    Interesting concept though

    looks like my kinda book. at one point tonight in class we were working B1a freestyle and following up with whatever we wanted.. so i basically grafted a kote geishi after the punch, brought the guy down, and went into a standing figure four bicep cutter with my knees on his rib and head.

    If you know some judo or jujutsu (BTW: if you write judo you should write jujutsu, or, if you prefer jiujitsu you should it call jiudo ) it will be pretty hard not to use it, if your uke gives you a lock or if the opportunity to throw is there.

    What is interesting is that when you look at systems that were bred for warfare, all these skills were present. It wasn't until folks started fighting less and training just for the sake of training that a lot of systems became specialized. If you look at systems of jujutsu (Japanese) they all included, weapons, grappling, striking, and tactics. It is nice to see folks working to reintegrate these skills.

    Of course this is nothing new as systems such as Kajukenbo understood this.

    I've been doing this for decades,with wrestling boxing tkd muay thai gungfu,hapkido,capoeira aikido,gun knife and stickfighting,52 Blocks,iaido,and a few other things for good measure.The more I integrated,the more obvious that it became to me that each system incorporated aspects of the other,the emphasis that each system is known for is really a reflection of its philosophy,history and thus (most importantly in a directly practical sense) the training emphasis have become specialized and specific to a particular favored approach (judo favors throws above all else,wrestling has no deliberate impact strikes,aikido has no newaza,iaido guys don't strike empty handed or grapple,capoeiristas for the most part don't spar they spend an inordinate amount of time in conditioning and in the roda) even though every single one of them from tai chi to capoeira to whatever new fighting system has roots that practically and effectively engage all of the concerns of self-defense. I've also experienced a synergistic effect on my fighting arsenal,skill,and martial understanding as I cross-trained.My boxing got better as my wrestling got better as my aikido got better as my kenpo got better as my judo got better as my capoeira got better as my MT got better as my weapon work of all forms got better,etc.

    I completely agree with the quoted remark and all the similar ones on-thread,and I have long considered putting out trailers for my DVD Series integrating this approach this year.
