    This is pretty much my take on it as well. I see most grappling arts as still evolving. They clearly aren't making anymore huge leaps at this point, but the evolution clearly continues. So I don't see something like BJJ as a fixed set of techniques as much as a fixed set of principles that works within various rule sets. Same with Sambo, same with Wrestling ect. Rule sets dictate strategies. Principles dictate whether or not a technique will work. This is why I sat there gaping like a landed fish when the guy asked.
    Don't rely on theory if your life is at stake.
