Default Old-School Training Today...

Strange hypothetical question: How far could a fighter using a 1960's/70's approach to martial arts training do today in MMA? Say, for instance:





TRAINING

--Bodybuilding-type weightlifting

--Roadwork

--Static stretching

--Some bagwork, plus breaking and limb-hardening stuff for breaking

--Probably a few katas



MARTIAL ARTS

--Judo, competing in judo tournaments

--Shotokan or a comparable tournament karate style, performed full contact to the body and medium to the head. Tournaments around the country.

--Occasional challenge matches against other martial artists, as the Gracies did (very few rules in place here).





This is probably going to be one of those questions that I know the answer before I ask, but have at it. Discuss.

Pretty well if they were talented at Judo and whichever striking art they do. You've got your fitness, grappling, striking, occasional sparing, all basic mainstays. Its not exactly a perfect training regiman, but if they were dilligent in the conditioning and tournaments they would do decent.

Which in general I would agree with...but that would tend to argue that there are many fighters from the past who would do well in modern MMA.
