You know, the reason I said that "Just because every fight doesn't end in an armbar it doesn't mean that BJJ is any less important than before" is because that every practitioner is training BJJ now. And it's used for sweeps, and positioning far more than finishes there days. That's why I said it's more important than before, because you will get your shit choked out of you if you don't know your defences.
