Could you clarify your question? It seems hard to distinguish from your previous question.

comment Luta Livre vs Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
BJJHeroes disagrees: luta livre has roots in catch wrestling, not Japanese jiujitsu.

Cool. What are luta livre competition rules—is it simply no time limit submission only?

comment Luta Livre vs Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
"Bjj banned...ankle lock[s] at all to all belts and divisions." — this is not true. Heel hooks, one specific kind of ankle/leg lock, are banned at all belts and divisions. Straight ankle locks are legal at all adult belt levels and toe holds are still legal for some divisions.

Do you mean to say that every concussion causes brain damage?

comment Aikido and Bulking Up?
And did Kron actually gain muscle with his described program? He has fought MMA and BJJ in the 170lb/77kg division for his entire career, dating back to his teens, and even if he cuts he doesn't cut much. So we're talking about someone who is athletic and well built, but not notably big or strong or muscular within his sports. Beyond that, I'd attribute his current build to doing BJJ through puberty more than bodyweight training.

comment Aikido and Bulking Up?
@Drakes How did the year off go? Did you fix your injuries? How big are you now—because being undersized and weak makes people more prone to injury, and maybe that's not the case anymore. Are you still trying to get bigger, or just to get stronger while maintaining your roughly current size? How many times a week do you lift, or did you train aikido?

Where does this refusal to consider weight training come from? What about bodyweight training is so appealing?

comment Why is using wristlock throws so frowned upon in BJJ even though they are not illegal?
@HuwEvans If you're so sure in your wristlock technique in the context of BJJ, then go try it out. Most BJJ schools offer a handful of free classes and they'll be happy to give you a blue or purple belt to try your wrist manipulations on.

comment Does judo work against someone not wearing a judogi?
She's a good example of judo application without the gi, but counterpoint: she spent substantial time training without the gi to transition her skills to MMA.
