I dont see that they much did, though. You are right about their immediacy - Buddha was Indian and he only managed to arrive in Japan as "chan" or "zen" and then only through the zen of action.
The only way I can see any delay or sublimation or dissolution of the immediate is into massive dream visions like Anime, but these do not represent a loss of grappling-focus. I think. But then I am far from an expert of Anime.
