Dojo Fighting vs Streetfighting

At Seichou Dojo we practice contact free-fighting because we want our students to learn to defend themselves.

However, if we agree that street fighting is often barbaric, then we need to ask ourselves how Dojo fighting is different from street fighting.

Street fighting results when communication fails and people are unable to use their intellect to resolve disputes. Each blow or martial technique that is employed in a street fight emanates from a desire to evade, incapacitate or injure an adversary.

In the Dojo, our purpose is not to injure our partner but to improve our own technique and to help our partner learn how to defend against a strong attack.

In this way, Dojo fighting and street fighting are completely different. OSU!
