    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Shidokan kicks ass

    now I'm a grappling sort of fellow
    but I love and aspire to skillful striking
    I love NHB contests
    and look forward to competing in them myself.
    The shidokan
    is high on my list of awesome because of its
    structure
    which encourages participants to have excellant stand-up ability including throws
    and then settles the matter in NHB style in the last two rounds. It's incredible, you'll see two great strikers hammer it out all match, but when the grappling gets let in whoever knows their stuff best wins it quick.
    Plus the first two rounds of bare knuckle- you get to see all types of throws and takedowns which I love.
    I feel its an event prized more by fighters maybe than by the public. It defines all the essentials of combat (IMHO)
    not that any other event doesn't
    just that this one allows more singular focus on aspects of the fight game.
    It's almost academic in that regard.
    anyways I just really enjoy this event and recomend it to anyone if the get a chance to see it on ESPN.

    From rules of Shidokan, http://www.shidokan.com/rules.htm:

    (Interestingly enough, the page is entitled "Chicago Fitness Center")

    Two (2), two (2) minute rounds Karate. Two (2) two (2) minute rounds with 10 oz. gloves, Kick-Boxing rules (no elbows). Two (2) two (2) minute rounds, 5 oz. gloves with Grappling permitted, NO TIME LIMIT.
    I'm confused. Exactly what round does this lack of time limit apply to?

    I always figured the short time limit (2 minutes isn't going to amount to much!) is there because a "martial art goal" (or whatever) is to finish a fight as quickly as possible. This ideal is mirrored in the ring, finish the fight as quickly as possible

    Yeah, but then what does "NO TIME LIMIT" refer to?
