    However, despite the fact you suck, you continue to train and compete, which means, in reality, you don't suck.

    I can't explain Hiza Guruma online, I won't even try. It's one of those experiential things. I could show you, but it would still take a lot of focus on just HG for a while for you to maybe get it.

    Unlike Tsurikomi Goshi, it's transcendental. So...spherical or something like that. Plus, most people leave a huge suki for it all the time. (kendoka like you will get that, LOL).

    Did you have a transcendental experience that completely changed your style of posting?

    Good to see you around still, though.

    This is so true! As a lowly Kyu grade, I have had some success in early competitions and thought I was progressing - Alas, at a competition on the weekend, I got thoroughly smashed and have had to reset my expectations (and ego). My aim now is to heal (as I injured my knee in my second match on the weekend), get back on the mat and train harder. It is a tough art that we have chosen, but when you can pull off a beautiful throw or transition, it really does make it worth it.

    Every moment is a transcendental experience for me. Neil is a big boy he can handle normal male humor mode.

    Although not beginner level, kata garuma is pretty simple - what about that?

    Two problems there--one, you have to get really low for kata guruma. Makes it harder for a tall person, esp. against a short one. And two, kata guruma isn't legal in competition anymore. It's still taught (at least in kata--that was the first time I'd ever done it) but nobody I know of really drills it or does it in randori.

    JTerrier - agree that it's not legal anymore, so maybe only for "experimental" sessions in the dojo . I was thinking of the kneeling variation, where it works if you're taller. Anyone ever tried this variation?
