    So you think she should take the easy option and go with the jujutsu guys? I suppose the BBQs, cocktail nights and pub sessions they have listed on their website do look fun.

    My club doesn't have any women, unfortunately. However, when I get to train at seminars or other dojos, I'm always quite impressed by the women who take it seriously. They tend to have better technique and be more technical than than men at their level, and I suspect its because they're less strong and less likely to rely too much on strength early on. They're also less likely to be macho and ego-driven.

    Speaking for myself (a bloke) I got home from training last night both knackered and bloody sore. I woke up this morning completely 'cream crackered' (Cockney rhyming slang for, er, "very tired and very sore'. I was in Essex where you get HIT - cos that's how they train.

    Trad JJ in the UK can be "very Hands-On". As the OP is in Edinburgh, she could quite easily seek out the Scottish Ju Jitsu Association. They're up there somewhere.

    Morag (forgive me, please) can do whatever she likes Judo/Trad JJ or both. It depends on what's available near her. OTOH, Edinburgh...hmmm...have you tried Rick Young? Trained amateur boxer, trained in Judo, Kali Adept under Dan Inosanto, amongst the first Brit BJJ Black Belts. If you can, seek him out. Good luck.

    I dont know about the less strong thing. I rolled with a couple of female black belts in Canada recently, both about my size, and no way was I going to overpower either of them with my supposedly superior strength. One woman was my age (48) and she was plenty strong.

    Of course, on average, women in the general population will be less strong than men. On the other hand, a small guy like me is not as strong as a lot of the judoka I compete or work out with.

    On average, women are less strong than men than men of equal size. It's just the way things are -- testosterone, body fat percentage, number of muscle fibers, etc. And women are, on average, smaller than men.

    In shape, I'm about 195 and my deadlift is in the low 400s. There are a handful of women in the world who can deadlift that much; I'm not even close to being the strongest guy in my dojo, let alone my gym.

    OP is at the university of St. Andrews in, St. Andrews. She's nowhere near Edinburgh.

    Also the club there is a WJJF club, which teach this larping faggotry:


    I love the bit where after landing all the 'deadly' strikes, he kindly folds the guys legs for him and then whilst crouched does a snap kick to the guys face at 1:07. LOl!

    Or at 2:35 when the attacker puts himself in a leglock as part of his 'deadly attack' sequence.

    Here choice is that bullshit or learning Judo under a competitive female German dan grade.

    The answer is a no brainer, go do the Judo.

    The point of my post was not that women can't do judo because they are weak, that is clearly not true. The point was that as a small woman, the OP is going to face a fair bit of frustration starting out, but should stick it out as it will be worth it in the end.
