    Pain is weakness leaving the body.

    Congrats on your new love, AAL.

    Congratulations - a few Judo words of wisdom passed on to me since I started - rememeber if ypu are using strength a lot its because youve got crap technique, dont stiff arm, as a beginner if you are getting thrown you are learning faster than if you are not getting thrown, randori is NOT a competition so experiment, dont waste all randori grip fighting if you are beginner and most importantly = have fun !

    QFT. I almost blew out my one good knee the other night resisting a takedown after it was already a foregone conclusion....and I'm usually a lot smarter than that (good thing I'm retardedly flexible). It's almost a skill in itself to learn to judge exactly the point when to yield and just get thrown.

    I realized that when I was wrestling with some national champion masters wrestler. He almost broke my back. He was like "Why is that guy grabbing at my clothes?" More often, though, I have injured other people who resist or put themselves in a position by underestimating my skill, size, or weight. For some reason, I weigh more than I look.

    If you want good Judo these things well help:

    1. Avoid taking a high collar or over the back grip.
    2. Work on your ashiwaza.
    3. Avoid makikomi and sutemi waza until you have a good grasp of the basics.
    4. Develop combinations.
    5. Concentrate on long term benefit over short term results.

    When you go to a training session remember you're there to learn not to win.

    don't forget to cut your nails, keep them really short, if you don't when somebody breaks your grip It will hurt really bad, even if it don't take your fingernail off it f*ken hurts
