Many of today’s MMA fighters are compartmentalized in their training and subsequently fight in a compartmentalized fashion. When striking with their hands, they train and fight like a Boxer. When using their legs they fight and train like a Karate practitioner and when on the ground they are Jujitsu players - Judo and Sambo for throws and so on. Kudo has fused time tested techniques and modified them to create a Martial Art where the best strategies and techniques for striking, grappling, ground fighting and throwing are synthesized and perfected to build fighters that fight with one mind.
