Why does this guy love sucking MMA and Wrastlin' cock so much? I feel like every video he's put up is just him explaining how MMA, K-Boxing and Wrestling is the solution for anything related to combat sports.

Here's the whole video:
>bro judo sucks because the two judokas dont waste time fucking around on the ground instead of getting back up trying to score an ippon so it has a bad scoring system
>bro judo sucks against wrestling because every wrestler will just use double legs and they cant do hip throws good (even though can)
>bro judo sucks against bjj because they dont scramble on the ground to get a pin
>bro judo sucks in irl street fightz because they'll take their coat off and theyll just get back up every time you throw them, also every body in a street fight is a professional counter attacker to any judo throws so youll fall on your face and knees
>bro judo sucks in mma because... well it just does okay!
>thanks 4 watching please watch my 30 other videos on wrestling, boxing and mma

It's like he doesn't understand when you throw someone in Judo you're supposed to be in position to pin them, not fucking scramble and try to fight for positioning. His whole view is like trying to put football against tennis or air hockey and say how football's point scoring system and techniques don't work.

Anything you can do to make nogi judo work is against the rules dipshit. You can totally still get the right grips to do throws but you would need to be allowed to grab skin. Even on fit/muscular people you can dig your fingers in and bunch up enough skin to throw someone but you would immediately get DQd. You can't grab at the throat, the clavicle, or near the kidneys where you can bunch up the love handles. No clawing action allowed at all. Anything you could grab, you can't. So thanks for pointing out that nogi judo is too violent for ufc captain obvious.

It discovered the triangle choke, kneebar and co-discovered the heel hook while a japanese judoka was developing it with a student that is claimed to be a bjj practitioner from brazil. There was a book written in 1905 called jiujitsu vs wrestling where a prominent judoka and prominent wrestler at the time share moves, they say a lot of the pins are very much the same, but when the judoka showed the armbar the wrestler mocked it saying something like, “I cant see how someone would hold my arm down if I just curled it” not an exact quote but still.

Judo, wrestling, BJJ, whatever you train, so long as it's a type of wrestling/grappling that requires live practice and utilizing leverage & technique, it's a non-bullshit style.

This is the dumbest thread I've seen in a long while. I can list every fucking grappling style of its weaknesses like competitive judo not allowing leg attacks anymore and not allowing more groundwork/submissions or Greco-Roman not having leg attacks as well. Or BJJ doing butt scooting and not giving more points for takedowns/throws/trips.

No style will be 100% complete whether striking or grappling. It's why cross-training is a must and you take the best elements for your own use.

I don't deify martial arts founders but I have nothing but the upmost respect for Jigoro Kano. The dude took all the various techniques of Jujutsu styles, preserved them, and applied them to be tested as safe as possible. No Judo means no BJJ or Sambo (at least how we know it).

Couldn't believe how the dude went "what if i just zip up the jacket". Nigga a judoka can still grab a handful of that jacket and use it as a makeshift lapell no problem. He can also just grip collar, shoulder, elbow, neck, no problem also. The better argument would be about wrist control if anything.

There are 2 main lineages of Submission Grappling:

- Judo which in itself spawned off BJJ and Sambo

- Catch-as-catch-can wrestling which was partially derived from the Indo-Persian wrestling of Pehlvani which has submissions and holds from Malla Yuddha as well as a synthesis of the folk wrestling variations in Britain and Ireland

BJJ and Sambo also took from Catch. Mitsuyo Maeda competed in CACC tournaments and most likely incorporated lessons learned from it and later George Gracie (the forgotten brother) cross-trained with Catch guys in Brazil and even competed against the founder of Luta Livre (Brazilian style of catch without pins), Euclydes Hatem. Takeo Yano, one of the main pioneers of BJJ's development also competed and trained alongside Hatem.

Sambo's leglocks were from Catch which was well documented. And the obvious judo influence is there (along with other grappling styles that the Russians were exposed to).

