Good luck Brian and Bill.

Throw an osoto-gari on your opponent and say it's with love from Taison

Bill did awesome! In the masters division he had some excellent ippon's on his opponent and took first place in that division! He also dominated in the novice division and took first place!
Way to go Gorilla!!

I'm sitting here with my leg in an imobilization brace. (my left knee this time) In my first match in the novice division my left knee went the wrong way inward. I felt and heard the pops,so did my opponent. I forgot where I was during the pain,lol. Everyone did applaud when I got up. That was nice,but boy was I upset.
It may be ligaments or a torn minuscus(sp?). I'm having an mri next week. My knees have been repeatedly injured, so I'm not really surprised.
I took second place in the masters division behind a sandan. I won't tell you my secret behind that.

Nice job in the tourney, Brian. Sorry to hear about the knee, and I hope it gets better soon. I have looked into doing judo, but everyone I know (my age, that is) that is doing it now gets hurt like that.

*meow*

Good Job Brian. Shame about your knee, sorry to hear that. The "Gentle Way" claims another victim.

When you heal up, would you think of competing again?

I've been doing alot of thinking about that the last couple of days.
1. I have to work. I have two kids who solely depend on my support.
2. I hate being injured.
3. I do love judo and competing.
4. I have always had questionable knees. My first knee injuries were in high school. They have troubled me from time to time ever since.

I'm not sure what to do right now. I have atleast a couple of weeks to think about it.

Today my knee is still swolen pretty good. Hurts like hades to straighten or bend too much.

BTW, there were only two competitors in the my weight class in the masters division.

Heck you can only fight who they put in front of you, be it 2 or 200!

Competitions/Gradings are where I have seen people getting seriously injured in Judo. Never seen it happen at a Judo class.

You could maybe contiune with Judo, but forget about the competitions. They were always a bit overrated anyway lol!

Or if you really have a competitive edge, enter Kata Competitions. A lot less brutal I assure you!

I am going to put my neck on the block here by saying this, its something Matt touched on earlier: I think the injury rate in BJJ isn't as high as in Judo. Less throwing in BJJ generally, and throwing/falling are where the damage is done in Judo usually.

As you spend a lot more time on the ground in BJJ too, there is less chance of your knee getting hurt.

I could be wrong, am only basing this on watching BJJ people at my local fitness centre and my two classes I took! Feel free to put me right anyone!

Brian,
I am really sorry to hear about the knee. I have been there before, with an ACL tear and an Ostiochondrial fracture. Take care and listen to your Doctor. Being laid up sucks.

Brian, you did a great job, you just got screwed with the draw in the masters division. If I would have been in the 30-39 age group that brown belt heavyweight would have cleaned my clock. I'm pretty sure you could have won the novice division if you had not gotten hurt, you were as good or better than any of the guys in your weight class. When you went down I felt sick to my stomach, still not sure what happened, the guy came in for kosoto gake then you both kind of collapsed. I would hate to see you leave judo, but I certainly would understand, you've got to make sure your kids are taken care of before anything else. You are very strong on the groud and maybe jujitsu would be easier on the body or maybe we could spend more time doing newaza, not sure what the answer is. If there's anything you need give me a call, you've got my number. BTW I still owe you a couple of tall cold ones!
