Its good sometimes, but during the 90s and early 2000s the bbj guys were really limited themselfs imo because they were always wanting to pull guard, the ones I did ground work with anyway.

It used to bother me because they thought it was the best way to fight on the ground because of Gracie. It has its good points though.

These days seems to have changed quite a bit and evened out with more throws and sweeps.
