positive. a huge mart of our sport is using what works for you. they are just like any school/instructor/system, take the good and leave the bad.

you can't really win a decision from your back in modern MMA
you think they would considering he was the first to tap Royler. I've got Bravo's 10th planet book that my brother and I dabbled with along with a no rules bjj book, and bravo's style is pretty revolutionary. It's a branch off traditional bjj, just like Helio's was a branch off Japanese jiu-jitsu.

I trained in the gi for almost 2 years, and switched to the 10th Planet school in Saint Paul about a month ago, and I love it. I went to a Bravo seminar in August, and that was what really got me thinking about moving to 10th Planet and taking off the gi. I think Eddie's ideas, philosophies, and creativity are awesome. His system/style work very well for me because I'm a smaller guy (5'10" 155) so I'm almost always working from my back, and Eddie's system provides a lot of options from places that I find myself in regularly.
I totally know what you mean about the dislike for 10th Planet. I was met with a lot of negativity when I mentioned anything about Eddie at my previous school which is a Rickson affiliate and run by a Rickson black belt. The traditional guys don't really want to give Eddie any credit for what he's doing.
