Thoughts on this quote? :

Judo is the best art to start with. It is simply understood by what Judo gives you versus its counterpart, namely Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu breeds students who base their fighting ability on technique. That means you will naturally see a major difference in a Judoka and a Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. The difference is a Judoka will be a force, bred to be aggressive with technique as a secondary focus. The Jiu-Jitsu student is bred to look for the easiest ways to accomplish something. This means they will generally be lazier than the latter.
.
Overall: It is easier to build attributes and technique than to rely on technique as a default setting.
.
If a student starts with JJ they will find it much harder to build those attributes to push their technique under extreme circumstances. The Judoka doesn't have the same difficulty in learning the important technique after the fact.

It is a mindset that we are talking about. And when someone is bred to be lazy, breaking that spell could possibly be impossible.

I have heard great things about Camarillo. But the below qoute by Vegard from the other forum more or less echoes my own personal views on coaching.

"Putting an emphasis on technique and leverage versus strength and attributes doesn't make you lazy. It makes you smart and able to use your attributes to your best advantage.'
