    Default have Eddie Bravo's techniques caught on in mma?

    What are your thoughts?

    You see people using his stuff but has it made real inroads?

    The only things you see people using are the stuff people already used before him. He has popularized Nino Schembri style high guard, but it's gone too far and made too many beginners obsessed with it to the point they ignore fundamental techniques in favour of stuff which needs ridiculous flexibility and will never happen on experienced grapplers.

    hardly ever see it work.

    But my opinion might be clouded becaue I think Bravo is the very definition of a douchebag.

    Doesn't work in general as a system, couple of good things come from him though.

    Has it revolutionised MMA like he sais it would? No! It didn't even change the grappling game never mind MMA.
