Yes, but their version is 100x harder.
Thank you, you officially have become my hero of the week. It doesn't come with much of an award save the fact that I will probably use some of the above as my sig.

Sumus extra manum tuam.
I know I'm raising a reeeeeeaaally old thread, but I do have some inside info on QJJ.
One of their instructors, 'Sensei' Cory Wimberly went to Penn State with me and was the head instructor of the Penn State QJJ while I was the captain of the PSU Judo Team.
First off, I fucking HATE that guy.
Now the backstory:
Wimberly came in to PSU Judo back in my sophomore year, which woulda been around the winter of 98-99. I was a new green belt then. Like all newbies, he was put through the wringer. PSU Judo gets alot of wanna-bes and we put them through a few tough practices to see if they can hack it.
Wimberly decided he could not and quit. I randori'd with him a few times and had no problem throwing him or tapping him out.
Lo & behold, a few months later, he reemerges with a shiny new black belt and the title of 'Sensei'. He then proceeds to email PSU Judo Coach Hachiro Oishi (who is also the Intramural Building Coordinator) to TELL Oishi what times he'll be requiring for his practice sessions and signs it 'Sensei Wimberly'. Oishi was kind enough to show me the email so we could both have a good laugh before he deleted it.
After our lifting sessions, we would often watch the QJJ kids practice. It was hilarious. EVERYTHING was both dramatic and incorrect. Wimberly himself can't even execute a Ippon Seionage without being WAY back on his heels and overly bending at the hips. His technique is TERRIBLE.
Suffice it to say, I hate everything about QJJ and wish them the most painful death imaginable. I've gone so far as to personally email all QJJ instructors to issue a grappling/MMA challenge, but I've not received any response.
Their style is complete and utter garbage and has little, if any, redeeming qualities. Yet they go about preaching that they teach 'teh deadly'.
The first thing that comes to mind when I see the QJJ video is ju jutsu duo:
YouTube- Ju Jutsu European Championship Duo
i.e. what's the flashiest sequence of moves you can do on a compliant partner?

They attempted to reorganize and masquerade as the Penn State Jiu Jitsu Club, but that too was shut down.
Their most recent head instructor, Dave Light now teaches BJJ as a Purple Belt at Central Pennsylvania Academy of Mixed Martial Arts, also located in State College. I've heard they (CPAMMA) are a decent group of guys who train pretty hard.
Prior to finding out about the demise of QJJ, I emailed Dave Light and issued a MMA/Grappling challenge to him or one of his QJJ students. He initially indicated he would accept, but since has ceased correspondence.
Methinks he googled my name and tucked tail.
I still HATE those QJJ guys.
Well, at least they are gone from campus then :)
You know it's funny. When I was looking at colleges (had to have been 1999), I checked out the main PSU campus in State College. While I was waiting for the orientation session to begin, they had some yearbook type bound volumes on the desk. Now that I hear the name, I swear I remember seeing a picture of the Quantum Jiu-Jitsu club in the book. There were quite a few people in the photo.
Pretty wack. I had to wait until grad school at Indiana University, but at least there was a nice BJJ club there.
