The original UFC's were the some of the Demonstration of jujitsu, and it's kind of raw and and most effective form. So today there is that divided in Jiu-Jitsu and and we, you know, remain hundred percent committed as an organization, Gracie, University to teaching it in its in its self-defense form and and people are becoming more and more aware of the separation.
