    Hey Aesopian... You got some spare time?


    Bookstore Conversation
    The conversation went something like this:

    Him: "What techniques do you teach?"

    Me: "I teach whatever works. Leg locks, arm locks, chokes, neck cranks, punches, stand-up, clinch,
    leg kicks ... whatever works for us. How about you

    Him: "Well, we don't do leg locks, and we don't do neck cranks. And we don't do a whole lot of
    stand-up striking. Every once in a while we'll try them, but that's just so we know what our
    competition might use against us. But we don't do those things

    Me: "Why not?"

    Him: "Well, we practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, that's why."

    Me: "Oh."

    It wasn't too long ago that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu changed the face of modern martial arts. It came up
    quickly and demolished the competition. The rest of the martial art world was in awe. It forced
    people to look at what they were doing and reconsider the respective fighting merits of their
    chosen arts. BJJ was the new kid in town, and all the other kids took notice. They followed the
    new kid wherever he went. That was back around 1993. Now fast forward to the present ...

    Today, as the above bookstore conversation indicates, BJJ has become just another martial art.
    BJJ was so incredible because it did things no one else did. It was based on questioning the status
    quo, evolving, and doing whatever works. Now, BJJ is like all the others. It has a more-or-less fixed
    curriculum. And its practitioners follow it blindly. They worship in the temple of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
    They bow down before the Brazilians and their followers. Brazil is the new Asia. And Brazilians are
    the new Chinese Masters. Too bad.

    Keep in mind that the above conversation was with a high ranking student of Gracie Tampa. And
    Gracie Tampa is a so-called leader in the world of MMA. If Gracie Tampa is the flagship for BJJ in the
    area, the ship is sinking. The water that once flowed is now an ice cube. Evolution has ceased. And
    remember, that which doesn't grow is dead.

    I once thought that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was our competition. It shows you how wrong I can
    sometimes be. If BJJ is our greatest competition, it looks like we have little to worry about. (Unless
    of course the BJJ guys are only pretending to be so narrow minded and myopic. In which case ...
    my hat off. It takes great skill to seem so naive).

    That's my two cents for now. Good thing my opinions are free.

    Why don't you visit him?

    He also claims to be a pro fighter is I think 34-0? But there is no record of him fighting anywhere.

    Question, is a common thing to train on the mats with your dirty socks on(unless you have wrestling shoes on mind you)? Oddly enough, one guy in class Wed was actually wearing socks. Not saying it's a sign of bullshit, but just awfully odd.
