Repeat after me, my son.
"O my God, I am heartily sorry
for having offended Thee,
and I detest all my sins,
because of thy just punishment,
but most of all because they
offend Thee, my God,
Who are all-good and deserving
of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help
of Thy grace to confess my sins,
to do penance
and to amend my life. Amen."
~Act of Contrition
In nomine Patri, Spiritus Sancti, et Feli.
Now say three "Our Father"'s and a "Hail Mary" and join Judo.
In nomine Kano, Kimura, et Gracie, amen. Go forth and booj no more.

Tell us more about your experiences.
they refused to let me train at full speed. they would do one technique, let us do it like 3 or 4 times then do something else. everything has to be done SLOW. i tried to do something fast and with some power and they said, no, do it slow and learn it.
how can i learn something bu doing it slow only like 3 times??
then, they dont really kick. they made me learn to do a "pushing" front kick. even when we were close enough to punch, they made me do some ninjer push kick thing.
i asked someone what happens when if i go on the ground, and his answer was well dont go on the ground. WHAT THE **** KIND OF ANSWER IS THAT?!
how about some free sparring i said. they replied no, too deadly could kill. blah blah blah every strike is going to mame or kill. solarplexes will kill in 3 shots.
and they dont even punch!!! they do those isshinryu style punches but somehow every single punch lands into a horse stance, then the defender punches my elbow or arm and then is supposed to punch me like 4 times, kick out my leg then kill me!!
I went through the same thing but with Aikido. Got the same "don't go to the ground comment". Stopped after about 4-5 months when I passed my first belt test. Started BJJ and will be getting back into Judo starting next week. I really suck at BJJ, I keep trying to do Judo instead of pulling guard on stronger guys. Then they take my back and choke me out. But I have fun, learn lots, and I know its real.
Release the shackles that is the booj!
some of the stuff does work, i actually got into a fight and used it. not really a fight, the guy just came behind me and grabbed me in a bear hug, dropped my knees and weight, elbowed the fucker, threw him over my hip and proceeded to kick him in the face until he got blood on my shoe.
i think thts the only thing i liked was the grabbing and stuff caus esome of it does work, we practiced that full force, but nothing else.
the lack of free sparring and everything else i said, man, i think going just practice sparring or grappling in my back yard with friends is better than that crap.
i got into a ring with my friend whos a boxer, he just punched me until i decided to grab him, drop my weight and get on top.... then i realized i could be doing that without getting punched if i just took up BJJ or judo... man.. EPIPHONY!!!! if i spelled that right..
i still want to wear the cool ninjer suit for halloween though.
And the Lord saidith unto me, Poppith the shackles of the booj, go forth and train in real martial arts, then, fastith for 40 days and nights, come back to the booj honbu and spankith all that wearith black.
