an interesting tidbit about brazilians

    Tue, 2007-01-16 21:08 — lorenzodamarith

    hello,

    appartently, many (possibly most of) bjj players in brazil started as judo guys. it seems they study judo as kids and then migrate to bjj. had no idea.

    anyone have an opinion about the "ideal skill progression" (start with this system, move on to this one, so on, so on)?

    judo to bjj seems natural. any other combinations really good? cambo seems to have a bit of everything, but not real clear on how they progress thier students through the system.

    thoughts? comments?

    thanks.

    thanks.

    This would include Carlos Gracie & Helio Gracie. That's what Maeda taught to them originally.

    he taught them a form of judo that was just developing in japan(cant remember name) it was all ground work, combined with catch wrestling and reg judo Ps he only taught Carlos

    yes it isnt un common for lil brazillians to start in judo but not all do some start in jj somedont do ne thing till theyre older also alot of bjj places dont really teach real lil kids many subs so its basically judo
    later just my 2 cents

    hello,

    is it true that at the camp it is all jiujitsu all day? causes one to wonder how much a body can take!!! hahahaha!!! sounds like a good deal. is it expensive? open to foreigners (those not in brazil already)? tried looking it up and found references to it, but no website for it. got a link?

    thanks.

    I saw a clip of Dan Camarillo performing a perfect osoto-gari in an mma match.

    Judo in Brazil is a very common sport for little kids. So it's common that a lot of people have done it before, not just bjj guys. I know, this is getting off the topic, sorry.

    Same goes for Japanese fighters, chances are you're gonna find swimmers, basebal players, ballet dancers etc that did judo before :)

    hello,

    it has also been said that many japanese fighters also have judo lurking in thier backgrounds. genkisudo, hayatosakurai, takanorigomi come to mind, though this is heresay. not familiar with the biographies of most fighters.

    thanks.
