    Y'know, if I were attending a club where the actual instructor rarely showed up and most of the classes were taught by a douchey shodan with **** technique who spends more time listening to himself talk and showing off for the ladies, I'd go to a different club. Mostly on account of it being a complete waste of time and money.

    Seriously OP, do Judo. It's: Cheap, effective, widely available, damn good exercise, fun, and, most importantly, not fifteen hundred feet up its own ass.

    Then, after you get stronger and decentish at Judo, do some karate, as even if it's useless McDojo **** you'll have the solid skills of Judo to fall back on.

    I think you are confused sir, this is an Aikido thread not a _ing _un thread. Math does not belong here only hippies; and tinkerbells.

    This makes perfect sense. At the highest ranks where critical density has been reached, as with a black hole, time can come to a complete stop; allowing the master to deal with the attacker next week if he chooses.

    On topic (kind of) I didn't dismiss Judo I think it's a good idea and I'll definitely try it, I was just wondering about Karate as I always wanted to learn to punch and kick properly even as an Uke I feel kind of silly launching a Tsuki when I've never been specifically taught how to do it, or a Mae Giri, Yoko, Giri Mawashi Giri, etc.. you get the idea.
    Karate is fun, Just look at my name, but there's a ton of shitty karate. Unless the Karate spars with some sort of realism it's going to be useless.

    MA's like Judo and BJJ, and boxing escape that because competition reveals BS.

    If it's a kata only based Karate or they don't let you spar within a couple classes it is also crap.

    Good luck to you

    Warning: This is a long post that may or may not contain some **** you might not care about; some guy's changes in a training session, whom you've never met (me), and if you don't care I'd advise not reading, just to save your time.

    I just got back from training today...

    I want to thank you guys, with the exception of the last couple of pages that were all bickering and "funny" videos everyone out here has been really helpful, I practiced today with a lot of focus on fitness and non stop work and I can tell you after a 2 hour session I felt like I was going to straight out vomit from exhaustion, it was get thrown immediately get up fast get thrown again etc. Then we had Randori in the end too and I was Uke for 3 people all very fast paced, it was magnificent. I think I'm getting somewhere, this has truly been a learning experience and I'm pleased to have let go of some of my ego (which feels huge sometimes) and really worked on improvement, I didn't say a word in class today in explanation, only the name of steps if my partner was struggling (irimi or tenkan) and overall I could say it's been the best training I've ever had since I started. I was exhausted, a little bruised, and very satisfied.

    I really think I'm getting somewhere at this pace, if I'm winded like this after training it must be improving my fitness right? I'll keep doing this until it doesn't tire me anymore and I'll crank up the intensity a bit more even then.

    Even the people whom have been jerks taught me a thing or two, thanks to all of you, sincerely.

    Oh and I start Judo alongside next month because my club has no space to accomodate me at the moment. I'm still looking into Karate but I'm leaning more towards Judo as advised by most.

    I know I can be a bit provocative but, thank you very much for all the help, and also taking the time to help.

    (To Goju-Joe, yes there's sparring sessions in the Shotokan Karate dojo in my club)
