Last week’s Brazilian Jiu-jitsu poll asked you whether you think BJJ will become an Olympic sport and if so, what it will look like. Lots of interesting points of views came out in the comments section, and here at FightWorks Podcast headquarters we received a phone call on our toll free line 877-247-4662 raising the possibility that BJJ as an Olympic sport may not necessarily be a positive development. The caller referenced judo in the Olympics and suggested that acceptance as an Olympic sport may have a negative impact on the martial art.
What’s your take? Do you think BJJ would be better off if it were an Olympic sport, or do you think it’s best if jiu-jitsu is never accepted into the Olympics? Let us know in the comment section or feel free to leave us a voicemail on the phone number above!
