Great post, as usual, Pete.

Like I said I'm not up for a giant discussion on it, but it's worth noting that Helio Gracie's own book on Jiu-Jitsu is reportedly 50-70% standup self-defense (haven't read it myself). He is also reported to have said of cage fighting, "that's not my jiu-jitsu".

Sounds kinda familiar - I guess that's the price anybody pays for founding a style.
