    1. Wearing and manipulating the GI
    2. Smaller vs Bigger opponent
    3. Bottom position.
    4. Reversals

    That would be it.

    These days there is soooo much overlap that it doesn't matter what you choose as long as it isn't a stuck up instructor that refuses to roll and learn from everybody.

    Should you take SAMBO or BJJ first. I think everybod should start off with....Judo, because Judo will actually work on your base then flip a coin and cross train as much as you want.

    There, anybody want to argue? :new_uklia
    as usual you are correct.
    Eduardo "Why'd you stop."

    Me "I was kicked in the head by the guys sparring next to me."

    Eduardo "Ino what happened but i didnt say you could stop."

    Me "Um.. I guess I keep going."

    Eduardo "You dont stop until i say stop, you dont get tired until i say your tired, keep going."

    You forgot one, very important thing. The thong. BJJ is the best training to ready you for wearing a thong. I mean, who wants to see a big hairy Russian in a thong? Not that you could wear one there without getting a NASTY case of frost bite anyways.
    Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?

    I wonder what he was trying to do when he developed it.

    I think we are coming full circle to a point where many arts are becoming unrecognizable from thier original forms. So when someone says, I do BJJ you have to wonder...old, new, MMA Xtrained, pure sport, no gi?

    What we all need to recognize is that ninjitsu can claim heritage to all of it because way way way back some samurai who trained in jiu jitsu started up ninjitsu, so everything Judo/Sombo/BJJ guys do - ninja's also do and we would all be well advised to don some tabi's and show the proper fucking respect.

    That's a pretty good point, as every martial art has gone a few different ways. Take karate. You'll have hard (kyokushin, goju-ryu), soft (isshin-ryu, American Karate). Those that train for point fighting, others for bare-knuckle kumite, others for "self-defense" or flashy XMA exhibitions and kata demos. Die-hard traditionalists who do everything they used to back in the day without changing it, and those who try to evolve it to fit more modern times. That's a good point Yrkoon.

    As a noob, 2-4 seem like pretty compelling reasons to take BJJ. What would be the advantages to Sambo besides leg locks?

    Isshin-ryu is NOT a soft system, I think you mean Wado-ryu.

    heck, its pretty funny but, technique wise I remember a BJJ BB telling me that I could fake a BJJ BB if I wanted, except for the whole rolling and getting owned by blue belts...fuckers.

    Anyways...

    Just get a very dark blue belt. Then when you get owned, you can reveal that you are actually just a blue belt!

    I keep an assortment of vaguely odd colored belts for just such an emergency...
