    There isn't one. You go in a ring and punch him and that is how you determine his skill level.

    Even so, Judo will turn you into a piece of rawhide, as will any similar wrestling art. If you can box well and wrestle well, you're golden. I've seldom met tougher folks than those in my Judo club.

    I boxed long ago when I was in the army. I still train it some 30 years later. Even at my adavanced age, boxing is useful to set up Judo/BJJ. My knees aren't what they once were and I don't have the flexibility in my legs I had when I was a kid, so I don't think it's a very good idea to train like Muay Thai (especially to be on the receiving end during training). I'll stick with a blend of boxing and grappling, as long as I can crawl I can grapple Lol.
