    I studied Dan Zan Ryu Jujitsu for a number of years and am now have been studying BJJ for about 3 years. I was wondering if anyone else on this board also has any DZR experience and what you think of the ground aspect of the art?
    I was never a fan of the major kata offered in DZR but i did get a solid foot hold in Judo throws and some ground techniques (triangle, lapel chokes, head and arm choke, and armbars). I also found the lack of randori to be upsetting.

    Didn't you ask this same question a week or two ago? Most people aren't going to have much experience with an upstart MA...

    I have a little bit of experience with DZR. My Sensei was pretty legit on the ground, although probably wouldn't be too much of a challenge for a high level BJJ guy. However, I really liked the judo and aikido elements to it. I think it's a fun art, but I didn't really get into the kata or the massages that some do.
