So let me get this straight....
In Japan Judo, Ju-Jitsu, and Karate are viewed as respectable sports and they respect the atheletes.....but they consider MMA as bunch of circus freaks???
I don't get it. Why?
>>

MMA is closer to pro-wrestling in its market demo and advertising.
Shares a history with pro-wrestling in japan
And many of the popular fighters are kind of freaks, for a lack of a better word.

The other 3 you mentioned are part of traditional and respected martial culture.

Mastah the one art better den average in many technique

MMA fighers rack disciprine.

>>766683
They make the distinction between a sport and a bloodsport. That's all.

Anon in Japan here. The vast majority of people in Japan don't know or care about mma or shooto. They don't know there are different styles of karate and think judo and jujutsu are the same thing.

tl;dr interest in martial arts in Japan is niche at best.

You sure about that? I read an article about the prescence of MMA in Japan and the people that actually watch it think of it like going to the circus.

>the people that actually watch it
There's your problem. I'm talking about the majority. Martial arts in general is niche as fuck
>>
>>767502
That's true, Bad Rutten did do some pro wrestling.
>>
>>766683
Muh national tradition obviously

>I'm talking about the majority.

Why? it is easy to see from context that we are talking about fans and enthusiast.
You seem to just want to shut down the discussion.
>>
>>766683
They don't understand mma rules is all.
That and have you seen pride fighting..
Shit's fucking hilarious. Worse matchmaking than rito. Terribly flashy as well.

Heritage. Asians don't like people messing with traditional arts.
>>
karate isn't even japanese. It's okinawan by way of china and the japanese laid claim to it as a national tradition when they took over the island
>>
>>767510
No, not really. It's kind of considered to be a redneck sport like NASCAR. There are still lots of people that watch, but the general public still doesn't really know about it.
>>
>>774384
Its not. Why else do you think Kimura fucking Helio's shit up.
