    Greetings

    Andrew from Cape Town - started training in '87 but had a long break (10+ years) from karate in which time lived in Japan and started iaido.
    Back in SA now and been training for about a year. I train for the enjoyment, stress relief and comraderie - fitness and defence is secondary.

    Welcome
    "Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
    ***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***

    "The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
    ~ The Secret of Judo (Jiichi Watanabe & Lindy Avakian), p.19

    "Hope is not a method... nor is enthusiasm."
    ~ Brigadier General Gordon Toney
