Default Re: Do you think Judo is somewhat a misused martial art in terms of MMA ??

How many judo throws have you ever seen used in the UFC? You could count them on one hand.

90 % of the stuff they teach you in Judo, you can't use effectively against a real opponent or in a fight. Yeah, maybe some bum on the street with no fighting experiance you could do a hip toss ( O Goshi) on. You learn armbars really well, thats is about it.


There are so many Judo schools in Europe and Asia, it is very popular overseas, unlike the United States. They don't produce any fighters though.