There's instances of Catch wrestlers trouncing Judoka as well as Judoka trouncing Catch wrestlers. In the end, it's all grappling and only a fucking moron would vaunt the superiority of 1 interpretation of wrestling over the other. All grapplers and styles interacted and cross-fertilized throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. This is still evident today with how US BJJ infused collegiate in their matwork.

So in Brazil, you have 2 styles that were created from the 2 main lineages of Submission Grappling I listed.

With BJJ, Judo was the primarily element with a dash of Catch here and there. With Luta Livre, it was the inverse, Catch wrestling was the base with later infusions from Judo & BJJ.

the facts are in at this point
bjj is judo, it's not and never will be a distinct art
they can choose to not follow kodokan guidelines but that doesn't change what it is because judo is THE WAY
there's a sport called brazilian jiujitsu, just like there's a sport we would call olympic judo, and there's kosen judo, and freestyle judo, but the art itself is judo all the same
the rules of the sport simply informs the areas you focus your training, it's impossible to be great at everything all at once so you need to pick something to start with
say people stayed in their prime health for 50 years and could really dedicate that time to training, the guy doing "judo" would start with his stand up first, the guy doing bjj would start with his newaza, and in 50 years time they'd be identical grapplers because they would've had enough time to master it all. The title you give yourself is just an expression of your specialty. Different routes headed towards the same peak.
and as judo is a WAY under the principles of minimum effort, maximum efficiency, and mutual welfare and benefit. BJJ still follows the same principles, it follows the way of judo and never deviated because it is judo.

I wish I could find the supply of copium pedro valente is huffing though, lmao his lies and story changes every time it gets challenged and people come with receipts

I'm far from a Gracie nuthugger and I loathe BJJ dickriders, but I disagree with this as well.

BJJ derived itself from judo groundwork and submissions but in a street fighting and Vale Tudo format. It dealt with dealing with boxing (the early Gracie and BJJ pioneers also cross-trained in boxing like a picture of the late Carlson Gracie Sr.) and strikes in general when closing the distance.

There was always Judo infusions throughout BJJ's historical development. It's well attested that not only did Japanese emigrants like Geo Omori, Takeo Yano, and the Ono brothers were instrumental in spreading newaza via judo, there were Brazilians who interacted with judoka like the Ezekiel choke (sode guruma jime) named after a Brazilian judoka who competed in the Olympitcs, Ezequiel Paraguassu.

Oswaldo Alves and George Mehdi both went to Japan and trained under legendary judoka like Masahiko Kimura and Isao Okano; both of whom knew newaza quite well. In fact, if you look at Okano's Vital Judo Grappling Techniques book, it's very similar to BJJ ground-fighting. When they returned to Brazil, they transmitted what they learned.

Even the late Rolls Gracie Sr. cross-trained in judo (as well as sambo and freestyle wrestling) to develop his ground-game. The triangle choke was popularized from the guard after Rolls saw a judo book that depicted it.

However, what really differentiates BJJ from Judo is the transitions. People always harp about Position before Submission in what defines BJJ. I disagree. In order to go from A to C, the B is essential and the way the Brazilians developed it is what makes it distinctly their contribution.

Judo did not test out concepts like ground-and-pound, dirty boxing, and other rough methods because it was against their cultural mindset and not how their fighting styles was. Even judo's atemi waza (which is sadly ignored) did not update itself to things like Muay cut kicks to the thighs/calves which can paralyze movement.

I think you're agreeing with me
as I said the sport informs the way it's practiced. the supposed bjj practitioners weren't doing anything proprietary, they were studying and using judo just in a different environment

and of course its impossible to see what the day to day training room was really like but I would imagine 100 or more years ago they were practicing atemi waza more too since this stuff predates things like kickboxing and even karate for that matter and those skills had to come from somewhere

Continued:

The Gracies, the Japanese emigrants, and Brazilians who learned early judo were in constant challenge matches throughout the early half of the 20th century. This gave them invaluable experience in testing out what techniques would work and how to address the context of struggling with a guy raining down rabbit punches and elbows as you struggle to get a grip on him. Hence, the Transition is what is missing in Judo compared to BJJ.

