    A Question of Ethics(Judo)

    I've been taking Judo for about a month already and there is a competition coming up in a few months time.
    I want to take part in it but as a white belt, Newaza techniques are off limits and that means that i'm at a disadvantage because my throws aren't that great but my Newaza can par that of a brown belt.

    My question is, what are the ethical implications of putting on a belt (for competition) that allows me the use of newaza?(Supposing any instructor would even allow it)
    I suppose its also against the rules in Judo, huh?

    Or should i just suck it up and go train like everyone else does and earn my belt?

    Screw the ethical implications, the mere fact you're asking about it makes you look like a right cocknose.

    Yes it's against the rules to be a cheating cockwad. You're taking Judo to work on your throws. Not to beat everyone in newaza and take some pride in saying "BJJ winz again!111".

    Plus, if you did enter a higher belt level, they'd probably throw you around so you'd never get the chance to go to the ground anyways.

    Stop bitching Shard. We all suck at something, but at least most of us don't try to resort to petty tricks and **** to try and cover our faults but actually go out there, get beat and learn and grow from the experiences.

    If you're afraid of getting thrown around then don't compete because you're obviously too much of a ***** to do it without cheap tricks and lies. **** you, **** you standing, **** you with a stick.

    Shard - you're a douchebag for even asking this. I hope you get your ass handed to you.

    You are as big a fag as Shard on this. He's stupid for asking, you're stupid for answering. The answer was as collossally as the question. **** yourself.
