HENRY S. OKAZAKI, THE WORLDS FIRST MMA FIGHTER AND HIS SUCCESSOR MY TEACHER PROFESSOR KUFFERATH WHO WAS SAUGHT OUT BY BRUCE LEE TO LEARN JUJITSU

MMA TRAINING VS THE ART OF EMPTYING YOUR CUP

There was a time when the martial arts used to be a craft. That you spent your whole life learning. Spending 15 years in one style and then moving to the next art. The time spent in the previous style allowed you to be able to amalgamate the new style into the old. Cross-training back then took time. It was more about a lifestyle and or a way of life, than just about winning and losing matches.
Where the immigrants who came to our shores would bring not only their martial arts but they also brought their traditions and culture. And you had to respect those traditions and cultures along with the martial arts or they would not teach you. And that was their trial by fire that they would give each student.
Today, cross-training is like going to a buffet. Where you first put pizza on your plate, and then put corn on top of that, and then beef stew on top of the corn, and finally crab, And then you go to your table and someone asks you, “How does the pizza taste?” And you tell them that, it tastes a little bit like corn, beef stew, and crab.
