    I kept doing Judo up until 1999 when i immigrated to Australia. I arrived in Sydney shortly before 2000 . Found another club and continued. At that point i was pushed back down 4 ranks to 6th Kyu Orange.

    I started actively competing in tournaments in 2002-2003 with varying success. (Under 16) At this time i had worked myself back up to 3rd Kyu and finished the year on 2nd Kyu.
    Nearing the end of the year i was invited to the national team which i declined because i had to move to another city.

    Thats it, roughly 10 years of experience.

    This seems to have a different slant than the first time you peddled this BS,

    But then you edited those posts so you wouldn't get called on it didn't you?

    I don't even remember what i said in those threads (how conveniant). But i think sometimes self moderation is a good way to deal with your own bullshit. I guess we are all guilty in some way of putting a spin on stories to make them sound better then they are because lets face it, facts and figures are boring as hell and not good conversation pieces.
    Unfortunately, we like to deal with facts here,

    and all you seem to want to do is tell "stories".

    Please be more specific. And explain why you lied about it earlier.

    Explain it without using the phrase "the power of myth" or any other recourse to art
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    You trained judo for 10 years and competed 'at the national level' (does that mean you went to Nationals, or does it mean you left your home state at some point?) yet you needed to 'go try a judo and a bjj class' to see what 'alive' grappling was like?

    You don't see where we might see an element of deception in that?

    I am not a Judo guy, but I am pretty damn sure Tomoe nage is NOT banned in tournaments.

    And any one who did Judo for 10 years and can't pull off Tomoe Nage ( one of my favorite throws) is very special indeed.

    It's just the alive rolling that makes it utterly realistic to a degree. I do spar my wing chun in classes, just not for as long and as often as I do BJJ. Far too much time in wing chun is spent doing variations of lok sao/chi sao or situational defenses in an unalive fashion with little resistance. Step sparring is also massively prevalent, and while it has it's purpose, and I enjoy it: it's not really very realistic (even if it is quite freeform).

    Then take into account the type of people who do certain arts. As a vast overgeneralisation, you don't get the faint hearted sticking it out in BJJ, Muay Thai or Boxing...but many wing chun classes are packed with people who don't want to really learn how to fight at all.

    A lot of BJJ is unrealistic in that they don't practice falls or breakfalls that well (at least at my school). Any tachiwaza ends up being the shot or basic sweeps to get people to the floor. Most sparring starts from knees so is unrealistic in that respect.

    Ninjitsu on the other hand is usually plain awful if my experience is anything to go by.

    However, I will agree with Cullion that the fundamental premise of striking is more realistic than ground grappling for the ''street''

    Unless it is a local competition issue, Tome-nage is not banned in competative Judo.