The old school BJJ actually had a lot of stand-up grappling and self-defense techniques very akin to judo's goshin jutsu. And of course, takedowns and throws compared to modern butt-scooting. Whatever range of combat and what type of weapons (fist, kick, elbow, knee) is being utilized by an opponent, BJJ honed itself to know how to defend one's self when setting themselves up for the Positioning so that they can jockey for the opportunity to slap on a joint-lock or choke. Meanwhile, while their opponent is bitterly resisting in-between the positioning and submission phases, they can always de-transition back to a course of better advantage for their safety so they can seek the opportunity to get their back or catch an exposed limb.

I do agree on many points. Even Deoclecio Paulo, a disciple of Oswaldo Fadda, one of the major non-Gracie red belts who advocated foot-locks was quoted in saying that the only difference of BJJ and Judo were the rule sets.

I'm just being nuanced that BJJ took the newaza and submission aspect of Judo, commercialized the hell out of it and shaped it for the rough-and-tumble environment of Brazil's machoism.

What frustrates me about Judo is that somebody needs to revamp the atemi-waza curriculum and make sure it's practiced. Yeah judo as a sport is primarily going to be a focus, but the self-defense aspects shouldn't be neglected. Nihon adapted Muay Thai and mixed it with Karate, Kenpo, & Boxing (all of which are non-Japanese origin as well since the first 2 are from Okinawa which was its own thing) to create Japanese Kickboxing. And they've produced some phenomenal Kickboxers (and Nak Muays since a lot of J-kickboxers go to Thailand to compete) so they incorporate stuff like chap koh (Muay clinching/neck-wrestling with knees and elbows); things judo never encountered before as well as shin kicks which inflict more damage than ones utilizing the foot, instep, heel, balls, and toes.

the way it all works out for me is
judo is the martial art
submission grappling is a skill within the martial art
BJJ is a sport variant of judo
you can do submission grappling without any of the judo framework, and that's what guys in MMA do by the way, they aren't doing BJJ. They might be learning to grapple from someone holding BJJ rank but they aren't really doing it, they're just learning some skills from it
and you can do go BJJ with no formal BJJ training too in any division you want. College wrestler? go sign up for expert division in BJJ, you're allowed to do that, in fact you're expected to do that. Which I think is the proof that BJJ is the defined by competition rules and not the art

more and more people are rejecting the politics and the lies, and I give credit to a lot of brazilians refusing to wear that red bar on their belts which becomes more common. Declaring themselves as students of the art holistically, not this weird niche variant of it
if you get your black belt from murillo at unity you receive a plain black mizuno belt. If you want to wear it to compete in IBJJF you need to wrap white athletic tape around one end because they demand the bar, not the art.
I reject the bar also and just use a plain belt. I'm never going to get a certified kodokan judo black belt because I really don't want to go through the whole process, and I could register my rank with IBJJF because my gym is now chartered with them but fuck that, I don't need to pay a fee to some random assholes to have them recognize me.
I would consider myself a student of the art of judo even though I'm not officially moving through their track

Prime Fedor was truly a force of nature. When he went to the Netherlands for 3 months to train under Johan Vos, he learned invaluable techniques. I mean look at his fight with Cro Cop; you had Fedor launch a high kick while CC went into the guard; that match is the quintessential essence of what MMA is.

Before Fedor injured his back and declined, he would use that overhand right (and later Dutch-style low kicks and knees thanks to Vos) to chip away at opponents and then close the distance. He was quite tactical and explosive in RINGS and PRIDE.

Because get this, different sports focus on different things.

That's how stupid you sound. I love MMA because you can combine everything from various styles but the individual rule sets and competition for grappling and striking have their own audiences. MMA striking does not have the caliber of boxing footwork, combos, and head defense because competitors have to worry about takedowns as well as kicks and clinching. Greco-Roman and Freestyle is about control and executing takedowns to have the opponent out of bounds or holds on the mat.

