My cousin has taken it and loves it. We usually practice when we hang out and he teaches me stuff here and there. He's taking that plus Krav Maga.
From what he's showed me, I don't think it should take long to incorporate Vale Tudo.
Talked to my cousin and gave me some info. The basic difference between the BJJ and VT is that you don't have a gi in VT, so there is some variation in your BJJ techniques. If you have a good background in BJJ, you should be able to incorporate VT with no problem.
