    I was curious, I didn't take anything personally, and I'm glad things worked out for you.

    Well here's another surprise for you: I'm not a blackbelt. I was collecting points for my shodan when I injured myself three years ago and haven't done tachi waza since. I've done the nage no kata for blackbelt twice now, as an uke. I'm a pretty good uke, apparently. Was going to be three times before my knee went.


    Thanks for taking the time to explain the provenance of the leg grab rules again. I get how it came about, but I'd thought it was initiated by Japanese traditionalists running the IJF. It's an amateur sport federation, I guess the directorship is elected and multinational then?

      That aggression is exactly what works to your advantage if you train a "soft within hard" martial art...judo, shuai jiao, BJJ, Hung ga all have those elements, designed to take an aggressive grappling opponent's attack, and use/redirect it to your advantage.

      In judo or BJJ there is a whole range of elements (even at low belts...), in Hung ga it's a bit simpler..twelve bridging methods define how to react when facing an aggressor relying on brute strength, to receive/bridge their attack, and redirect/counter in one move. A lot of the Hung ga leg and stance and footwork is eventually combined to do basic things like grapple and sprawl, so it's a great style for fighting other wrestlers/grapplers.

      Many people think of Hung ga as just a striking art...far, far from it.
      Wrestlers are strong. They do not rely on brute strength. It's just another tool in the toolbox. You are making weird, dumb generalizations.

      BTW, I don't know why everyone else is picking on you, but posts like these are why I now am.

        You're correct on the major point, but wabbit isn't being picked on despite his playing victim.
        Wabbit continuously makes stupid posts on a site that encourages skepticism, and he's a self described beginner.
        He just needs to stfu and learn this lesson.
        Of course, I'm "ignored" so he'll never see this...

          I HATE it when people try to have an opinion regarding matters of fact. You're (not you, the general you) not entitled to beliefs that are factually incorrect. People are supposed to CHANGE THEIR MINDS WHEN SHOWN THEY'RE WRONG!!! Grr...

          My best friend is schizophrenic, and I get so exhausted trying to shine logic on his weird political and spiritual views. How do you convince someone of anything once they've convinced themselves remote viewing is a real thing?

            OK, so you are a shodan in waiting. Close enough...

            The IJF is....not an egalitarian, democratic institution. It is not an amateur sport federation, it's a sports-industry business, and is essentially profit driven. Like soccer, etc., but on a bit smaller scale...so far.

            The IJF was at one time much more of what you think it is, and WAS run by the Japanese, more or less. But not anymore.

            Another bit of info, the Kodokan is a private dojo that has no say whatsoever in what happens in the IJF.

              Greed and corruption seem to be unfortunately endemic of amateur sport federations. Even without corruption, I believe that putting profits above the good of the sport to be a negative focus for an organization like the IJF.

              To be included in the olympics, a sport needs an international federation that has the positive growth of the game as a focus. This should promote all the benefits of sports and spread them to people who otherwise couldn't access them, but instead we have an incredibly corrupt IOC and similar corruption running rampant in big federations. I hope judo can be protected from this.

              This makes sense now, as I'd heard that the Kodokan issued its own belts and such.

                You're asking this about a schizophrenic?

                  I did judo again last night. went in to the north school sine I was out in the area and I ended up staying fro striking sparring, advanced Bjj rolling and 2 judo classes back to back. My break falling is awful lol.

                  I crushed my nuts the first few falls off of the hip toss. It turns out I was doing my harai goshi wrong also.

                  I got to play abit at the end using my wrestling against pure judo and I noted that the greco style back arch stuff worked well against judo as it's very hard to turtle after one. I usually ended up in kesa.

                  Doing some ground work with a green belt I definitely noted alot of retreating to turtle. It was pretty easy to position to the back but I had to work a bit for seatbelt and hooks. Tight waist and chop and 2 on one bar rides worked well.

                  I think wrestling and judo are pretty similar, but just have different focuses, the way they apply leverage is pretty similar imo. Our kuzushi is suually a fake, defended shot reshot, or head tap to create movement.
