    I think my favorite part of the OP's link is where Sifu Smith teaches Ving Tsung as it was taught to him by his predecessor, as it was taught to his predecessor before him and so on. Adding new concepts only dilutes the system.

    In that way an art is doomed to never evolve.

    Doesn't Judo today recognise more techniques than when it was founded?

    Yep, originally there were only 40 recognised throws in judo, today there are 67

    Here is a link to judoinfo that has both the traditional 40 (article 1) and the modern 67 (article 2).

    Yes, but they were commonly used for a long time in Judo. "new" techniques does not equal evolution.

    Keeping alive a tradition is not necessarily a bad thing, that is what the koryu arts of Japan do for the most part. Things get handed down through generations.
