    Injuries I know of (or saw) first hand from people I trained with doing judo: broken clavicle, torn knee ligament, busted shoulder (me), busted lip.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Perhaps it's worthwhile to lift weights for a while and build muscle for protective purposes before going out for judo classes, then? I'd also do this in tandem with running to build stamina and strengthen my body some more.

    Cheers.

    Stop being a wuss mate and go join a class, I am quite old to be starting Judo (36), and have survived my first 3 months, and it was hard randori from day one. Just beware of the spazzing new guys or the lower grades with muscle and no technique, and also don't be the spazzing new guy.

    The only thing I worry about are my ears, so I am very 'ear aware' whilst training. Way I see it if Royce Gracie still has normal looking ears then so can I.

    Nah, just do it!
    You can't really get a feel for Judo until you have given it a go.
    Find yourself a friendly class that is well run and supervised then get on the mat and have a go.

    Good luck.

    I've been told cauliflower ear is a genetic thing. Some guys get it and some are immune.

    My injuries while involved with Judo have been a torn/separated AC joint (shoulder) and some weird thing with my fingers where they got all stiff and sore in the mornings. But I think I was just gripping too hard. Other than that, just the occasional bump and bruise.

    False. It is certainly not genetic. It is a contact injury and results from not treating the damaged cartilage in your ear properly. There may be a predisposition to getting hurt more easily or something. But cauliflower ear can happen to anybody.

    Just do it.

    You could spend your whole life preparing and it would still not guarantee you wouldn't be injured.

    Stop looking for reasons not to start and just get started.

    It's illegal to attack the fingers. Nevertheless you do see a lot of taped fingers around. If as a beginner you avoid the whole grip fighting game thing that would be helpful. As others have pointed out avoiding gripping the inside of the sleeve is also a good idea - its illegal to protect the attacker's own fingers.

    Having said that I haven't had a finger injury in the 8 years or so I've been back in judo as an adult. But then my club is recreational.
