this is a pretty cool site that has a BJJ "family tree" it is far from complete but seing as it is huge right now i am sure if it was complete it would be imposible to navigate.

Cool site/info. Thanks for posting it. My teacher was graded/certified as a Black Belt at the Tokyo branch of the IBJJF. So, I guess he doesn't have a tie to a specific lineage (or rather, he has started his own). He has spent time training under some pretty skilled grapplers over the years though (including some time in Brazil). He is also listed on this very old online list (1999) of bjj fighters as a 'coming up fighter' of note: http://members.fortunecity.com/fightman5000/
(Takashi Iwabuchi) But the bottom line its, lineage or no, he knows his stuff...and he backs it up every time he steps onto the mat.
