He knows that. We weren't being serious about who came up with the triangle choke.

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.
My opinion is a bit bias since I don't like BJJ... That being said the old style vs style debate is always dependant on the goal of the user.
I thought Sambo was what you called it when your Gi pants spent too much time in the dryer…
Screw the either or, cross train in everything.
Did it kill your dog or something?

My $.02, having trained in both...
The majority of pure sambo players that I know don't have near the mat skills that BJJ guys have, although there are certainly exceptions. BJJ is much more technical on the ground. There are a handful of sambo guys that compete at BJJ tournaments around here, and their ground movements typically aren't as fluid.
However, I would give the overall advantage to sambo, because it is a more complete system
(speaking of both arts in isolation), and there's that 2 or 3 seconds after the fight hits the ground that BJJ guys are usually a little lost... it's that short, transitional period between takedown and positioning. But the emphasis in sambo on entering, throwing, and quickly submitting is superior IMO.
If you supplement either art with the other, then you have an incredible weapon.
who the **** cares what your grappling skill is called as long as you win the fight.
