What can other martial arts learn from judo?
Perhaps this has been discussed before, but I was hoping that some of our judokas could consolidate this information into this thread.
I have very little knowledge of judo, but am very inspired at the organization and level of quality control that judo has.
Basically, what do other martial arts have to do to have a place like the Kodokan? Is this feasible, or am I just being naive?
Thanks in advance.

"How to emulate Kano ... " That's a really good question.
Kano was a genius and they simply don't come along very often. He was at his peak at a time when his country stood at a major historical cross-road. Kano applied the best of both Asian and European traditions and innovations towards simultaneously preserving Japan's martial legacy and transforming it into a modern, international sport. And, obviously, this wasn't just in terms of martial arts techniques; he had the necessary education, political connections (in the right fields), charisma and obsessive drive to create Kodokan judo.
Russia went more-or-less the same way pretty early in the development of SAMBO via the , and they had some high-powered people at the beginning (Oshchepkov, Spiridonov). Korea did it by committee (of course), and the result was the Kukkiwon.
Basically, for a contemporary MA to emulate Kano's success, you'd first need at least one martial arts/organizational genius on board, backed up by a governmental or corporate institution willing to commit their resources to the project. It ain't gonna happen at the strip-mall dojo level.

sparring under realistic conditions as long as it doesn't get people hurt to much.

How about running consistent quality schools with real sparring for a reasonable price.

The full contact aspect of Judo is seen to have contributed to the lack of "The Deadly" bullshit. This is the style's great contribution.
Another topic could be what we can learn from Judo's mistakes. Care to turtle up? Or is it down?"Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez
