It’s been a big year for Brazilian jiu-jitsu, no matter how you slice it. Heck, some would say that it contained one of the most exciting matches we have have ever seen when Rodolfo Vieira faced Buchecha!
Two recent developments have been and will continue to be on people’s minds:
- the October 14 debut of Metamoris, an invite only event where some of jiu-jitsu’s biggest names competed in submission only (no points) matches with twenty minute time limits
- the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation announced they’ll hold their first (presumably of many) events where the athletes will be compensated for their performance.
Which do you see as having a bigger, lasting impact on the world of Brazilian jiu-jitsu?
