    a new name for us Brazilian Jiujitsu fighters... when one wrestles you are a wrestler, when one boxes you are a boxer, when one does Judo you are a Judoka. I get tired of saying such and such is a BJJ stylist or a BJJ practitioner or god forbid say Jiujitsu fighter... keyboard warriors unite and come up with something that works... some horrible suggestions from people I know.

    Rollers
    Jiujitsuers
    Brazas
    Lutadors
    B-jitsus

    If it took, in twenty years those who practice traditional grips and guard may be referred to as "orthodox jius."
