    Can't say I found anything peculiar with the interviewer, nothing weird to me. Ed West is a weird character though.

    I miss the days of written interviews

    Good journalism = transcript imo!

    also helps for searching/etc. Google does this for all their google talk videos etc.

    Nothing all that interesting. Basically says that just because someone does a submission or or something on the ground doesnt mean its jiu jitsu. He compares it to karate in the 80s, where if someone threw a punch or a kick, people automatically assumed it was karate, now if its anything on the ground, people automatically assume its jiu jitsu.

    according to video he trains catch, judo, and sambo.

    he trains with bjj guys and steals stuff from them but does not train bjj.

    So he is kinda a dbag that goes out of his way to say he does not train bjj.
    I cannot blame him as mma has proven how useless bjj is. (/sarcasm)

    lol, it is like a fighter going out of his way to say he trains every striking style except muay thai.

    Trained w/ Ed a lot. "Brown belt" under Frank Mir. Ed is actually a really cool guy and good instructor, he just hates Gi jiu jitsu, literally. But he is seriously awesome on the ground.

    Isn't it funny how so many no-gi guys hate the gi but love the belt part of the gi?

    didn't frank mir give a guy with like 3 years of experience a black belt. IIRC the guy had never won anything significant or even placed in a major competition.
