Real Fight Breakdowns

The worst enemy of all budoka is Self-deception. And following that: Mutual deception. A plight so easy to fall into, and so very dangerous.  Do you know what a fight actually looks like?  

One of the things I’ve consistently noticed is that it is hard for many people to play the bad guy in training.  In open/ cooperative training uke’s simply refuse to attempt to track nage, attack with intention, or recover.  Others still do not know where to look during a physical altercation.

With the idea of working to get better at realistic open training (not on Classical Techniques mind you), but applications off of sincere attacks, I thought it might be a good idea to look at some real fight videos.  Caught on cell phones and posted on, there are some surprising insights you can gain by watching.

By the way, in most of these videos, the public simply stands by.  Note.  If you are attacked, you are most likely on your own.th3
