    Would you say Shinya Aoki's grappling style resembles more of tenth planet jj than traditional bjj? I know he has trained with Bravo in the past, I don't know to what extent though.

    Aoki does use "unorthodox submissions" and the rubber guard very effectively. I'd train with him if I could (though I've heard he's a d!ck) but since going to Japan isn't a possbility, I was wondering if tenth plane jj would help me more towards my amateur mma fights (since no gi duh) than a regular bjj school?

    I dont think Aoki uses much of the 10th plannet system, he does play mission control, but from there, IIRC, I never saw him take the "paths" the 10th plannet guys should take.. I dont know, I dont think he has train that much with eddie either. Aoki is very very flexible, if you have tht kind of flexibility, while you are in guard, a high guard is pretty good to attack, his unorthodox style may come from yuki nakai more likely than from eddie's.

    how long have you been grappling by the way?

    edit: I just saw aoki twistering yuki yamamoto lol

    Pretty sure he just trains a branch of judo which is mostly newaza focused with a load of guys in japan.

    Can't remember the name of it.

    yeah aoki has only beat cans.... how long have you been watching mma? 1 year?

    back in 2009, everyone thought the best lightwegths were outside the UFC, and aoki was the ass kicker back then.

    dude has 44 fights, you would expect him to lose a couple, and his losses are to legit fighters.

    Aoki isn't even top 10 in the UFC. Give me a fucking break. His striking sucks and ya he's good on the ground but any top 10 UFC guy will beat his ass.

    You sound jealous, does he wear sexy pants more famously than you perhaps? Lol jk, in all seriousness, people saying Aoki sucks don't know much about fighting besides the UFC. He's beat legit guys, and losing to Gilbert Melendez in a cage by decision isnt anything to be ashamed about.

    How many people can land a leg lock on Eddie Alvares under his mount?
    And though i can name many other good fighters that Aoki has beaten, one can even use the "cans" as an example of his mastery. Even if they were cans... does that make them children unable to defend submissions? They're other grown men, who have extensive records, and have managed to make it as pro fighters, and he does things to them VERY FEW fighters in the UFC could.

    for some people, if you are not in the UFC you are can beater, totally disrespectful to some fighters.

    you mean fighters that were in lesser leagues like benson? like pettis? like carlos condit? like lawler?

    the elite NOW is in the UFC, and has been for a least the past 4 years or so, it hasnt always been this way... and just because you are fighting in One FC or some other league, doesnt mean you are a can, it could men you are not elite, which is no the same as to call you a can, which is how you are refering to all fighters fighting outside the UFC.

    No, his Judo background is just regular Judo, which he competed in while in school and after. He did use flying armbars a lot on Judo, but it's not like he came from some special made-up branch of Jddo like "Kosen" Judo.

    Yeah I knew that, just thought he regularly trained with a bunch of judo guys who didn't like the new rules.
