    My point was that clothing rips much easier than a Judo Gi, it would be pretty awkward to try a tai otoshi for example on a guy with a t-shirt.

    You know what the longer I do martial arts the less I feel I know, it just comes with the territory. The more you do the more you see you have room to improve.

    well of course you can always be better, like you can always be better etc. but i mean, how long did it take you to be able to toss some unskilled violent bastard? my coach says most sports require 5-7 years before technical mastery. after that it's fine tuning the technique and basically training more for physical performance. does this apply to judo? the 5-7 years thing before knowing what ur doing?

    First, almost everyone wears a belt. Second, if I grab your t-shirt right in the center and twist and wrap, it is NOT going to tear and I am going to launch you to the moon.

    People who do legitimate Combat Judo will take an underhook, turn it into a shoulder lock, and then make your life very painful; or just tie you up and dump you hard or into ground work.

    Yeah, anyone who says you need a gi to do judo is full of ****. If anything nogi grips make it more dangerous because you can't see what they're doing.

    ..check this guy out, his opponents are not wearing a shirt of any kind

    I was play fighting with one of my co-workers with a cotton hooded sweater and it was so easy to choke him with the hood I was shocked it worked so well

    unfortunately, your point revealed how little you know about judo and grappling. keep training man.

    this is very true for us mortals. as you progress, your awareness of the sport changes. your technical and situational recognition of others and yourself grows and you reach a point where you can actually spot others' and yourself's deficiencies and realise how friggin' large those holes are......

    Coach Josh is best at judo, because Coach Josh knows his Judo is paltry.
