All martial arts (by definition) have physical contact between practice partners at some point in their training (ie increasing levels determined by skill/rank). There are hundreds of different arts eg Judo, Karate, Kung-Fu Wu-Shu, Tae Kwan Do, Tai Chi Ch'uan, Aikido, Ba Gwa Cheng, Hwrang Do, Kenjutsu, Hsing-Yi, AikiJujitsu, etc., etc.
Each has a particular technical base, certain "tools" fundamentally which they prefer to use. Some arts strike (punch, kick), some grapple, others "wrestle", some pin. Heavy physical contact is likely at some juncture it is safe to assume.
My particular question, are PUMPS compatable to arts where heavy physical contact is certain to occur (ie grappling, throwing, "submissions")?
Any other martial artists (with some diabetes experience: ) in membership???
