Re: Sport is the new Budo

The only real martial art out there today is what the military practice. Some of them do boxing, but not all - kind of free choice. Some of them do wrestling, but not all - kind of free choice. But all of them have to do compulsory military drills that have techniques that resemble Jujutsu - takedowns, locks, kills etc. What they do is based on the gun, the unloaded gun (out of ammo), the knife, and empty hand. The techniques are pretty simple and rely more on a lot more grunt than technical perfection - perhaps that is what we need too, a bit more grunt!
