Vinicius „Draculino“ Magalhães Explains Why BJJ Is Better Today Than It Used To Be

What do you think about the state of the present-day Jiu-Jitsu evolution? Is it better or worse than what took place a few years or even decades ago?

Well, the legendary Vinicius „Draculino“ Magalhães believes that it is for the better.
Here is why, as he explained in a conversation with BJJ Eastern Europe:

The reality is that the technical level of today’s Jiu-Jitsu is way higher than it used to be.
However, people see the old matches and a lot of times think that those ones are more exciting and more realistic, closer to a fight.

But, you have to understand that there were some root changes that were made in the game, in order to preserve the physical integrity of the person.

So, nowadays you see some matches that are really sport-oriented.
And that is not the fault of competitors at all, it is due to the rules themselves.

It’s all a part of the evolution:

And so, some people say that these matches are boring, that nobody wants to go on top, that everybody just gets down to the floor and that nobody does takedowns anymore…

But I think it is just an evolution of the sport and that the people play alongside the rules because they want to be champions.
