    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I have been lucky the two places that I have done judo both have had floating floors one on tires and the other similar to the Denver Judo floor http://www.judocalendar.com/Howtobui...atingFloor.pdf

    It really does make Judo a lot easier on the body.

    the only times i have played on a sprung floor were at the kodokan, but it's really nice. my dojo has 2 layers of tatami, which helps.

    It's more that the way judo is practiced is hard on the body. Being that it is seen mostly as a competitive sport these days, people train very hard, because nobody likes to lose. The fact that one CAN practice judo full speed in relative safety means that people (especially young people) tend to go as hard as they can, whether it's appropriate or not.

    All my (serious) injuries in Judo over the last 32 years came from competition training, mostly randori. One came from a very skilled and high ranked judoka, and I was told years later it wasn't an accident. The other came from one of my own students, about 3 years ago, while competing in a regional shiai in the same weight division with him and one of my other senior (ikkyu both of them) students. Before that, I'd NEVER bee seriously injured in a shiai.

    So, judo is as rough as you make it. Personally, I think that the super hard randori is over-rated as a training tool, although it IS necessary. For sure, noobs tend to get introduced to it and more "normal" randori in general way too soon, and usually without sufficient training to be safe. This is a problem with the sensei/coach, not the students.

    My sensei/coach and I both were heavy duty competitors...he was -95 kg, I was -65 kg. We trained very, very hard together, so hard that my Dad (I was a teenager) watched once, and had to leave the dojo (he told me that later).

    In any case, you can learn effective judo without killing yourself or getting seriously injured.

    But it's so much damned fun to go balls to the wall...
    The hard style of randori is necessary for higher levels of competition as part of contest preparation. The competition style of randori requires preparation...it's not for out of shape noobs (or out of shape anybody). You work up to it slowly. It's not necessary for little kids, either.

    Part of the whole problem with judo is the loss of everything related to anything other than competition.

    Yep, very nice indeed. Little known secret, most modern tatami are not rated by the manufacturers for use on an non-floating floor. They make extra thick ones for that, which means extra expensive.

    IMO it's a huge liability for judo shiai, where any sort of underlayment is usually not used.

    Floating floor makes a huge amount of difference in training. nage komi becomes a much more useful method of training.

    Two layers works pretty good as well. Way better than nothing, for sure.

    I tried a judo floating floor. Reminded me of pro wrestling- falling with a proper breakfall wasn't painful at all, it just converted the impact into dramatic sound energy.
