    Congrats on the Belt.

    Curious of this ultimate truth. That belt will give you a black gi.

    So you've got a black belt in Kyokushin and now feel able to start a real martial art?

    A little more humility on your part, I think, young man.

    I'd just use one of those Kyokushinkaikan baseball bat breaking kicks on a wise ass Judoka; when they move in smack the **** out of their leg and they'll lay down and cry. Seriously, I wish you well in Judo and one of my last injuries was in karate class sparring a Judoka and when clinched forgot myself and went for osoto gari (us KK guys know a couple throws....) and being a Judoka he was more than willing to reverse me and crush my body - as long as I kept to stand up he was happy enuf eating strikes and sticking to our rule set (Judokas usually really suck at sport karate sparring and kickboxing), but once I went for a throw his darn training responded. To my demise. But also seriously, as a KK bb, you know enuf kicks so once you get some sprawl and throws down those Judoka will be a piece of cake. They don't do leg attacks. And either does fucking Kempo (cursed by cross training, pfl's motto), but I'll shut up and go get another beer now.

    P.S. I am curious, any blood or good stories from your testing? I got my cheek split open (not going to the head was not an option in my KK dojo) and Sensei said, "No problem, keep fighing."

    I'm going to start kicking random pine trees and punch roof tiles.
    There's actually a Judo club at my college in Cheney!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    You know that unless it was mentioned, people would mistake you for a much older man here.
