Now do you think most Martial Arts Students are aware of all of this? I would think they are preoccupied with their training partners and training drills....
Its not that you cant call a H2H fighting system Jujitsu, but it is because many people already called various sports Jujitsu, H2H name tried to depict a different game. Of course you can say that many H2H systems are no different than the average Jujitsu mentality. Jujitsu however is a great game that give confidence for training partners not to fear grappling contact and training in falling, rolling, restraining techniques escapes, and getting a feel of what it really feels like to have your limbs or airways slowly brought to pain and the verge of irretrievable damage. It is the stuff you never get to feel however is the most dangerous one. Surely it might give a kid a first time sensation of what it feels like to be choked if he did not already get it in the street and probably prompt him to do something about it.
Now you can still argue that having the practice of years in taking out of balance throwing and restraining, drilling the push and pull change of directions is a very valuable fighting skill. That is true! But you can say the same thing about Impact. You can say that people compensate with different skills those skills they do not have....
That is true as well. You can hurt people and defend yourself in various ranges. But prioritizing is the key elements of success, and the balance of your your skill is second to none as it is part of prioritization.
Finally, if you do hear these terminology of prioritization and balance of impact and push and pull in your Jujitsu school, aside from being bogged down with Japanese or Brazilian Terminology, you have a chance you might be learning good self defense skills. But do not forget you need to have sufficient impact (punching and kicking) skills in your school to provide challenging training partners!
