    i don't find the day to day training of a middle aged mediocre judo shodan to be particularly interesting or useful to post about (although my journey from white to black belt is all in my training blog, and i think people might get something out of that.) plateaus are real but not a particularly good forum topic.

    by far my most interesting training lately has been in the use of firearms so that's what i've been posting about.

    Not saying it never happens, just not the norm anymore. Politics is more exciting I suppose.

    Intellectual stimulation from Judo is fairly limited, although some judoka can argue endlessly about stuff that does not matter so much in terms of physical performance.

    A lot of the more historical stuff is regurgitated mix of myth and legend, "my sensei said so, so it is true" kind of thing. The Old Judo Forum had some folks who were real historians of Japanese MA, speak and read Japanese, and are/were immersed in the culture...real researchers.

    I'm not one of those, but I learned some interesting stuff while that was active. Research is ongoing, but quite a bit of it is proprietary.

    Grappling is grappling, more or less, variations on the theme, so to speak. The older I get, the more I realize that is true. Rulesets vary and influence different flavors of grappling, as does history, etc.

    Yeah, something new is helpful to break the routine. So much of any training is mastering basics, and then repetition, and so much of success is limited by innate physical capability.

    My kids are almost both teens now, and don't do Judo, so I am almost more interested in other sports now. Once they head off to college, I don't know what I'll do...I used Judo as place to hide from my not so good first marriage for too long, although I was younger then and could still get out there and actually do Judo. Gotta live point forward though, so I just keep on moving forward as best I can.

    You cast the first slurp, Bnet.

    Seriously, when was the exact last time you rolled with a punch.

    Stop trolling, his silence is deafening me.

    They quit posting on those places because they're busy training.
