anyone else over the Gracies inventing everything?

Listened to a podcast the other week where Renzo is claiming they invented the Anaconda choke since Pride 2 and that the Gracies invented every single move, fair enough they layed the ground work but come on give credit where it's due. Thoughts?

I'm pretty sure they didn't invent the Kimura...

Eddie Bravo's submission of Royler from rubber guard was a victory for Gracie Jiu-Jitsu's time-honored techniques.

Are you sure you understood that podcast?

Renzo wasn't taking a shot at non-Gracies in it and claiming they invented everything, he was taking shots at Rorian's school. It is one of the only times the Gracie's have actually verbally fought like that in public.

Relson Gracie did an interview the week before and started it off.
Renzo went on there the next week and flipped his lid, though mostly at Rorian's school.
And finally Rener (Rorian's son) went on there the 3rd week and apologised to Renzo for any offense caused and offered his take.

Great fun to listen to it all :)
