Nice attitude in this Judo Dojo
I came across this Honolulu Judo site: http://home.hawaii.rr.com/shobukan/ and I was really impressed with these statements:
"Shobukan has an “open door policy” and invites beginning, transferring and visiting judokas to train in its dojo. Beginning students are slowly conditioned (physically and mentally) to the rigors of judo. Their senseis do this by utilizing moving drills as well as mind development techniques.
Intermediate and advanced judokas continue to learn physical and mental techniques. They also spend a great deal of time practicing randori or freestyle sparring."
This sounds so healthy. I've been told before that I could only work out in a school as long as I didn't train anywhere else. While there are some (a few) good reasons to avoid cross training, usually it's just politics.
Judo has the best rep going for keeping away from all the 'deadly' nonsense, being a full contact realistic sport. This Dojo shows a lot of confidence and openness - I wish more schools could take this attitude.
