LuseFan Posted July 7, 2011 Report Share Posted July 7, 2011 Ok...so we've seen some guys that allegedly are amazing with their jitz walk into the cage against top guys, and seriously it seems most of these BJJ fighters lack a certain component vital to implementing their game plan. The takedown. What I find ironic about this is that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is more or less an offshoot of Judo. And if we've seen anything it's that if a judoka puts his mind to it, he can get some nasty takedowns or at least can clinch and trip guys down. So is BJJ straying so far from it's roots a good thing or a bad thing. Really it's best to say mixed bag....BJJ is a very valuable tool when the fight goes to the ground, but with the glut of skilled wrestlers able to take a man down and hold top over a BJJ guy, does anyone else think the focus of the training needs to change? Should more guys be cross training with Judo or Sambo to better implement the ground skills of BJJ, or maybe drop BJJ entirely and turn to either of these styles as a base to build up from?
