I don't want to offend anyone, but it seems to me like the BJJ/submission aspect of MMA has been phased out, and now you have American Wrestlers, well-versed in kickboxing, slugging it out in standup or ground 'n' pounding. This is very different from what the Gracies developed in the early twentieth century. However, MMA is the original art of Gracie Jiu-jitsu, sport jiu-jitsu came later! So how do BJJ people think about the change of emphasis? Me being a former wrestler, I am quite happy that the sport that I trained in has a reputation for being the best 'style'. I always thought wrestling was a great sport. My question to you is, is BJJ dead? Now that everyone knows how not to get traingled or armlocked, has MMA been reduced to wrestlers who punch and kick? I'm not saying either art is bad, I just want to know other peoples' opinions. Me, I only watch UFC DVDs when they come out at blockbuster.
