    Statements in books don't get coverage on BJJ Scout or BJJ Digest or commented on by Flow Grappling.

    A movie with someone that has a BJJ Heroes page:
    https://www.bjjheroes.com/bjj-fighte...sdale-wiki-bio

    Releasing a documentary is likely to get the Gracie Cult members attention, in those spheres.
    What the back lash from this will be I have 0 clue, hard to predict.
    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.

    I would predict a lot of backlash.

    A good example of that is the "trouble" Keenan Cornelius got for his funny as hell comments on the MatBurn podcast about Helio & Rickson Gracie: ‘Their Level Was Probably Tough Purple Belt’.
    Like he was getting lets say insincere death threats.
    Here's a recent youtube video by a Rickson JJ black belt.

    He argues that substituting weapon or striking techniques from arts that specialize in those domains is bad, but my favorite is around 9:30.

    "If Rickson does it, we do it. If Rickson doesn't do it, we don't do it."
