Certainly seems that way. One thing to bare in mind also is that Helio, bless his cotton socks, is touched in the head just a little fucking bit.

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

It is true that as Judo was propgated around the world, the terms Judo and jiujitsu (and yeah, it was usualy spelled jiujitsu or jujitsu and not jujutsu) were often used interchangably. It is also true that many Judoka cross trained or had backgrounds in more classical forms of JJJ. I think what we have here is a case of Kimura knowing Maeda was a Judoka and knowing that Helio had kodokan rank, so he simply used the term Judo as a catch all term even though Helio referred to his own art as Jiujitsu.

Helio Gracie weighed 170lbs? I always thought he was like 125-140lbs. 170, especially in the 1950's, is not that small. Everything I believed in is a lie!

Kimura was taught by a man named Ushijima Tatsukushima. The dude had unnatural strength and had great newaza. Obviously this influenced Kimura. Judo forum tells more about him than I ever can.
Also search ushijima on that forum, if you have the time, you will find nuggets of gold about him.
