I even hear Joe Rogan get really excited when he witnesses some Judo throws in action.
Judo is useless. So's karate and all of them real martial arts. When's the last time you actually seen a blocked puch?? or a chop??? Boxing, Wrestling and Muay Tai, and submission fighting is where it's at

Let's Bang!

Judo is useless? Karo has done well in his career. Yoshido has done very well. A loss to crocop sure, but wand has one 2 and just as quick. I'd say a olypic class judo has just as good takedown and takedown defense as wrestling. Plus well versed in submission. Triangle choke in judo Sankaku jime. Key lock in judo ude garame. Rear naked choke in judo Hadaka jime. The list goes on so i wouldn't say usless.

i'd rather be well versed in Judo takedowns than wrestling ones. wrestling ones require to you jump into harms way while judo throws allow for a finese sort of throw.

wrestlers use muscle
judo practitioners use style

look at PRIDE, there's always a good match of strikes and sub wins, but in the UFC... subs are going the way of the dodo!
Totally agree, word for word.

DAMN... I was looking for this thread! I for one used to always believe grappling was better! If you knew your technigue and holds... no matter how big or strong the "brawler... kicker... puncher" was... you could have him (OR HER?... OR IT?) in a hold and they cannot get ouf it! They could pass out... tap... or be in great pain! I've been watching UFC for a while now... and I hate to say it... but I don't think Grapplers can get it done anymore! I hate to say it... but those guys who knock you out tend to be the ones who get it done... and I've been a follower and a fan of grappling for years... 'it's so sad!'
