    I respect Greg more than any other trainer in the game right now, but what exactly is his style of jiu jitsu? I forget what it is called. Did he just give it his own name for fun? Or is there a major contrast in his style with regular established jiu jitsu?

    He originally called his style "scientific street fighting" or something like that. And then renamed it Gaidojutsu because it sound cooler. Basically no gi jiu jitsu, mixing in judo, and wresting.

    Why did he name his art gaydojutsu. He must of known that people would take the piss.

    If a friend asks what new martial art you are doing, what are you going to say back to him and be taken seriously.

    Gaidojutsu is wrestling with judo locks, created in 1992 by Greg Jackson. Afterwards, he upgraded it by adding kickboxing. After UFC 1, he noticed efficiency of bjj and reality of fighting in mma. He studied both mma and bjj and added it into Gaidojutsu. He taught his Gaidojutsu as self defense system although his students kept going to mma events. Jackson taught common people and law enforcement officials until 2000 when he turned his academy into MMA school.

    Jackson's guys aren't really expert groundfighters because of his style. His guys who are good groundfighters(GSP,Nate Marquadt,etc..) learned it elsewhere. Jackson's forte is stand up and planning,imo.

    O rly? Name me a dude at Jackson's who is an awesome groundfighter and only trains Gaidojitsu. GSP trains wrestling and is a Gracie Barra BJJ blackbelt. Marquadt is a BJJ Blackbelt. Rashad Evans was an award winnning college wrestler. Cerrone maybe? I don't know his grappling background.

    If thats all it takes to start your own style, (and it pretty much is when you look at the history of many other styles) I should start my own lol.

    The problem is though, Id like to know what in the hell im doing first.
