    I was surfing around last night and came across USA Jiu-Jitsu (About The USA Jiu Jitsu Organization). What's the opinion of the BJJ community of this group? Do you think a non profit governing body will work as far as standardizng rules and making tournaments less expensive?

    I'm still strongly against the "goal" of getting BJJ into the Olympics.

    No, I have no problem with exposure. I just don't want the sport/martial art to be ruined or watered down.

    Here's some of my posts from other threads so that I don't have to rehash it...

    I agree, same with MMA being introduced into the olympics. Just leave both where they are :)
