    We're not talking about smashing faces, Fin. This isnmt about MMA. we're talking about other grapplig arts. Bjj, wrestling, etc.
    And frankly, although I respect that MMA is not for everyone, I get a little tired of it being so demonized. Mma is not the problem, nor is it really what the IJF is responding to. So talking about it here, IMHO, is less about the issue and more taking another opportunity to take a dig at MMA.
    SO, may we please go back to discussing the IJF? What about BJJ or wrestling is a "threat" to them?

    In its infancy, IIRC, judoka willingly and frequently had mathes with other styles, to show its effectiveness. Thegracies, love them or hate trm, were also quite prolific with this. Both gained popularity and increased exposure through those chanels, and the IJF is taking the opposite approach.
