Re: O sensei and 'correct ukemi'

Yes but I am on the "tradional side" of things against newer ways of fighting. I know-several BJJ and MMA guys who have been quite surpirised at what some tradional methods, from several sources; Chinese and Japanese, can deliver in the right hands. Particularly when anything goes. That said, nothing is imperical, its still very much about the man, not the art.

FWIW, It's a mistake to limit MMA discussions to MMAsport-not my interest at all. MMA as a study -has introgued and involved tradional guys from way back-and was the precurser to the modern MMA sport stuff. They are not the same.
