And yes it is interesting you mentioned the Helio Gracie and Masahiko Kimura fight...this is the video of it.(it is very unclear)

YouTube - judo vs jujutsu
Yeah, BJJ is definitely good for learning leverage and it's applicable to all different styles of submission fighting. As far as I'm concerned, anyone who's looking to compete in MMA should learn BJJ, because it's going to come up eventually.

For those who don't know who's who in that video. Helio Gracie is the skinny one and Kimura is the one that gets the initial throw.
