I thought that too until I actually got there... me and an old buddy were essentially the only guys actually interested in grappling whilst all of the others were just there for the work out (and to learn suspect techniques to boost their confidence a la McDojo) so they probably chose to take out the grappling in our school because of that. Traditional ju-jitsu grappling was more battlefield oriented so it's kind of different from modern BJJ (I have never had to use the many sword-disarming techniques that I had to learn at the traditional) which is more "take him to the ground, position and sub him". I'd probably sum it up like this: Trad Ju-jiutsu is kind of like Aikido without all of the goofy shit and the magic tricks + with some "battle submissions", dated techniques and dirty tactics (fish-hooking, eyegouging, hairpulling, ballbusting and so forth).
... and yes they were retards. I've since learned that they teach Krav Maga instead :\
