    The public transport system in Melbourne is pretty bad, especially around night. A family friends son was beaten up getting on the train a few weeks ago, which has made it difficult to convince the olds.
    Is Melbourne close to Thunder Dome?

    Melbourne is too dangerous. You never know where henchmen of Tina Turner will strike from in Australia.

    Also, chai muggers in the alternative suburbs pushing their indieprogressiverock onto you, violently "Buy the EP, BUY THE EP, FREE LOVE, AND BUY THE EP" *is beaten with giant cup of chai*.
    Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    They say you can tell the people who've caught a train in Melbourne by their eyes. It's such a traumatic experience it irreversibly changes a man.

    back to something vaguely resembling the thread topic...
    YouTube- Matl Sensei - Shime Waza
    "Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
    ***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***

    "The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
    ~ The Secret of Judo (Jiichi Watanabe & Lindy Avakian), p.19

    "Hope is not a method... nor is enthusiasm."

    LOL Sang, I love that the guy with the steak face still has it in him to smoke.

    It's like, what can a couple of drags possibly add to his injuries.

    Well it's been a long time, but I am now enrolled in the grappling program at Dominance and just came home from BJJ.

    It either went awesome or **** depending on your point of view. I loved it. At the end I was ready to die!

    I spent most of the time underneath some 19 year old beginner trying to work an escape but failing. Whoever said it would be a mad workout was absolutely right.

    Well thanks for the help and I look forward to training more in the future.

    Can I just get a quick bit of advice in recovering from training, Time constraints mean I can train on Tuesdays and Saturdays, I want to train Wednesdays as well, and I am usually a bit sore the next day or so.

    It' usually around the groin, chest and shoulders, and stretching doesn't seem to help to much.

    You should be hurting. You should be hurting everywhere. Getting out of bed the morning after should be an achievement. But it's a GOOD kind of hurt.
