    why everyone should learn judo!

    the last two days have really given me some great examples on why every single person should do at least one year of judo.

    GOOD UKEMI(falling)

    i went to a concert tuesday and someone cracked their neck after falling from crowd surfing,went out in a strecher. tonight we decide to go sledding and two people get nailed by an out of control sled, one person head dives in to the ground and almost blacks out, and another lands hard on her shoulder and had to make a trip to the hospital

    Judo isn't the only art that you can learn how to do falls from. But I do think one of the most important and useful skills a person can get from martial arts is falling correctly.

    Sometimes people can't control their fall to do a "proper" breakfall, but training it will minimise the damage.

    Anyways I'm not a fan of slapping the ground when I fall.
    That's a whole other debate.

    I used to be great a break falls, used to, why the past tense?
    Have you ever tried a break fall for REAL ??? OUCH !!!!!!
    Also, as you get more advanced in Judo, amny of the throws are designed NOT to be "safe" anymore, so break falls become less "critical" but still important.
    I think you need to keep breakfalls in perspective.

    This is probably the only thing I like about Aikido actually. They have great breakfalls. In fact in Judo I often do my breakfall more like Aikido where I keep rolling and pop back up.

    Exactly, that was the whole other debate. :)
    Hard contact on the freaking ground is no good for anyone.
    Ever slap concrete?
    This was EVEN MORE apparent when I was training JJJ with my two injured wrists.


    Like WhiteShark said, rolling to disperse energy is far more realistic.

    Slapping out is in more than just Judo... should be learned in BJJ as well. Or you could always take the wrestlers mentality of fighting the throw with all you have, and trying to land on your knees/all fours and get up fast. The wrestling version wont help you land, but it will get you in better position if you make it through the throw
