Judo use to have atemi blows(strikes to the body) in order to distract the opponent with the pain in the struck area then they applied the throw or lock quickly. Not everyone no how to fight and yes there are people that will grab your hand or shoulder
I sincerely doubt theres some type of Wu Xing Boxing that very few people alive know, and they are somehow not teaching people the amazing knowledge fully. Sounds like a bad jet li movie. My personal take is that Kung Fu Forms were meant to keep the user limber and in shape. Theres only a handful of applyable punches and kicks I dont think its going to change anytime soon. The name brazillian jiu jitsu is a fad, but the techniques used arent exclusive to that style, they obviously came from Japanese Jiu Jitsu, then that came from some other martial art, which proves that at one time they were applyable. I guarantee applyable traditional martial arts look just like MMA. I find it hard to believe they could have challenge fights and so much honor lieing around that they'd try to use a bunch of wushu nonsense on eachother.
