The most important one is that there is a new breed of great BJJ fighters out there. This new generation has been brewing for some time, a few years ago it seems, the tide began to change. This is no to say that the previous generations were not exciting or anything, but the new guys (and some of them are not so new) fight all the time, fight to win and fight against all odds and against anyone.The last few BJJ Worlds have been a showing grounds for these new guns. BJJ fighters like Roger Gracie, Ronaldo ‘Jacare’, Marcelo Garcia, Leo Vieira, Xande Ribeiro, ‘Terere’, Kyra Gracie, Leticia Ribeiro, Leka Vieira and many others have been battling each other and all of the best without fear and always going for it. In the 2005 ADCC many of them were joined by another group of fighters from BJJ and other grappling arts, like Jon Olav Einemo, Jake Shields, Frank Trigg, Megumi Fuji, all fighting each other under sometimes adverse conditions like injuries etc all with one purpose in mind: ‘To test themselves against the best and to win by submission!’In ADCC 2003 we saw many athletes compete injured and give it their all; ‘Terere’ fought with separated ribs, Chris Brown with a cut on his head, etc. In ’05, there were Leozinho took of a cast of a foot that wasn’t healed with 3 broken bones and ligament damage to fight. There was Einemo fighting with a partially torn pectoral muscle, Saulo Ribeiro with severely injured ankle all fighting their hearts out. Shieds fought two of his matches after having his elbow hyperextended against Earle! But it was more than just physical courage, many of the fighters threw caution to the wind and were going for the kill! Take Xande Ribeiro for example; in his absolute matches against Roger and Garcia, he had a triangle and a few good positions against his opponents, but rather than play cautious, Xande went for it and ended up being submitted. In the past that would not have been the norm, but these days, the fighters want to go for it and to finish. Roger Gracie, defends the family name and puts it on the line against the best in the World. Jacare had Visa problems nad could only leave Brazil the night before the event. After flying for 14 + hurs, he arrived at LAX and went directly to the mat where he fought 8 matches in 2 days winning his weight and taking 2nd in the Absolute. Same goes for Roger, Jacare, Galvao, Jake Shields, Cameron Earle, Werdum and too many others to be named. The point of my ‘editorial’ is that Grappling is in very good hands now and tournaments will be more and more exciting when these fighters compete and lead others by example. What we the fans have to do is to support these fighters by attending the events they compete in. With greater attendance, more promoters wil be encouraged to follow ADCC’s example and have prize money so these guys can make a decent living doing what they do and entertaining us and teaching us about courage and commitment in the process!’Kid Peligro Caique Jiu-Jitsu Presents the 2nd South Bay Open Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Tournament 10 a.m., Saturday, June 25th, 2005, Torrance, CA.
