Andrew Wiltse Weighs In On The CJI vs ADCC Debate: “How Long Does $10k Really Last In Today’s Economy?”

Andrew Wiltse Weighs In On The CJI vs ADCC Debate: “How Long Does $10k Really Last In Today’s Economy?”

What are your thoughts on the CJI vs ADCC debate?
Well, Andrew Wiltse appears to have straightforward & rational feelings about the “beef”.

In a recent article written for the Jits. Magazine, Wiltse explained that the ADCC played an enormous role for the popularization of the sport…
About half a decade ago. And that right now, it’s behind on paying their athletes what they’re due:

ADCC has not significantly raised its cash payout in quite a while.

Winners at ADCC can expect to be paid out roughly $10,000, without factoring in potential bonuses that can be paid out for particularly impressive feats.

Wow! Ten grand for a day or two’s work. Sounds great, right?
While this may seem like a lot of money to someone who’s never had any, there are a few things in the adult world that would like to have a word on the subject.

Like taxes and bills. Every adult’s favorite pairing of things.
Ten grand can certainly get you ahead in life, but how long does ten grand really last in today’s economy?

He explains why the reef that CJI is causing is a good thing nowadays:

This is why I support the CJI placing their event date on the same day as ADCC.
ADCC has now been forced into a position where they must either make massive changes or get left behind.

And it had to be this way. Other options weren’t working.

Imagine, for a moment, that you wanted to pressure ADCC into making some serious changes.
As a famous, charismatic athlete you try being outspoken about the subject. You fail. You need something to really influence ADCC in a way they can’t ignore or brush aside.

F*ck it, we ball.
