    I'm sure others would assert that BJJ focuses on and further develops parts of Judo, while neglecting others. Not that the distinction matters except to people who want to assert that their style is "better."

    From some website:

    "On Oct. 23, 1951, judo's Masahiko Kimura fought Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu's inventor Helio Gracie at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Just about a month earlier, Gracie had defeated one of the best judo fighters in the world, Yukio Kato, by choke. Hence, there was a lot of pressure on Kimura, who had a 40- to 50-pound weight advantage on his smaller adversary.

    Kimura was widely considered to be the greatest judo fighter in the world, so the Japanese people were counting on him. Coming into the match, Kimura indicated that he would knock his opponent out with a throw and that if Gracie were to last more than three minutes, he'd consider himself the winner.

    Kimura dominated the match from a throwing perspective, continually slamming Gracie into what was apparently a somewhat soft mat. Since these moves did not stop Gracie as he thought they might, Kimura then began looking for submissions. After roughly 12 minutes, Gracie had been rendered unconscious by a choke but somehow persevered.

    Kimura sunk in a reverse ude-garami (shoulderlock), but Gracie was so tough that he refused to submit, having his arm broken instead. Eventually, his corner threw in the towel, and Kimura was rightfully given the win.

    Judo won out here. But in the process, Gracie and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu certainly gained some respect."

    Wish there was video of that one.



    USA's greatest judo competitor, Jimmy Pedro, wrestled at Brown University, qualifying for the NCAA tournament twice. He won one match in those two tournaments.

This can all happen without ever releasing the deep collar grip. No one jiu jitsu attack works. They have to come in combination to be effective.

    Training today was fantastic. I tried the transition from the video above and almost pulled it off. I didn't use my leg to keep my partner close as I went for the arm bar and he was able create enough space and get his shoulder to the mat. I did however get the tap by a kimura to armbar transition from side control.

    For the record I love judo, jiu jitsu, Greco, freestyle and folk style wrestling. I don t think one style is dominant, the combination, the blending of styles one moment to the next is the ideal. At this point I have over 20 years studying these arts so in this context I will keep my own council on what is the best technique for the right moment and the right opponent. Any bjj gym that ignores the stand up is not where you should train.

    The lapel grip is what keeps the hips tight to the shoulder. Not bad watching a video and almost succeeding in execution. I think you re probably better than most blue belts.

    We had our kids classes this morning, my 8yo has been officially training for a couple years. His first tournament is the first week in April. He's stoked, I m nervous.

    Isbd....the conversation you are trying to engage in was settled at UFC 1. Bjj wins.

    Anyone know Pol? An Irishman currently living in Japan. Apparently a world champion BJJ?

    When the Gracie's came to the states they would take out ads in the local paper openly accepting all challengers. You can watch endless grainy old footage of them taking on wrestlers, strikers, ect. It show pretty clearly the dominance of the art.

    A year of Judo under his yellow belt helped my kid some when he went out for his middle school wrestling team. He finished third in the district for his weight class at the end of 8th grade.

    Still, I'll take South Beach Bernice with the wrench as my backup..

    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    It’s impressive if you think he wrestled at Brown as an after-thought. He won an EIWA title in the midst of competing at the world championships and the Olympics in judo at the same time. If Pedro had focused on wrestling and been in a very competive Big 10 wrestling room, I believe he would’ve been an All-American multiple times.

    Folkstyle wrestling would grow exponentially if the kids were able to suit up like that.

    As an aside, I wrestled Pedro in college.
    Yeah, I meant nothing but respect, but see now I worded my post poorly. I believe he was an All-Ivy wrestler and a Judo World bronze medalist in the same year.
