    Very nice, more impressive because he uses it in competition.

        This seems like an excellent way to get your arm broken in competition.

              It is, but if your job is to win Judo matches its worth the risk and sometimes it works



              Othertimes it doesn't



              Either way the real question is, who doesn't think cartwheels benefit your Judo?

                My thoughts exactly! It's always fun to see people who don't know how to cartwheel try to do them.

                  The translation of the narration in that video is epic. Japanese is so beautiful and condescending all at once.

                    The Japanese are only perhaps rivaled by the English in this regard. I recall a famous climber, almost falling to his death on the Eiger, remarking that "It made me nervous. I almost dropped me fag."

                      That looks like an excellent way to troll in a competition..

                        I can't do a proper cartwheel and I'm a dan grade, but I recognise their usefulness for Judo and won't object to anyone saying cartwheels are beneficial to your Judo.

                        Mind you, my shitty cartwheels are enough to have gotten me off a fair few tomoe nage and sumi gaeshi.

                        My favourite bits are 'like a tiny toothpick' and 'it worked pretty well... until my arm snapped in half'.

                          The "like a tiny toothpick" line actually made me snort. Not only is your arm brittle like a toothpick, but even a toothpick is an oversized comparison for that weak baby arm you wrongly assumed would support you.

                          As for the cartwheels, I would think a shitty one would be better, as it'll plant less weight on your arm and give you less chance to fall the wrong way (away from your belly or backward). I think what's shown in the OP video is a good balance drill but high risk enough to be called stupid when attempted in competition, glorious though it may look if it works.

                            Cartwheels can be useful, but, i think I'll pass on the chance for the snapped arm. also helps he is a lightweight, would love to see some super heavy's go for this.
