    If mat pulls are dragging myself along with just forearms , yes. Competative mat pulls are just asking for PAIN. Got burns on the tops of my toes from the same exersize once aswell

    yeah those are mat pulls. i have heard stories of japanese judo students doing mat pulls until their elbows bled if that puts it into perspective.

    to me it sounds like you may be using only your elbows to pull yourself. i would suggest trying to use your entire forearm from fists to elbows to pull yourself. i also wear ankle supports (mostly because i have arthritic ankles, but also because they protect my insteps from mat burn during mat pulls.) i try to keep my toes just off the mat, but if i keep my feet off the mat, then sensei notices and yells at me :)

    Damn! From that video I can completely see how someone can get burns on their elbows. You're not supposed to pull yourself up with your elbows. Your whole forearm is used, just as you said.

    It seems easier to dig your elbows in. You'll pay later obviously.

    Of coarse the injury occoured because I was to proud to be beaten by the young fellas at the club, so I went as fast as I could, sacrificing my personal safety...but I won!

    The use of the feet is also frowned upon at our club, but I might put in a bit of toe action when no one is looking

    While I'm on the topic, are there any particularly good ways to build stronger joints/bones? Particular exercises, foods or supplements? Additionally, is weight training advisable in tandem with judo? I am interested in becoming a strong person!

    Any replies are greatly appreciated!

    EDIT: @philmgriffin Knee injuries eh? Do tell.
    Best thing is to find a club where they will train you gradually. The main problem I see is that beginners, especially adult beginners, go in all gung ho and over extend themselves, and get injured within a few weeks or months.

    Take it gradually. If you go into a club and they throw you into randori (sparring) right away then reconsider training there.

    I had a student who was a very gifted professional piano player. As in playing gigs with well known jazz musicians in New Orleans, as well as being an attorney. He was a brown belt. He eventually gave up Judo because of worry over his hands.

    How about hyperextension from arm bars? I got a bad elbow injury from being too brave against an arm bar - not great :(
