    ok...training in just a straight up art, not cross training, and i DO cross train although i am primarily cacc and i just learn bjj from friends and stuff, which do you guys think is the better out of the two, not to make a war or anything but i have to say, for mma cacc honestly seems better, look at all these japanese phenoms or study cacc and they are awesome on the ground, they are less passive and don't just choose to be bottom...thoughts?

    To rate one art better then another I believe is hard to do since all tyes of fighting have something to offer. In BJJ there are several holds which are useless in MMA due to a lack of a Gi on your opponent. But to never train in BJJ is to miss out on many tehcniques and the details of how they are applied. I will say that I will always take the top position over the bottom. The guard is the best defensive postion from the bottom.

    Is CACC a separate and distinct art form?

    Well, your opinion proves that you don't regularly do BJJ. Jiu Jitsu guys don't 'choose' to be bottom, but they can fight from there. Generally, in BJJ, the stop is still an advantageous position.

    i wasn't really suggesting that they do, but you have to admit that they seem to "choose" to go there more often than other grappling forms, it can't be denied that a fair amount of bjj guys jump guard in grappling matches, and i'm not even puting anything against that either, and like i said in my first post, i don't rate one over the other, which is why i cross train, and the first grappling art i trained in was bjj although it was only a little under a year, it was enough time to see that while yes, top is favored, they do choose to play bottom game more often than other arts...but i was just making this thread for the sake of seeing opinions, but i stated in my first post that i really do think of them equally...i wasn't trying to give the impression of being one sided on the subject, sorry if i came off that way ^_^

    Look at the ADCC results last year. 5 out of 6 of the men's divisions were won by BJJ guys.
    And in BJJ people develop an affinity for one or the other position but still practice all.

    I'm a natural top guy but spend most of my time starting on the bottom to improve my skill there.
