Well, I'm going to need a new title since there's no more judo in my future.

Apparently the only one I was a danger to was myself!

I started judo in september maybe october last year.

I learned that judo is a great sport and with time it has many techniques that can be used in self defense. I also learned it has many techniques that can lead to bad habits in regards to self defense such as relying on the gi and keeping your hands down. Too much grabbing going on when other options are clearly availiable,but clearly this defies judo's purpose.

I also learned that although I am eager to do things like this, my body takes exception.

Brian,

You hit the nail;

Quote:

That's where my striking capabilities usually kick in. There have been WAY too many times where I was like "If he held my lapel like that in a SD situation, I'd just ko him with a elbow shot to the chin".

Quote:

Yes. I hate that many judo-ka when they enter the MMA scene tend to keep their hands down and get hit unneccessarily too many times when going for their throws.

But then again, nothing quite beat the thought that you're able to actually elevate someone up and then slam them head first into the concrete. That, my friend, feels like power, even though it's an illusion.

Hey, I never needed judo to elevate and slam people before.

Also if you notice many judo-ka who enters the striking world have the tendency to stare at the opponent's hand. Seriously, up close the actually tilt their head down and stare at my hand thinking I'll grab them or something and then suddenly smack! Headbutt!

Also one bad thing with gi dependant throwing is that they try to force their way with throws. What I learnt from no-gi throwing is that if something doesn't work, go for something else.

What I got from judo; a clinch that is WAY better than the MT clinch. Judo for upper body, wrestling for lower body. The awesomeness.
