Jukaado bull fight is specially designed to stimulate a multiple attacker situation on the road where anything from kicking, punching, pulling, pushing, throwing, locking etc can be used. It aims at improving your reflexes and ability to judge the movements of your attacker before he even attacks you. This also helps in building your endurance and spirit to not give up.
There are no rules except that you cannot bite or scratch. The 3 attackers charge the defender together and have to restrict his or her complete movement. while the defender has to keep moving around and avoid getting caught and put down. Even though it looks simple it is very very tiring even a bout of just a minute requires lots of stamina.
Do not practice or try this without proper instruction, if your body is not conditioned then it can lead to severe injuries and bruises. Only qualified and authentic instruction is required to train like this.

JUKAADO is a Mutli Martial Art with the base combination consisting of Judo, Karate and Aikido. However we also adapt and absorb the good techniques from numerous martial arts like Muay Thai, Kung fu, Kempo and so on.
Being a multi martial art our training is very practically based and is very useful for civilians in self - defense as well as defense and security personal in Unarmed Combat. When a fight breaks out in the street the outcome or the way the fight will proceed cannot be controlled as there are no refrees like in a ring and no rules too. One has to be prepared for anything, sometimes even being hurled at with objects like stones, helmets, chairs and so on. In my personal experience as a security consultant I have experienced these quite a few times. It is only practical training that can prepare you for such attacks. The secret to good self defense is an alert mind and the ability to be prepared for anything that comes your way. Repetitive training is the only way one can achieve this ability.
The above video is a Jukaado kumite where the fight may start with kicks and punches but as it often happens in a street fight it may end up on the ground. This is where knowledge of jukaado is practically based we train in striking techniques as well as grappling and locking techniques so no matter where the fight goes we are prepared to defend our self and restrain the attacker from harming us and other innocent bystanders. In the video it is visible how from a standing brawl suddenly they end up on the ground and finally the fight is ended with an arm lock. While training we tap out if any joint is locked so as to eliminate the chance of any injuries during training.
In the above video the Kumite or fight is different because of the approach of the fighters. No two people think alike and so similarly no two people fight alike too. Many times a street fight may never result in lots of kicking and punching but gets into grappling that is pushing, pulling and so on. The above video is a classic example of this. Barely do they start fighting they get close and throw each other to the ground and try to get control of the other by either restricting movement or by locking the arm. The fight ends with one of them Locking the arm of the other.
The secret to any perfection or excellence is practice and doing the same thing again and again and again.

Conditioning of the body is very important and is practiced in most martial arts that have not moved towards sport. Martial Arts which still have full contact kumite's or fights still do practice body conditioning to strengthen every part of the body.
Every part of the body can be strengthened using different traditional training aids. Today we will be seeing how the shin bone is conditioned using bamboo sticks. Take some bamboo sticks of equal length and bundle them together then make your training partner hold one end while you kick the bundle of sticks with your shin bone. We can also use a banana tree instead of bundle of bamboo sticks. Repeated kicking with the shin bone will strengthen the shin bone. With lots of such training it is possible to break your opponents bone by just kicking with the shin. However please do not do this unless you are supervised by a trained martial arts instructor. Practice makes perfect but wrong practice only breaks. Please do train under an instructor always.
