, I had just started watching MMA and was actually trying to find a boxing gym.

    At this time, I made a post that will give you insight into what a MMA-raised, Royce Gracie-envying newcomer thinks when they are looking for a martial art to learn after just reading nothing more than the Sherdog forums:
    I'm also looking for a gym with Muay Thai kickboxing, and one with Brazillian jujitsu, but they are not priorities at the moment.

    Hell, I'm even interested in judo, sambo and submission wrestling, since they are all so interesting.
    Let me repeat that:

    judo, sambo and submission wrestling

    Aren't these the arts you said people are neglecting because they are too obsessed with BJJ? And yet, I would have taken any of them, but I was lucky enough to find BJJ first.

    I'm like a Blad3 who actually trains, and even I was (and still am) willing to do judo. I would do it for the throws, not for the groundwork, since that would be retarded, but still, it's not like BJJ had driven all thoughts of other arts out of my mind.

    You are only as good as the people you train with.

    If whatever school you are training at does not have a progressive curriculum and the people are happy, shiny and unchallenging, YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME!

    Some of you may understand what I just said.

    Now, now I know the Forseti thing has gotten to you but don't be knocking my judo groundwork! Judo is the foundation I built all my grappling on. ROCK ON JUDO! :headbang:

    I'm not knocking judo groundwork, but point out how retarded it would be for me to leave BJJ for judo for its groundwork.

    Stop talking **** about judo! BJJ is judo! You wouldn't have your gay thong grappling if it wasn't for judo, which is just judo anyway. You're talking **** about judo because you mean what I want you to mean. That's the way it works on the internet.
