Having recently moved from a place with excellent Judo and BJJ, to a place with really bad Judo, I have had quite a bit of trouble adjusting. For the most part I let sleeping dogs lie and don't bother these bullshido peddlers, but these guys just give Judo a bad name and deserve to be outed. Just check this **** out.

You know whats sad. These could easily be totally legitimate Judo blackbelts...

EDIT: Although you seem to have gone to war with them on youtube, so have fun with that.

Here is their website: http://www.mudoryu.com/

I don't think they are legit. Apparently his teacher, Carl Brown, calls himself Shihan and claims to be 8th dan. This is just pathetic - it really makes me sick to my stomach because I love Judo so much. Seeing people denigrate this way just makes me ill. You should watch the user's other videos - they are worse.

Like this...

You could well be right. I know Judo blackbelts who's Judo is as bad as in these videos. One who turned up at our club as a brown belt, from a club run by a well respected NGB 6th dan. He knows nothing about Judo literally nothing he managed to spaz his way through some brown belts and god knows how he passed the theory but he did and now he's a dan grade. He still doesn't know any Judo and he has about as much skill as the people in this video.

Judo is in a sorry state of affairs in many places. That's why I started writing my fundamentals series and other threads here on bullshido. To try and stop the rot.

You're lying, Judo is bullshido-free. YOU'RE LYING YOU LYING LIAR!!

I can throw a better Osoto than that, especially on a non-resisting opponent.

Their website even has sport vs street crap on it. I guess the good thing is that there a dozen more legitimate Judo clubs to take its place.

Cheers. Well Judo is about education and I've been privileged to been taught by some good people so I feel obliged to share what little I know. As my mentor told me when I got my dan grade - Pass it all on.

You'd be surprised at the difference a competent uke can make.

Shitty technique vids aside, the website is a goldmine of comedy. The juji gatame PDF is a riot all on its own. The tori in the pictures looks like he's about to die from exhaustion, there's a picture of Bruce Lee doing an arm bar while yelling and throwing up an index finger with his free arm, and then there's this gem of a quote:


If uke gets his head between your legs, the kingdom is lost. The PDF also goes on to mention that uke may, just may, decide to stop being cooperative if you try to arm bar him. Thanks for the advice, I guess.

On another part of the website, we're told the following about "Mu Do Ryu":


"Mu Do" means "Unconstrained path". Perhaps a native Japanese speaker would call that incorrect, but it's my Dojo, so there.

So he knows (or at least suspects) that "Mu Do" doesn't mean what he thinks it does, but he doesn't care. As long as the kanji looks cool, who cares what it actually means, right?

And finally, WTF is "bushido judo"? I'd never heard of it before seeing this site, but apparently sensei Loomis holds a sandan in it. Wouldn't "bushido judo" just be classical Japanese Jujutsu?

Also, apparently at this school they roll "on the matts" and teach a technique called "hiza garuma", proving that proper spelling is not a necessary component of their judo.

Put all this together and you have the ingredients for some sweet judo-flavored bullshido.

Lol I hadn't spotted the website link before. The stuff on there is just wrong in about every aspect. Also does anyone attend the club who isn't bordering on the obese?

Also this Hiza guruma:

I actually feel sorry for the poor uke look how his knee is being forced to flex the wrong way because tori has done pretty much everything wrong.

When I rule the world the Kodokan will have the power to send cease and desist notices to idiots like this.

I've seen worse, but I don't really consider that to be a great example of Judo. I notice the website says "Bushido Judo", anyone have any clue what that is?

It isn't a thing. There a various associatons in the UK and seemingly in the US that claim to teach Bushido Judo or are Bushido associations that teach Judo Bushido Za Zen spring to mind.

Mostly they're filled with fat bullshitters who after failing to meet the standards for anything more than 1st kyu or shodan headed off to their own associations where they could talk **** and circle jerk promote themselves to 8th dan. Standard bullshidoka procedure.

EDIT:
Pretty sad when a black has to stiff arm a white belt.

Even if we could get the majority of the Judo community to agree that these guys are crap and shouldn't be teaching, What could we do? Demote the guy?

Besides. I'd send this guy to make the point...

I really feel for those white belts.

agreed, that highlight video is pretty rough. On the plus side one moderately capable grappler of any discipline could sign up there, smash everyone and feel like a "big man". Self Delusion is a hellava drug.
