the fact that judo is not "gentle" at all, with risks to injury during randori/throws and taking hard falls, makes it an effective conditioning for self-defense (saving lives) or for playing MMA.
question, how does busting yourself up during practice helping self-defense? maybe that's why they called it self-defense, as in defending against oneself.
