It obviously must be worth visiting if we're all on it.

No disrespect intended, but it sounds like you were looking for an excuse to leave anyway.

Life goes on.

I'm happy to say I've never had to throw or dodge a punch in my 24 years.

My problems with BJJ.

1)Guard. Go ahead and expose your testicles to me, I won't do the same for you. The guard position is one of many common examples why BJJ is no better than Kendo for real encounters. The rules of engagment for Kendo leave them striking the strongest parts of the armor(ex:Helmet). This is at the very least not optimal. BJJ leaves their legs open as a means of keeping the person from passing guard. This is at the very least not optimal. To say that you can adapt your technique for a "real situation" is to say that you have been practicing wrong. Habits die hard. You can't change years of training magically for your ten second real fight.


I could be wrong, because I'm basing this off my Judo experience(but I figure it's probably close enough to be valid)... training from guard doesn't mean "okay, start a fight off in the guard position". I look at it more like "if you're unfortunate enough to be in this position, here's what you need to do to get out of it." In Judo, we never started from the guard, but rather one person was on the ground trying to fend off the attacker, while the other person tried to mount and choke.

My challenge to any BJJ person out there is to go to Japan and challenge a Shihan, or a Shihan anywhere else even. IF YOU CAN manage to "take it to the ground" before they break you, come let me know how you do even then. Ever wonder why the Gracies don't compete anymore?


They don't compete because they don't have to. As far as I know, they competed as much as they did to get their art out into the public eye as a promotional tool. They've established the need for a good ground game in their world, and now they can focus on teaching what they've learned.

There are going to be bad apples in pretty much every martial art, so using that as an argument against training BJJ isn't valid in my opinion. Training in BJJ isn't going to automatically make someone an #OOPS#. I imagine it's possible to train in that art and still keep the budo/ninpo mindset. Distancing, timing, and feel still play a huge part in the ground game.

Maybe a reason why people say BBT doesn't have much groundfighting is that their groups/dojos don't train it. Going to a place that specializes in groundwork(like a BJJ or some Judo dojos) will help because they'll be working solely on that skillset. I suppose a person could seek out the closest BBT instructor that teaches groundfighting, but it's probably more realistic for them to find a local jiu jitsu place.

Also, I don't see anything resembling a badmouthing of the Bujinkan from Mr. Weidman. He's been very respectful in his arguments, even if they go against the majority.

Just keep in mind that teachers also learn from students, and maybe you'll stop worrying.
