Judo Ippon rule leads to bad habbits?
This is a question for the Judo guys and gals :new_evil:
I sometimes watch a Judo club that meets at the same location where my GF takes yoga. I wouldn't mind studying Judo but the hours don't fit with my schedule so I just watch the last ten minutes of their class. :love4:
Last week these higher students were randori and everyone was watching, you could hear a pin drop it was really gripping to watch. One got thrown by a ???hip throw??? and landed on his head somehow. His neck collapsed and I felt a gulp go down my throat becos it looked really nasty but somehow he was ok. Anyway this is what confused me:
The Judo guys were impressed that he had somehow avoided being thrown onto his back because that would have been an Ippon score.
So does judo teach you that it is better to land on your head than your back?