Judo, Sport Sambo and BJJ (barring nogi obviously) all require a form of jacket which makes them distinct in sport. Judo has throws & sweeps as well as pins, chokes, and armlocks. Sport Sambo allows everything Judo has (but omits chokes) while retaining leglocks. BJJ allows every type of joint-lock, choke, and pain compliance moves but pins don't count (though you can always modify them for a submission if done properly) and don't score much on the throws/takedown aspect.

Except martial arts change and adapt to the times. 1950s BJJ has none of the extensive guardwork and sweeps that modern BJJ has. Muay Thai originally allowed groin shots up until the 1980s and in the 1960s/1970's the rules didn't allow except for a few seconds in clinching.

What some of us are discussing is updating Judo (and I want leg attacks to be brought back) since its striking application is hardly practiced and it only utilized 1800s Jujutsu atemi.

As much as I dislike Rorion and BJJ propaganda and posturing, Royce did get handpicked opponents when Gerard Gordeau was a VERY dangerous Kyokushin karateka (he was only toted as a savateur since he competed in it) and Ken Shamrock was a legit catch wrestler who underestimated Royce (even admitted it in his autobiography).

Yeah there could've been others in 1993 and 1994 that had they competed, Royce would've definitely been in trouble and even defeated. But while the early UFCs were meant to showcase BJJ to the US and international audiences, it also vindicated what previous generations of grapplers like Gene Lebell talked about how groundfighting and submissions were overlooked in favor of striking. There are even judo articles in Black Belt magazine from the 1970s that comment on how newaza was being neglected in favor of spectacular throws; so people weren't completely in the dark about how vital grappling on the ground was.

And even against fellow grapplers like judoka and traditional Jujutsuka Remco Pardoel who was several inches taller and heavier.

This may sound weird, but what got me on him is his complaint video about the pensador from Keysi fighting or DNA or whatever. Now hear me out. In his video, he describes how the pensador sucks because it's not as good as deflecting punches from the front as having your hands out in a traditional guard, right. But I got curious and went researching about it (had never heard of it before), and I found out that's not the rationale for the pensador. If you go to the source, the pensador is designed to protect your head from attacks from all angles; as in, it assumes you're surrounded and being attacked from the front, back and sides. Which is obviously a situation where the traditional guard would not be as useful and the more instinctive half-fetal pose is actually helpful. Basically he was judging it from outside of its context, saying that it wasn't good for dueling and therefore is bad overall. I don't know if the pensador is actually good at defending against multiple attackers, but at least it needs to be judged on that basis. And if I found that in five minutes on youtube, why didn't he?

Yeah nothing is new under the sun. Even ancient Pankration had toe kicks that the Chinese and Okinawans utilize.

Jujutsu and later Judo however codified and organized various submissions and holds that they had for centuries and later picked up stuff from Japanese who globe-trotted and were exposed to other styles. Cross-pollination is a must.

In the late 1800's to early 1900's, it was the golden age of various wrestlers from different countries competing against one another. Mitsuyo Maeda did catch wrestling as well as challenge matches utilizing judo. Yukio Tani did the same in Britain.

Indian pehlwani like Gobor Goho and the Great Gama showcased how surprisingly effective their wrestling was when they defeated Westerners.

This was the age of Sorakichi Matsuda, Ad Santel, Frank Gotch, Ed "Stranger" Lewis, Johannes Josefsson, Stanislaus Zbyszko, Imam Bux, Cour-Dereli, Ahmed Madrali, Yusuf "Terrible Turk" Ismail. All these guys and countless others helped shape what would be submission grappling. Western, MENA, South Asian, and Japanese, grappling is indiscriminate. The truth is found when you engage against your fellow wrestler and know first-hand what sort of man he is and what shaped them as they struggle against one another.

