    Thank you.
    bjj = basically just judo :P


    "sucks" may be a bit strong of a word, but i think it leaves a little too much room for improvement

    There is a guy here in Japan that is a pure Judoka and he has entered in BJJ comps and won. He has obviously worked on his newaza and it is much better than the average in Judo but it can be done.

    I know its not evidence of Judo's ability on the ground but it shows that if you work hard on it, you can get to a very high level. I guess I am just hoping that other Judoka will try to excell on the ground because I think that sometimes the refs stand people up so quick because they suck on the ground.

    I don't actually care and I am unclear why a blatant troll comment merits serious response.
    I figure judo ground proficiency is probably a little higher and a little more consistent than the standing proficiency of most bjj guys.
    Not that that says much.

    I was just chiming in with a Rainman-esque comment.

    they will if groundwork becomes more important in the olympics. Otherwise they'll stick with being great throwers

    The coach said that 8% of wins in modern judo were due to ground submission, but that it's likely to change. Any truth to this?

    That sounds about right. I always watch the Olympic Judo matches and it is pretty rare for them to go to the ground. In my class randori sessions, it's more like 60/40 throws/groundwork.

    My Judo club is about 40% Throws/ 60% ground. Then again my Judo instructor is 100% blind so...yeah.

    My judo club has perhaps 20% newaza with emphasis on transitioning from a throw (ippon or not) into newaza, and the rest is just pure throwing. And on Saturdays it's kata. Since I only go two or three times a week (and I never miss newaza day) - it's pretty much 40% to 50% newaza for me...

    ... and I haaaate when they tell me to turn facing down everytime single time I'm defending from a sub or pin. Besides that little detail, I like the place.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
