why? just why?
How can someone that was at the top of the grappling world 4 years ago not learn some of the new grappling guard, pass, etc (such as Aoki).
It seems that the basics stilll allowe you to be competitif in 2006 but to be dominant you need more than them.
this thread is not a critic. I am myself a basic Bjjer (in a sence that i do not learn the last sweep and last gogoplata coming right from Brasil)....
Just a thread to discuss this. and also are Japanase better at submission grappling than Brasilian..
it seems so.
