The Every Man BJJ

If the original Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the basics, are moves that were meant for the average to be able to do and if its something that only an athletic person can do is deemed fancy...

Then what happens when the average person becomes more and more sedentary? The definition of something anyone can do in Helio's day and today has changed. Many people, especially Americans have a hard time touching their toes.

So then if you tell me the best moves are the basics, the moves anyone can do, then those moves will become worse and worse over time because people's postures, weight, flexibility are all getting worse.

So is that concept of basics and the original BJJ and moves that anyone can do even good for BJJ or will it make BJJ like any other McDojo?

Shouldn't becoming more athletic and adapting to the art be a part of becoming a martial artist? I mean after all martial arts was invented in the Shaolin Temples because the monks were getting too out of shape.
