Learning all the Judo individual throws one at a time is similar to learning the vocabulary of a foreign language, the difficult part is to put the words together in the correct order to make fluent sentences. Sooner or later the judo player has to learn to combine techniques in order to be effective in contest. There is an old saying in judo that one technique mastered is worth a thousand sampled, which remains as true today as it ever was, but five or six techniques mastered is even better.

Mixed martial arts, or MMA, is an extreme contact sport that began in 1993 with the introduction of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. MMA incorporates fighting techniques of a variety of martial arts forms, including taekwondo, judo, and karate. The original Ultimate Fighting Championship was an “anything goes” type of competition, with few rules and little regard for the competitors’ safety. The beginning years of mixed martial arts competition was considered to be brutal by many, but rules and regulations for the sport have evolved over the years. Even with the additional rules for competition, MMA is still an intense sport that requires immense strength and fierce training.

Why is Bruce Lee still considered the best martial artist ever and more importantly how can we still learn from him? What is it that great martial artists have that other artists don’t, and more importantly how can I apply this to learning martial arts?
