This is what CMA needs, a sort of MMA free for all fighting. CMA needs a kyukushin..too bad it probably won't happen since so many CMA sylists are selfish when it comes to exposing their art :(

The criteria of what is a TRADITIONAL MA varies depending on the person you ask.
If age was just the requirement for something being TRADITIONAL than BJJ is more traditional that arts like Aikido, TKD, and even Kyokushin Karate becuse it was founded before all of them.
However Daidojuku is an art that stems from another that was founded relatively recently. So it still would be hard to classify it as TRADITIONAL since its barely over 2 decades old. (it was founded in 1981, BTW)

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

Yeah I know what San Da is, but its not really too much CMA. Alot of different CMA styles like lets say, taiji, or baji, or xingyi. For example I would love to see someone go out there and fight, using IMA body method and mechanics (but not being restricted by them), and power, adapting it to such a tournament. Or allow stand up grappling and pressure point's etc. Its difficult without MMA gloves though. San Da is ok, but its mostly some basic Suai jou throws and Muy Thai.

On the other hand score keeping is pointless when you knock your opponent senseless.
