I found this on another forum and thought it was very interesting :
Judo does evolve. The reason BJJ seems to have the upper hand is because it has no form. It is undeveloped, raw technique, which is why the fighters end up rolling around on the mat for quite a while, instead of throw, sprawl, pin, like so many other grappling arts. When you take Judo, you will feel the difference.
Okay, let me rephrase to give credit where it's due : BJJ is more flexible and adaptive, but the more traditional styles are more precise and have much sharper technique. That's why I think that in the "streets" Judoka have the upper hand.
BJJ is more adaptable, Judo is more precise. But any good fighter with half a brain will make the most of their system and and take all advantages possible.
Do you think Judo has/is evolving ?

Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

The reason BJJ doesn't END with a pin is that fights don't end with a pin.

BJJ isn't refined? Give me a break.

that really didn't make much sense
Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious

If you want to talk about whether or not ending a fight with a pin is realistic, what about being penalized for backing out of guard?
I think a sub grappling competition aimed at realism would be somewhat close to Sambo rules, with chokes allowed.
But yes, that was stupid. BJJ is definately a very refined art.

I copied it from another thread because I taught it was provocative.
My personal opinion is that BJJ is highly refined and its efficiency lies exactly on the subtle and somewhat "invisible" details that can be better felt than explained.
But what I was interested to know from you was if Judo was/is evolving or if it's a stagnated art.

Judo is stagnated by its rules. Its just throw pin in competition.
If Judo sparred and had tourneys with rules more like open grapple tourneys it would evolve again. If all it does is this restrictive judo-style throwing contests and little to no subbing, thats all its going to be.

Judo is purposely prevented from evolving. When sambo guys came in with their unusual grips and started beating up the judo guys, instead of adjusting the style to the new challenges, the grips were just outlawed. When wrestlers started taking down all the judo guys, instead of learning to outwrestle them, they just penalized the throws. The only "evolution" that springs to mind is finally reinstituting the triangle choke (although you still can't pull down on the head).
