Relations between combat sport and real combat
Combat sports is often derived from Martial Arts in accent, as the man himself, “who
is stronger” quest by setting contest rules: Olympic Judo,

are all fighting sports that derived from original Kodokan Judo
cases sport combat style may not be based on any martial art – one (and may be the only) example is Greek-Roman
compare fighting power of a combat sport to its precursor martial art is meaningless as it’s always just a subset of original, shaped by the contest
rules. In the real fight good master of any martial art based sport combat

Dr. Kano started his Kodokan Judo
in 1882 it was about 300 styles and schools of jujutsu
The question is why he did it? And why his Judo survived and

close to Word-wide proliferation of Judo?
answer to this question (by my humble opinion) is that Dr. Kano
included sporting component into Judo what differentiate it from other jujutsu styles.
sporting dimension to Judo in addition to randori training
added new qualities to Judo combat training and allowed to sustain high quality training in a peace time, witch was a problem for traditional jujutsu as,
without constant battle proving, kata-only trained techniques tend to loose their effectiveness.