It's all wrestling under the sun; different labels and approaches but in the end, we all throw each other to the ground and/or roll to secure a favorable position for submission. We're supposed to be better than this dick-waving and shit-posting.

Wait, what? This is news to me. BJJ used to distance themselves from Catch and Luta Livre in the past because they always toted they took ancient Japanese Jujutsu and refined it. Catch was associated with worked matches because of pro rasslin and Luta Livre was looked down upon as a low class sport.

The funny thing is, both George and Helio trained in Catch. Oswaldo Gracie was also reported to have been involved in Catch as well.

Same here. I'm also an amateur historian and I like the Gilded Age of the 1890's to June 1914 (before World War One broke out). The French called 1871 (the end of the Franco-Prussian War) to 1914 (right before WWI began) as La Belle Époque. The advent of steamship lines really allowed greater ease of international travel and that's why so many ideas and peoples were exchanged at a pace unheard of before.

I did folkstyle wrestling in high school. I never did judo myself but I recognize it as a wrestling that has handles (i.e. the gi). BJJ is submission grappling that either utilizes the gi or without it. Sambo is a mix of Judo and other disciplines that the Soviets finely tuned as a battlefield art and as a combat sport. Sumo, Mongolian Bokh, Indian pehlwani all fascinate me because I recognize the technical applications despite never partaking in those sports. As grapplers, we're all one big clan; distantly related because since the dawn of humankind, people have grappled with one another in sport or self-defense.

In the end, no matter which grappling style wins, everybody comes out the victor because leverage + technique + body mechanics is proven time and time again and we can all learn from each other. Only McDojo black belts and Bullshido con artists who've never done a bear crawl or ripe climbing in their lives or taken a punch (I do boxing) talk shit about each other. With grappling, we prove it on the mats.

BJJ is gi based as much as judo is
You don't rank up in BJJ without wearing the gi, and the entire rule set of nogi grappling is different
This goes to an earlier point about BJJ trying to claim things retroactively, like ADCC for example which is what launched the nogi trend. That's not a bjj competition, its a grappling competition
BJJ guys were still showing up to fights with a gi on well after 1998

Yeah BJJ historically always toted on how the gi was an essential part of their art: because it costs money to purchase it as well as using it as a weapon against opponents (like Royce's gi choke against Ken Shamrock). That's why BJJ was typically the sport of the middle and upper classes in Brazilian society while Luta Livre was looked as a poor man's sport since it didn't require it.

I'm no defender of Gracie or BJJ wankery, but at least the IBJJF embraced no-gi championship formats. BJJ constantly adapts and adds from other grappling styles and formats. ADCC did indeed popularize the concept of no-gi submission grappling to the masses; BJJ was smart enough to capitalize on it.

And it's just people always behind trying to play catch up, but the time "the masses" start to get good at something the pros have moved on to something else. The result is a lot of mediocre to bad grapplers left in the wake of this because nobody is spending enough time to actually get good at anything. they get halfway decent and then drop it for something else.

It's like Gordon said a while ago people are just now starting to get good at the leglocks we stopped doing 5 years ago

They even omit George Gracie who was actually the best fighter out of the 5 original brothers, but they had a serious falling out due to opinions on competing against Luta Livre/Catch as well as money issues.

You're right that only autists care about "OMG! IT'S NOT KIMURA IT'S UDE-GARAMI THAT SUPERIOR NIPPONIC DESU CREATED!"

He was a malignant racist, but also completely delusional because he wasn't even white himself

Helio was an integralist. I'm not super well versed in Brazilian politics, but from what I've been able to find, Integralists were basically fascists but not necessarily racist, the name itself refers to integration of all races and ethnicities into a single cohesive society
He also had at least one notable black student, Valdemar Santana

But on a personal level he most definitely was a racist, everyone who knew him said as much
Explicitly no blacks were allowed in the gracie academy

I know quite a few judoka who have absolutely zero cross training who would still absolutely demolish this nerd.
