Where's the controversy?
The Soviet military and the creators of Sambo felt a sport form was needed which could be safely practiced on a regular basis. This would also incorporate modern advancements in sports medicine and training methodology. All of which taught to them under the guidance of a skilled coach.
Under the tutelage of Soviet advisors, the Chinese endeavored to create a similar method of training their military forces. The program was perhaps more important to the Chinese who lacked an industrial base and access to most modern warfare technology. The Whampoa military instructors who studied the traditional martial art styles combined them with the modern training methods and created Sanshou and the decision was made to use a Kickboxing like format when practiced.

OP should do the russian-chinese martial art thing, 'cause if Brazil, China, and Russia teamed up I think they could actually take over the world."Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***
"The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
~ The Secret of Judo (Jiichi Watanabe & Lindy Avakian), p.19
"Hope is not a method... nor is enthusiasm."
~ Brigadier General Gordon Toney

BJJ is a sport so a sport is a great pairing for it. Rugby is a sport. Boxing is a sport. Tactical shooting competitions are a sport.
Staring yourself out in the mirror with knife clenched between your teeth, illuminated only by the tactical flashlight raised above your head is not a sport. Think about it.
(W.Rabbit your summarized history of San Shou in Chinese martial arts is a little misleading. San Shou tournaments never stopped during the 20th century. They didn't happen 'back in the day' then disappear and then start up again recently. San Shou as a style came into existence in parallel on mainland china. They are a continuous tradition that were and are popular throughout the Chinese diaspora of Asia, many of the competitors still having trained in 'traditional' styles with names you'd recognise.
Empty handed fighting was probably of no more importance in Qin-era China than it is today, possibly less so. Pre-modern era Chinese martial arts were primarily about cutting and stabbing people with the big goofy weapons we now just do the forms with).

Not me personally I just know about a lot of the training for a lot of police departments. Research from another time.

Kung fu sucks. No kung fu in the world could ever work well with BJJ.

What is perhaps more hysterical to me is you insult me in your first quote and then quote me in the second quote to support your thesis.....
