Was listening to Iain's podcast, and he referred to a Gracie Video about difference between Street vs Sport Jiu Jitsu. Its amazing the same scenarios/criticisms of TMA are now showing up in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and its members of the first family of BJJ thats explaining the difference. Just wanted to post the Gracie video, its quite interesting
"With the tournaments, rules and people want to compete in tournaments, they start to change so much that its becomes unrealistic. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, the one my father, my brothers, my family teach.......is a self defense style, geared towards the street fight so that you can defend myself on the street, not in a tournament, in trying to score points....who cares about points?"
