Is this another thread where 9c goes off about how his self training could pownzer everone in bjj, then whines?
Dude, 9, it's getting old. You ass-ram so much personal bullshit into every thread that it completely statics up the thread.
If you aren't yet ready to "get around" to MMA, why don't you enter a grappling comp and post shots of your medal? There's plenty of ameteur wrestling you could enter. Go take ONE JUDO LESSON, buy a 40 dollar judogi, and win a judo comp? Tons of ways you could validate your backyard grapplin' in an open forum.
if you say "well, I can't beat specialists at their own range" then youi're basically saying "I was full of **** a moment ago when I said I knew more BJJ 'moves' then the bjjers".

Training submissions with Brandon Hinkle is like asking a parapelegic to teach you to run a marathon.

Let me see if I can help.
BJJ has never dominated: Skateboarding.
Well, I guess that's accurate.:google:

I'm jumping right in after reading just the first page of this thread, so this point may have already been made.
Aren't these wrestling/BJJ stats more to do with the fact that wrestling training and regular competition is offered at high schools across the US, whereas BJJ instruction is expensive and harder to find outside sizeable cities?
Not wanting to sound like a BJJ nutrider, but it wouldn't surprise me at all to find that a huge number of professional fighters had been on school and/or college wrestling teams. That's not the same as saying that wrestling is more important or useful for MMA than BJJ. It's just saying that (whilst undoubtedly useful) the wrestling was much more available to young atheletes all over the country.!!RENT SPACE HERE FOR 10 VBUCKS PER LINE PER MONTH!!
