    Gi vs No Gi

    Even in MMA, training in the gi is gonna help tremendously. the no gi exclusives have yet to win a title, yet if you look at the current MMA champions (especially UFC champs) you'll see a trend of Gi users. BJ Penn, GSP, Anderson Silva, Nogueira, etc are all gi users, and all but one is a BJJ...

    [BJJ] Colors of gis?

    The IBJJF allows Blu, black, and white. but any other competiton allows just about any color. Some schools (Royler lineage, Rickson lineage, etc) only allows White gis with a single left lapel patch, and sometimes a back patch. check out this site for offical...

    Ninja: the shadow warrior book?

    The book is by Joel Levy. anybody read this book? I have it, but am apprehensive to actually read it. I glanced at the text and saw quotes from Hatsumi. so once again, has anyone read it?

    Who competes, and in what?

    I compete in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competitions, Gi and Nogi, but I'd like to do Judo comps.

    Japanese and Brazillian Jiu Jitsu differences?

    I wasn't patronizing you I was explaining, Like I have to dozens of other posters over the years, that your question was as non-descriptive as can get. let me tell you a little about brazilian Jiu-jitsu, and a little about Japanese jujutsu, as I study both. Japanese jujutsu is a common name...

    Japanese and Brazillian Jiu Jitsu differences?

    This topic has certainly been driven into the ground. I would reccomend a search. because there is so much opinion with this subject. actually, wikipedia search would probably be your best bet. when you say "japanese" Jujutsu, you are including roughly 750 different schools of training. some 200...

    What happened 2 Vitor Belfort??

    He did pretty well right after that incident. He lost a battle to couture, but (in my opinion) dominated the first 2 rounds of the Tito fight.

    TUF5 Finale Vids (Pulver vs Penn / Diaz vs Gamburyan )

    He said in on the SavageDogShow that he gave up alcohol, and realized he needs to grow up. Randy couture also played a big role in his giving up alcohol and taking training more seriously. He is only 28 years old. he hasn't even peaked yet. He wants to keep 7% body fat, and move to 170. if that...

    TUF5 Finale Vids (Pulver vs Penn / Diaz vs Gamburyan )

    I was very impressed with BJ. this fight looked so one sided when compared to the first BJ/pulver fight. that fight was pretty even. this one...not so much. I picked Diaz from the very beginning to win the whole thing. I heard his name announced and picked him. world class fighter. gamburyan...

    Ufc 72

    No your not alone. I couldn't care less about griffin. annoying. why they keep pushing him is beyond me. put him against a true, well rounded guy like Babalu and see him actually win, THEN I will give him the respect I am supposed to show him. But I still think Okami will beat Franklin. I see...

    Who's the dominant champ in ufc right now

    yeah, its one of those "anything can happen" situations. I think even GSP thought he would kill serra. but GSP is one of those fighters who matches what there opponent is doing, while Hughes just powers them down.

    one hour roll!!!

    One hour of rolling is exhausting. I rolled for 17 minutes with another blue belt without a tap and had a hard time standing afterward. same with a competition match I had, went only 7 minutes, but it was 150%

    Who's the dominant champ in ufc right now

    I am a huge Sherk fan, but I also think Franca is highly underrated. There hasn't been a champ like Tito or Hughes in a while. It could be because the competition is getting so intense, but I think it has a lot to do with the camps. nobody is stationary anymore. everybody trains with...

    also, not to attack you, but in all honesty, you are claiming all of andrew's techniques are crap, but your MMA career is what...? 3 submission losses and a KO loss?

    not really. if someone tries to crossface you from here, lay back with it, with the leg, and wrench away.

    Liddel vs Jackson (vid)

    Karo put on an amazing show. that Harai was so good. :) I didn't want to count out Liddell, because he is the best of the best, but Rampage...c'mon...the guy is a monster. However, his weakness is good grapplers. I think Randy could put him down, babalu, and MAYBE tito, though he hasn't...

    MMA=Kickboxing and Wrestling? aka the demise of BJJ

    wow. if some people's idea of BJJ is just submissions....find a new school. I used to dwell on the idea of "new" a little less than 3 years ago, but I've gotten to the point to where "If I haven't seen it, its new to me".

    Sylvia vs. Couture

    I don't think he holds a black belt, but he has submitted black belts, and has a ton of experience. Randy couture recently showed great grappling ability against Jacare, so they are probably about even
