You make some good points Zach and I respect that. Judo in no way is a good art to take if you want to avoid being hit. To say it is 100% useless against a striking art in terms of not getting hit I don't agree with. I guess we shall have to agree to disagree on this one, but for sure it was a good debate and you made some interesting points. Thanks for that!
I have seen Judoka do well against strikers. If JJ can do well against strikers, so can Judo.
