Judo Striking and Self-Defence

Interesting to see common aspects of Karate in Judo’s Goshin Jutsu No Kata.  Particularly:

  • Striking: Many Judo schools no longer practice this at all
  • Self defence: Many of the non-competitive techniques shown are similar to some non-competitive Karate techniques.

The over arching theme is how many many martial arts systems have narrowed their field of study as they become more and more specialised in a given area. Karate, judo, boxing, aikido, etc have all been prone to this.
