    Man is it ever gonna piss off Asia that GJJ/BJJ has closer ties to Pre WWII Kodokan Judo than what he does now. LOL.

    It depends on how he does his Judo. Our Judo goes from being very Kosen to Kodokan to joint locks and stuff like that for self defense, depending on which of our instructors is teaching.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    good article but has a few glarin 'issues'
    major one is the judo beat every other style, most of the 'judoka' were in fact higherly expereinced jujutsu masters who had alined with kano in order to preserve there teachings etc, the main one was a holder of menkyo kaiden in Daito Ryu, ill try and dig out his name, but all in all intersting, not quite sure on the gjj thing either, seems to piss judo people of the gjj is better for free fightin etc,
    ill finish by pointing out that kodakan dan grades arnt recognised by the judo ruling bodies in the west, wierd hey,

    Very informative article. I showed it to my instructor who in his eighties is proud not to have strayed from pre-1947 JUDO
