    Is it the throwing or the falling? If it's the throwing, my guess is that you should stop for sure. If it's the falling, I too have some neck problems from an old injury. It helps to keep your chin tucked and stay relaxed when you fall. If you are tensed up as you fall, you get that little whiplash thing going on that will screw with a neck injury. I also loosen up prior to practice with a variety of neck stretches incorporated into the routine. Don't use me as an example though, because I am an old fucker that hurts everywhere most of the time.

    (as MT well you have quite a lot of neck grabing during the clinch)
    Yes, cause getting kicked in the head is oh so good for the neck.

    I've kickboxed before and I learned one thing. I don't like getting hit. Taking a stray elbow or knee in the course of Randori is ok, but it's something totally different for me when I know it's coming.

    Stick with judo, but see if you can start working on the kata aspect. You can still compete and I feel it is much more controlled in the way you fall. My instructor tells me that I should do kata if I want to compete because he feels I am too old (36). I just think it is because I suck.

    Well its better than getting hit with a planet on your back and neck again and again and again
    Also he does not have to go Full-contact everytime he can do shadow boxing, hitting the bag and the mittens and when he fells alright go for some sparring

    Kyokushin is excellent you dont have face punches so you dont have to worry about looking like quasimodo

    In this thread:

    People give OP the same advice you would give someone signing up for their first ever judo class!

    But seriously, BJJ is probably going to be a lot better for your neck, but not 100% safe. I'm sure you know better than anyone else here what your capabilities are, and what you can/can't handle.

    If judo's your thing, a striking art will be pretty dull for you, but BJJ will be a much more natural transition.

    Now compare what your suggesting to him doing a child art of the art he is already doing that has very little planet hitting.

    broken neck, don't wanna do judo anymore?
    start doing arnis/eskrima, or find a chen-style taijiquan teacher who knows how to fight, you'll have fun.
    "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)

    "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...."

    started bjj this month, it's fun and I'm really surprised (I know I shouldn't Be) how inadequate I feel on the ground despite my years in Judo. Anyway, I've had no pain no stiffness and I can function afterward. I think it was a goos move.
