    HUH? I dont understand the post. Please explain. I don't see much about the Gracie only to mention Maeda who did compete in cacc events.

    Actually I retract my statement, it appears Helio fought a couple of cacc wrestlers that ended in draws. Of course he was 88lbs and they were 400+lbs (end sarcasm)

    4 posts to turn it into a BJJ vs. CACC debate.

    Not bad.

    Exactly,
    But you can see how it was where ti began yet again. Besides if it were not for BJJ and MMA we might not be talking about cacc. The contribution BJJ has made to CACC is important and cannot be overlooked.

    I just dont feel that this thread should be ruined by polarization when it is clear the systems share some common history.

    Everyone, from everywhere, likes to scrap and try to break each other's bones. We're all friends.

    I'm interested in this book too

    Great quote from Kamal Shalorus on the back of that book. Sums up my fighting philosophy ie it all starts with wrestling.

    Finished reading the Erik Paulson Rough and Tumble book over a week ago and I read it a second and third time. Very cool and makes me proud to be an American wrestler.

    Is there anything on Ad Santel, from the little I've been able to read about the man, he truly was an awesome fighter. He basically was the Kodokan's target for many years.

    I find everything that Eric Paulson ads to the collective pool of submission grapling knowledge to be useful. Look forward to reading his work.

    Yes. I had never heard of the guy before and I learned alot about him as there is a section on him in the first half of the book. The coolest part of that book for me was the Living Legends section on these tough old carny guys.

    Can anyone give a rough description of the book?

    Is it a history lesson or is it more of a technique book?

    There are a couple reviews on the book in the stickied CACC thread at the top of the grappling section. Starts on page 322 of that thread and some CACC enthusiasts talk about the book.

    What always impresses me is the length and sheer number of rounds with less rules than we currently have.

    When you read what Kimura went through went fighting Santana, its hard to believe human beings can undergo such punishment.
