The gracies have shown the world the effectiveness of BJJ and Sakuraba has shown the effectiveness of submission wrestling. Which style do you think is better in mix martial arts. Judge by using these catagories. 1. effective grappling 2. Submission holds 3. Submission escapes 4. being in the guard(on the bottom) IMO I think submission wrestling is better in effective grappling, and submission escapes. BJJ and sub wrestling are about even in submission holds and I think BJJ is better in being in the guard.
