I actually would do Cross-fit myself but I just don't have the time to join a cross-fit box. I'm already training BJJ 4-5x a week. This I can work on during the other 2 days of the week.
You are correct - there was a falling out years ago, but as far as I know, that's all water under the bridge now.
A friend of mine and coach/owner of a CF box is big into BJJ - He splits his time between running the gym and training and it seems both methods compliment each other.
A lot of people think CrossFit is just HIIT but there's a whole lot more depth than that. We do train for intensity, but support it with olympic, gymnastic, strength and conditioning as well.
