We can't entirely blame the newbie blowhards of BJJ or any MA system if thier instructors use terms like ultimate or best fighting system. Those words so blatently imply that the student has made the right choice and that all the rest of us sniveling little shits in the MA world are a bunch a boobs that are only allowed to survive because of thier good graces and sheer will power. These instructors use those words to sell thier system and get more bodies in the door. The newbie student simply does not know better.
Let me state for the record, my little nutriders, that there is only ONE ultimate martial art: thermo-nuclear warfare. Anything short of that is subjective.
Most good, experienced instructors know that there is no one system that outperforms the rest of them.
The best thing for a newbie to do is shut up, take his beatings, and learn all that he can. Most of us who made it to some sort of higher understanding of our particular art(s) either did just that, or just got the **** kicked out of us enough to learn that we know nothing, and that maybe the old guys got there by learning a few things that we do not know yet.

I had this last night in training. We were doing a drill where one person tried to pass guard (getting side control, mount, knee on belly), then switched to the next.
I was up with against a young guy, maybe 16 or 17. I start to pass his guard and he tries to push me off with a straight arm. Okay armbar.
I don't wait for him to tap or anything. Instead I put on the arm bar, squeeze for a quarter second and release it so that I can go to the next guy. This was a drill and not about getting the submission or making someone tap.
Instead, the guy jumps on my back like he just took it. I grab his arm and throw him over, but not too hard.

Give um an inch and they take a mile. Thats why I don't give away any inches anymore.
I am also tired of people mistaking kindness for weakness. No more kindness.

People who fervently hope for the reintroduction of spanking young whippersnappers into social acceptability and educational use are going to recieve a metaphorical spanking of their own when they're dying alone in a geezer home because their children hate them.

Dont worry KFDW, I've had this kid IM me on AOL telling me why I needed to take grappling and that any grappler(including himself) could own me in 5 seconds or some ****.
I then tried to explain that like striking, grappling was just a sport and I definately wouldn't use it in street fight situation. He still wasn't convinced and I had to tell him to politely **** off.

I must admit that, my exposure to BJJ is limited to a handful of people,
A couple of white belts, a few blues, a purple a Black and and 3rd degree.
Of all those, only the BB's were cool guys, easy going and they had no doubts about the effectivness AND limitations of their art.
Inexperience makes people think really stupid ****, especially when they equate their skill level to people WITHOUT any fighting skill.
But that is common in boxing, wrestling, heck even in judo and karate and TKD.
Its not just the BJJ scrotum sitters, its the "too deadly kung fu" guys and the "kick over your head TKD" guys and "break a coconut with my cock" guys.

My general rule of thumb is until someone has been KO'd, tapped out, or simply humiliated by someone outside of their system or school, they tend to talk way too much.
Unfortunately there are still folks that the above happens to and they still don't get it.
