Then you start throwing Kendoka in to do jikeiko and we see something strange happen. The Kendoka clearly have better movment and skills with the shinai. However the pure violence of action, and power of the Judoka often win him the bout, or end in mutual strikes.
What you have there is an ass being struck, ignoring it, then repeatedly pounding away ato uchi
and thinking he's "winning" because his partner isn't doing the same.
