    ^^^^^ listen to this man.

    I don't remember if I'm conflating things here, but I think a forum member had similar experiences with the Torrance Academy.
    i distinctly recall an excellent post on this subject. i'm pretty sure it was by yrkoon9.

    That's what I thought. However, I wasn't sure if he was reposting info from Laimon.

    I wonder what the distinction is -- what 'lineages' count as official GJJ?

    I get the impression that Gracie Barra is "BJJ not GJJ", in spite of a Gracie at the top. Or am I merely confused...?

    Gracie JiuJitsu, roughly, is Helio's kids and in particular Rorian (who trademarked the name gracie jiu jitsu). BJJ generally comes down through the other side of the family.

    Rorian is a douchebag and a half...


    Though i'll argue that perhaps "b.j.j" is better then "g.j.j" (strictly in terms of how its taught...) Because 6 time b.j.j world champion Saulo Ribeiro, and grappler of the year Xande Riberio sure as **** aren't teaching "gracie jiu jitsu"...

    I think perhaps "gracie jiu jitsu" would be taught from the viewpoint that Gracies are gods, and people aren't fit to possess all their knowledge, or be on their level...


    if you get my drift.

    PROOF that I'm not a completely useless poster:

    Roy Harris had issues with the Gracies as well:

    http://members.aol.com/bjj33/harrishistory.html

    Well, one day I was watching a video in the reception area and Craig Kukuk walked in. He asked, "Who said you could watch that video?" I told him, "Rorion said I could." He asked, "Where did you get the video?" I said, "From Rorion's office? Rorion told me I could go into his office and get a video to watch while I was waiting." Craig snatched the video out of the VCR and told me to never go into Rorion's office again. He said, "Rorion would not want you to watch this video." I asked "Why?" He said, "Because of what is on the tape. You can watch 'Gracie Jiu Jitsu in Action Part One', but that's it. All the other tapes are off limits to you!" I thought that was kind of funny, but who was I to argue with Mr. Kukuk? He was a brown belt and I was a lowly blue belt. So, I chalked it up to experience and kept training. I never went into Rorion's office again and never watched a video on my own.
    Several months into my Jiu Jitsu training, a Russian Sambo player (named "Nikolay Baturin") stopped by my self-defense class at the University (of California) and asked to roll with me. I said sure. What happened next was mind blowing! I began to tap the mat like an experienced conga player. I had never felt such pain and pressure on my ankles, knees and hips before. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "Sambo." I asked him if he would mind showing me some of that stuff and he agreed.

    I trained off and on with him for about the next year. During that time, my familiarity and confidence with leg locks grew and began to manifest itself. I began to tap some of the senior blue belts and newer purple belt at the academy. However, my glory ended abruptly when Rorion called me into the office one day and politely asked me to stop doing leg locks. He said they were causing hard feelings amongst the students, and, he would prefer that I not do them any more. I agreed and kept on training.
    There's a lot more there, including run-ins with the Machados.
