You are absolutely right... Alot of martial artist are always bagging JUDO and strangely enough it is mainly martial artist that practice grappling arts that like to bring out the above mentioned remark. Like most of you Im in love with martial arts all types of martial im oppened minded and will appreciate different styles for different reasons. You should not take degrading remarks directed at JUDO personally as you must understand that it is in human nature to shy away and be ignorant to things that they dont understand.

I dont practice Judo i practice an "ECLECTIC" stystem ( a system made up of many systems ) and man im always getting told by people who practice "PURE" styles that the style i practice is just a rip off of many styles and that i should be ashamed ...and you what my reply is ? nothing i say nothing becuase at the end of the day i have to live with it not them me...so my basic point is "is JUDO just a sport" hell yeah but so what its a darn good sport ...please name me one martial arts style out there that is not a sport...ok granted there are alot of schools who concentrate on self defense and claim that their style is far superior to any other and that sports oriented styles are no good for the street...and to all those that think this let me ask you this ? how many of you think that Mike Tyson could not defend himself on the street .. I mean he practices a form of combat sports?....

After deciphering your statement I agree with most of it. Judo however is also a martial art as well. The sport aspect is just what the world has gotten used to. However for judo to evolve it has to continuously change to meet the times. People who complain about your eclectic style being a rip-off just don''t want to face change. They are comfortable with traditional methods.
