    Maybe "Is better than you" would be appropriate.

    Great article, Rainer, and congratulations on your long and successful judo career. I wasn't so hardcore as you guys, but I was training in the early 70s so nice to hear stories about those old days.

    Yeah, the 70s were great years. I probably could've extended my career by a few more years but injuries and mostly financial issues kept me off the mats after 1976.

    In the 60s, we did a little kendo too, learning how to score, etc. Later on, the wooden swords were just used to hit us when we didn't train hard enough. They made a lot of noise, too. lol.
