    I do concur with the BJJ over JJJ consensus in this case. J-Lau is a very capable fighter, and his group looks very good.

    But with that being said, do not always dismiss JJJ instructors without seeing them first. While many do screw around with the standing locks stuff, there are a few JJJ instructors out there that are ground specialists. In addition, their takedowns can be quite good too.

    Sure, with BJJ, you pretty much know what you'll be getting (good stuff), but it is possible to find good JJJ.

    There are times when JJJ may have the advantage over BJJ, namely if a weapon is involved. As the techniques in JJJ were often built with the premise that the conflict would involve weaponry, course they also intended on you wearing armor too...

    So again it comes down to the instructor and what you want out of it.

    Yes, if you want to travel through time and space to feudal Japan, JJJ is better.

    A lot of JJJ has adapted itself with techniques from BJJ and submission wrestling.

    A good teacher is a good teacher.

    That said go with Joe Lauzon and BJJ. IF you have a chance to train with a pro fighter you would be silly not to take it.

    Or, in other words, some JJJ black belts have BJJ blue belts.

    Well since BJJ is purely an adaptation of JJJ, you are saying JJJ is stealing techniques back. lol....

    No. I'm saying the most effective BJJ techniques were Catch Wrestling techniques learned by Maeda when he toured America. Those are the ones being stolen by JJJ.

    Bullshit begets bullshit.

    Saying the BJJ comes from JJ is like saying strawberries come from cow ****. I mean, yes fields are fertilized with cow **** and strawberries do grow there...but to act like strawberries and cow **** is the same thing is kinda silly.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.
