    Default What the Gracies don't Want You to Hear

    Interesting article at BJEE.

    Enlightening. Roberto Pedreira and now, BJJ master hand Robert Drysdale are correcting the record as far as Brazilian Jiujitsu goes. Pedreira's book series, and the ongoing research at Global Training Report is must read information for all Judoka and BJJ-ka interested in the history of the art.

    No art has a pristine history, and there is always family laundry. Interesting side notes to a notable family that adopted a Japanese art and made it an internationally recognized Brazilian sport.

    Oh, certainly - We are also finding out "What Kano doesn't want you to hear" from the work of current scholars - great website here.

    Endlessly fascinating. All jujutsu.

    Thanks, great site! Skimmed and saved it for future closer reading. Was happy to see Lance Gatling's name on it. He was a regular here (and, I think, on Jujutsu-L) waaay back in the day.
