Not much needs to be said about the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the Gracie familiy. Obviously their version of Jiu Jitsu has proven to be one of the most effective methods of fighting on the ground. It has also maintained it's relevancy into modern times while many martial arts have not maintained the importance or level they once did. Even still BJJ is at the heart and soul of MMA competition. Many people think of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as violent and brutal, and while of course it can be, the truth is it is very technical. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can also enable a smaller person to defeat a larger person.

No, I am Spartacus.

And this thread reeks of Spamicus.
