I have heard many BJJ guys discussing how technical BJJ is and they appear to have a belief that wrestling does not share an equal amount of technical understanding. This has really confused me, I understand that in the sport of wrestling the importance of strength and conditioning is increased. However this does not mean technical ability is decreased. I am of the opposite opinion that wrestling includes not only more technical skills but is a lot more technical sport and is much harder to master technically. To compete in wrestling at a high level your technical ability needs to be on a scientific level. However because the standard of wrestling is much higher than BJJ's standard there is also increased fitness, strength and athletic ability of high level competitors. This should not be surprising because wrestling is a much older sport and is an Olympic sport. BJJ by comparison is just a baby and as yet has not even developed a proper world championships or any form of standardisation. I would advice in the future for BJJ practitioners not to be so arrogant with their claims of technical sophistication and to just enjoy their sport. Discuss.
