    Nice post J-Sho, I'm a lot wiser on the issue after reading it. Now I understand why it isn't in the Olympics.

    contrary to popular belief, there hasn't been a demo sport at the olympics since 1992 (which were pelota, roller hockey and taekwondo - which had already been a demonstration sport in 1988).

    Taekwondo and women's judo were the last demonstration sports to enter the main programme.

    The chinese ran a parallel wushu world championships to try to get that sport more publicity in 2008.

    I dont think it will get into the Olympics partly due to it not being a good spectator sport for the uninformed, and partly due to the BJJ Federation not being run by an ellected board (top dog being el Presedente for life Carlinos Gracie).

    Roll on Olympic BMX racing and softball!
