comment Wearing a fitness tracker during a martial arts session
Found this: facebook.com/BlueLeafDojoAikido/posts/430595116987667 - we don't know how much the poster weights (and how "intense" their practice is) but at least it looks like it is somehow doable, the trick seems to be to use a Heart Monitor as suggested by Rob Gray, instead of a step counter.

Yes, the table above somehow does not look very convincing, at least for people over 70kg (and I already mentioned how some of the styles seems far off to me). On the other hand, I have experience only in Aikido, and I am no expert on sport medicine or calories expenditure... that's why I posted this question, actually.

if you consider the value for Aikido "reasonable" I will be more than happy to use it for my own estimates, thanks.

Thanks. But this is exactly the problem I have with charts: I have some problems believing that Aikido actually burns +35% more calories/hour than MMA. Also, I have trained for years with Iwama Ryu, and whenever I happen to work with Hombu-dojo people I had to work at a much faster pace while here everything is lumped together as "Aikido". I was hoping that a fitness tracker could be more "specific" and "reliable".

The Wikipedia link I included in my answers has a short paragraph for each. Also, you can hit Youtube and get a billion videos of people showing how these work. There is no need for special equipment (I routinely do this even when I am in hotels on a trip) and really take very little time.
