question: machado jj and gracie jj/bjj
I've seen several times on the net and here a reference to "Machado jj". My understanding is that the Machado brothers have been among the top of the bjj food chain for over 20 decades. However, when I see the term "Machado jj", that term seems to imply (at least to me) that this is a distinct style of bjj. I've searched around, and I can't find a definite, objective answer.
Does "Machado JJ" only means BJJ taught under the Machado brothers, or does it stand for a distinct style. If so, what makes it distinct? :eusa_thin

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
-BJJ = Gracie Jiu-Jitsu = Machado Jiu-Jitsu....And none of them are 20 decades old...

Would you say that the strategies, training methods and favored techinques taught by the Macado Bros. are the same as are taught by Carlos Jr. and that Carlos' in turn are the same as Helio?
It's all pretty much the same.
Actually no I would not. I also disagree with Aeso. Its not all the same.

Negative. This isn't the place for that. As far as is relevant to answer the OP's question. Your correct.

Gracie or Machado, it's all quality Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
And there this thread should end, forever elevating it, and BJJ, above the petty lineage wars of _Ing __Un.
