Does the U.S. Army’s Combatives system include too much BJJ?

I was online today and found a good article with a video of Matt Larson speaking about the Modern Army Combatives Program (MACP). Matt Larson answered a popular question that has plagued many top MACP instructors from their soldiers. After watching the video I feel Larson answered the question very well, and to my expectations. Even with my strong striking martial arts foundation, I believe that a grappling style martial arts is the best system to be implemented to modern soldiers, and what better system to use then the Jiu-Jitsu from the Gracie family.
