    I moved it to this thread because I wanted to clean up the FAQ thread. I figure any questions about the FAQ or additions can go here.

    I'm currently taking combat hapkido. However, I'll be leaving the area in the next year and am considering taking up Judo in my new location. I've read alot of arguments that it is a very affective method of self defense, but I've also heard counter arguments saying that too many of the techniques rely on grabbing your opponent's Gi to be street effective. Just looking for some knowlegable feedback. Thanks alot

    Dude... a gi is quite like clothes. Lots of folk wear clothes. Lots of folk can be thrown into the hard, unforgiving concrete. Cue red stains.

    Unless you live in a tropical climate year round, I'm guessing you've heard of a thing called a jacket.

    In the northern climes they are quite common.

    Sweatshirts work well too.

    lighter shirts work, but usually only once or twice.

    So do it right the first time.


    If you live in the tropics, then go join the BJJ Jihad (no Gi Sect)
    If you can't laugh at yourself,
    Others will be happy to do it for you. :evil6:

    The 2 most abundant elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity.

    There's ways to adapt and use techniques regardless of what your opponent is wearing. Also, like it's been mentioned, most clothes work just fine for techniques. They just tend to tear under too much force.
