    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How much randori for a 2nd degree Judo BB?

    Guy I work with says he's a 2nd degree black belt in Judo so I figure he could give me a few pointers and maybe show me some humility. I've had some training in Judo, BJJ and submission grappling and am pretty athletic and move around good for someone of my ample girth.... Yes Roy Nelson kinda girth...

    Anyway it didn't turn out well for my coworker.

    I thought to get a BB in Judo you had to win competitions or do well in tournaments.

    Maybe I should enter some old, fat man grappling tournaments and impress my wife if this is the competition I would be going against.

    He might have lied about his status. It is also possible that he hasn't trained in a while and has 'ring-rust'.

    Yet another possibility; your cross training is effective girth and all.

    Depends on a lot of factors. A black belt in Judo does not equal invincibility. Go work out at a big, competitive club and see what happens.

    As well as the possibility of him being a turd and Gordo being the Roy Nelson of gi grappling. The '2nd dan' the guy claims could be from one of the unrecognised bullshit orgs or he may have been a beneficiary of Porter's largesse.

    Not here in Canada. It's possible to get nidan starting as an adult and never set foot in the shiai-jo.

    Is he actively training Judo or was is something he's did and quit?

    I say enter some competitions and see how well you stack up. Be warned several of the old men are more Overeem than Nelson.
