Re: Sport is the new Budo

Even if i think a "competitive" mindset with an "i win, you lose" mentality is not productive from a Budo point of view, sparring as a training tool has his place in the integral developement of the martial artist.

I'd suggest reading this T.K. Chiba article, especially focusing in the Yamaoka Tesshu's "tachigiri no seigan" part.
