Paging Mr Fooks....Mr Micheal Fooks...
hey mate - sorry - just got back from the Will/Machado Nationals + Rigan seminar, so been off line. PM box is cleared.
wrt to everything in BJJ being in judo I believe the standard response is gogoplata no? I don't have more than a passing knowledge of judo but my impression is that while it's great (and there's a reason it's the standard respnse to the "what should I do" question on RMA) it's not as living as BJJ- where new techniques and strategies are being devleoped all the time. Whereas half guard used to be a last ditch attempt to stop the pass, there's now a dizzying array of attacking options. X-guard also comes to mind. The sheer volume of what's around in BJJ today that wasn't there even 4 years ago is boggling. Bravo's stuff comes to mind as well.
Good to see you back on this board bob.
