Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
Yea I now he is fighting Sean Liddell. Good luck! I can't believe he diss'd me when I am coming all the way from Germany to Atlanta/NAGA on 6 May to fight in California!
The competition is May 6th, check out thr flyer on our website www.outrival.org. the address is:
Turnverein Garmisch 1868 e.v.
(It is one the "back road" going to the artillery Kaserne, the one where the PX is located)
There will be a "superfight" between our instructor Rudolfo Amaro and Lutre Livre German Champion Andreas Schmidt. No punching, only grappling, but it should be an exciting fight.
Most of the fighting will be our guys, including me, at the blue belt/white belt level. Using mainly BJJ rules, both GI and NO GI.
Come on down! We have a good time. I usually fight my arch nemsis Jörg Schütz, a judo black belt who is very, very good at Judo. Also about 45 years old. For some reason, everyone always gets excited when we fight! Both of us don't know why because we are really good friends and both simply enjoy the fight! He always beats me though in the end!
Yeah, yeah, you're just being mean! Actually, whilst not an aikidoka, I am a student of aikido. I think it's a fascinating art, that is, mostly, poorly taught. It's also an interesting modern vignette of how ryuha formed, splintered, regouped, split again. Sometimes watching aikido politics is sort of like watching a slow train full of beer heading for a washed out bridge ...

... they have warmed up a little more to the traditional jujitsu stuff as having applications!
I love it when they give me those "gifts".
Sometimes our training is kind of like watching paint dry. We'll spend the entire class on one idea; sometimes, we just love to play. Love to have you on the mat, bro.
I will come on up and play I am really interested in exploring your classical/traditional training as well as I get enough of the "hardstuff".
Shhhh! Dagnabit, man, it's supposed to be SECRET!!! :qbluewack
Also that secret CHI ball technique you keep telling us all about.
You forgot, it's not my finger the chi comes out of ... ahem.
I like the part where you point your finger across the mat and uke goes flying! I really want to learn that! (Man you are in trouble now!) :)
Sounds like a blast. I'll try to grab Miguel and come down!
