    This, this and omg this. All the injuries I've received from my dalliances with Judo were due to falling incorrectly. If you're not doing that right, even a very gentle throw or trip could end up causing you some trouble.

    joint supplements are readily available and some people swear by joint supplements containing hyaluronic acid, Collagen, chondroitin and glucosamine.
    I couldn't swear to there effectiveness because:
    1, I have not taken them personally and
    2, I haven't seen any studies that show real benefits.

    weight bearing activity is a good idea I liked full body circuit training 2 or 3 times per week squats and deadlifts are a must (imho) but there are people on here with a much better idea of what you should be doing in a strength training package specifically for Judo.

    in 2 years of judo i have sprained both wrists, torn my quadriceps and separated my AC joint (shoulder) but i tend to be accident prone.

    i'm a systems admin, so the wrist injuries did affect my ability to type.

    if you're too precious to risk injury then maybe judo isn't for you.

    Clavicle fractures are the most common form of fracture. (In general, not just in judo)

    A little known provision in the proposed IJF rule changes is the requirements for 3rd Dan will mandate a certified letter from an orthopedist providing proof of reconstructive knee surgery.

    I think a good idea would be to ask the head instructor of your potential school/s and see how they react to that question. That will tell you a lot about how their school operates, and give you an idea of what kinds of injuries are sustained in their training.

    Can I just show them the scar instead? Look for my judo bb tag when they implement this. I'll be jumping straight from whitebelt to san dan.
