Welcome to Bullshido. I am the worst pedant on this board. As you just noticed, from judo_uk's post, this means different things to different people. Please let him know your rank, in Judo, so the conversation can continue.Quote:
I've been to several Judo clubs,
Not what you think your experience makes your rank, but a rank you actually were awarded from a recognized governing body.
Well, in terms of training, if you grapple with people from different backgrounds at high intensity, that's fine. (I don't think anyone here has taken issue with what you said on that score!) In terms of convincing us, and in terms of backing your review up with proven success, you've provided nothing objective or verifiable.Quote:
I’ve grappled with people who do cage fighting andstood about even at times, why do I need to compete in events when I grappleenough with lots of different people?
Yes. Of course, "easy" is a relative term. It sounds like you do hard sparring in both grappling and striking contexts, which is obviously great. However, I do not expect that you go with the same intensity, let alone the same intent to harm-unless-the-ref-stops-me, that you'd have to muster to be successful in competition.Quote:
You seem to have this idea that we let eachother win, that because we’re with apartner we go easy on eachother
If you approached a review with the mindset or providing advertising, there's a problem.Quote:
I just wantedto give a review on my club, our club has very little advertising
Us nitpickers aren't trying to assume your training isn't good, we've just seen many gyms that "go hard" in all the right disciplines but do it really poorly because the training has been denatured, has wilted like a plant hidden from the sunlight of properly alive testing. And it's often weirdo schools that hate competition, focus on "deadly tricks" and have their own belt system or proprietary mix of styles that fall into these traps. We are only doing some friendly prying in the hopes of finding that we are wrong, and to make sure your review is calibrated like the others.
By resisting I mean, the partner refusing to allow the throwby any means. In competition if you try the same throw again and again, thepartner will have a good idea of what to expect again and again, allowing themto resist with ease. I’m a green belt in Judo, so not a high belt at any means,although in competition at the time, belt didnt matter to me, I just wanted tocompete, all you need is a coloured belt to compete with more advanced guys.
I do understand what it takes to be good at throwing, for your (everyone heres)expectations, no I’m probably not that great. Theres certain throws I feel Ican do well, others which I constantly lose the feel for. Like I said, the clubdoesnt compete, yet many people in the club do other martial arts so they can.All this talk is making me think I may ask the senseis about Judo comps, not toprove anything, but obviously for people to get better and more experienced.
2 Man Attack is literally sparring with one after the other. If it was oneperson it would go too slow since most techniques rely on takedowns. Attacker 1may throw a straight punch, defender blocks and throws attacker to the ground,straight after attacker2 may grab defenders hair, defender uses an armbar topull them to the ground and wrist hold until grip is broken, and so on. Theintensity goes up as your belts do, might sound very robotic yet there are somany combinations several techniques come out before you have to think, whichis what you want really, no wasted time. At a seminar I blocked and grabbed afront kick to my groin, I actually paused and thought “Holy ****, I did not seethat kick, how did I block it,” I have done that technique alot though.
As for the word tricks, replace it with techniques. Sorry I was tired and I hadto answer lots of questions.
All up, my school does sound quite strange compared to more traditional andmodern schools. The website has a good description on how it came to be and Ihave a small book with goes into detail. I’ve found this school works for me,there is alot of techniques. If you can’t do everything perfect you don’t get ablack belt, every black belt I know can do everything perfect, unless they havelost flexibility for several techniques. Theres no way I can prove this, no I’mnot here to advertise, but give a review in hopes to influence others to try itout, I havnt made up anything in my posts.
Anyway, theres only so much information I can give, if I’ve repeated myself itsbecause I can’t prove it, so its up to you whether or not you believe it. I’mhappy to answer any NEW questions, just note I’m not a black belt and not evenclose, I still don’t know half the techniques for a black belt and I’m stillnot happy with half the techniques I know, so there really is ony a certainamount which I feel confident saying.
Your exact Judo rank?
Who awarded you that rank?
Which governing body recognises and endorses that rank?
What Judo coaching or instructor qualifications do you have?
Which governing body issued and recognises those qualifications?
Rank in Judo is Green Belt (Not sure on Japanese names). Awarded by Arek Zygmunt from Ippon Judo Club. Judo Federation Australia (Something like that, I forget) for the rest I assume, its been a while. I have no instructor qualifications in Judo and don't teach it or instruct it. People are going to say I do due to my previous posts, literally all i do is stand at the front and yell out numbers, only time I really instruct people are the children and help them get techniques, if a senior (Someone in the senior class) is to ask me how a technique works I will show them.
In PM Academy I hold a Blue Belt, awarded by many Instructors. I don't think its got any relations to Judo Australia which is why I'm not sure if I'm allowed to compete under my clubs name.
http://www.petermortonjujitsu.org.au/ If anyone is interested in the actual website. It hasnt been updated in a while I don't think, but other than class times, I don't think there is much to change.
Thanks. You are a beginner so, have fun when the advanced degree Black Belts rip apart your previous posts. Have a thick skin and remember to be CLEAR when typing on the internet.
I have a suspicion you really do not understand how many of your posts sound to advanced practitioners.
Yet you pimp and defend the illegitimate club whilst using the legitimate club to try and give credence to your position?
You hold no coaching qualifications yet claim to...
It is clear that as the holder of a beginner rank, holder of absolutely no coaching or instructor certification and utilising the inconsequential rank given to you by a legit Judo club as proof of your suitability to evalute an illegitimate Judo club in comparison to legit Judo clubs.
You need to STFU.
You aren't qualified to pass judgement on any Judo club, you don't have the skills to asess any Judo teaching, you have no Judo coaching qualifications so are unfit to asess any Judo coaching programme, you have no verifiable coaching ability or competency. What it boils down to is that you have a skill differentiator that is in such a low percentile as to make it laughable and yet you think this gives you the perspective, the ability and the right to make judgement on Judo coaching.
What you need to do is STFU go back to the legit Judo club and let the bullshit you've been fed by the Morton jokers be ipponed out of you. Then train proper Judo, get a black belt from the Aussie NGB and get coaching qualifications from the Aussie NGB. Then go back and review Morton's 'Judo' and give an informed perspective on it.
