It was indeed a blast. You know, they make sword-sized action flex high impact weapons...
Yeah Rhyos, that wasn't me mate. I don't think we were introduced, same with WalksWithBruce. Will make it a point next TD, we can do some furious foam fooming goodness. I've got enough of a background in FMA that I can at least hold the stabby stick by the non-sharp end!
Nah, it wasn't as hard contact as it sounds by the cracks. I was just lazily swinging 30-40% kicks. My opponent told me he got all exited and switched into full when he finally got me on the ground, but oh well, he's like 18-20 & no harm done. It was fun.
One thing I learned: it's harder to pull people around and sweep them from underneath without gi grips, I guess I need to do some no-gi newaza at some point down the line.
Thanks for posting. I think my personal favorite striking of the day was me vs. Duncan first without headgear. It was supposed to be low intensity to warm-up, but was my most frantic paced sparring of the day.

Nooo my sucessful harai goshi of Southpaw isn't in the judo, just me getting wrecked over and over. Oh well, that throw sustained me for a good 3 weeks already of not throwing anyone in Judo, so I guess I got my throw's worth regardless.
LOL. I actually hacked YouTube and edited it out!
SJ thanks for posting!
Danny has been working the rubber guard with us because of this exact problem.
