    Vale Tudo

    I heard Vale Tudo means "no rules" and is both a Martial art and a sport, but I have yet to see a match, is it illegal/dead?

    Vale Tudo still runs in Brazil (It's Called Mecca Vale Tudo). I'm pretty sure the term actually means "Anything Goes" in Portuguese (The native language of Brazil). You can get 100's of different Vale Tudo events on VHS or VHS from www.amazon.com

    Alot of instructors also say they are teaching Vale Tudo, but I don't know if they mean they are teaching "no rules," or if they are teaching certain Brazillian styles. So, if you have an instructor telling you he teaches "Vale Tudo," I imagine it is simillar to having someone tell you they teach you "no holds barred."

    there are one or two places near me that teach "no holds bared" they then specify bjj and muay thai. however, they have classes in which both grappling and strikes are allowed. while i don't have such experience, i would imagine that actually doing both together would be different than doing both seperate and theorizing how they could work together...

    Saying Portuguese is "the native language of Brazil" is like saying English is "the native language of Australia".

    Portuguese is the native language of Portugal.
