    I'm going to sign up for judo Monday


    I've been researching different options in my area, and it looks like I'll be taking Judo here starting Monday. It's a good club, and cheap, $20/month, which is important, as I'm unemployed right now.

    I was really torn between that and a Kyokushin school. Maybe later I can do both. What do you guys think? I just want it to be full force and effective.

    I started Judo back in January...switched over from Traditional JJ at the same place, and absolutely love it. Its a great workout and your get to spar (randori). I'm hoping to enter some tournaments this fall....as soon as I get out of the open weight division.

    Usually they don't let the white belts do randori for a couple of weeks but since i came from JJ they let me do it the first night. I was freaking dying from a cardio perspective. its tough having to pick yourself up off the mat all night long. Now I can get 5 or 6 matches in without taking a break.

    Best of luck and remember to stay loose.

    Yeah, the dude's probably just some loser on house arrest.

    QUIT MAKING HORRIBLE POSTS AROUND HERE. You are not funny. Starting a thread where you beg the board for forgiveness makes you look 10x more pathetic too.

I was planning on going tonight, but Weds I pinched a nerve in my upper back something wicked. So bad I took maybe the 20th Advil in my life. Ugh. So call it this Monday. But I'm temped to go in tonight just to pay and sign up, without hitting the class.

    How are the mats there? My place is in the process of getting new ones, which means the current ones are pretty old. Falling isnt that bad but the mats spread apart and I'm constantly catching my toes. This sport is awful on your feet. Best of luck and do your best not to get caught in randori with an ippon seo nagi from a black belt... Getting thrown with that one sucks.

    Mats are VERY nice. Blue rubberized canvas covered foam that velcro's together hard, with canvas covering over it all. Since I show my n00bness in botched landings all the time, it's jarring as hell, but non-painful.

    I participated in my first randori on Friday night, my second class. I watched a bit, then asked someone about it. They said 'go for a black belt, or watch and see who the small people pick, because that person will be a bit kinder'. I decided to test that theory, and it was oh-so-true. The two black belts were very gentle when thEy threw me, the white belts, um, no. Ow.

    It's pretty physically challenging. Fridays class tore me up. I haven't done any fighting for around 10 years, when I got my ass kicked for 3 months in Israel. I recover a lot slower now, dammit.

    lol..yeah, stay away from white belts. I was lucky and paired up with a guy who came over from JJ so we both new a bunch of throws; the other guys will throw you at all sorts of weird angles.

    A little trick that helped me, especially against the black belts...use left handed throws. Most white belts will only do right handed so they guard against them. But if you catch them with one, be ready for the consequences!

    At this point, nothing will help me, left, right, it doesn't matter. THey so completely dominate me, lol. I did a few successful sweeps tonight, got the timing straight, but mostly I'm relying on strength, and I get tired, then they play with me.

    I'm so beat, two hours of that is tough! I love it!

    Neither are MMA, though judo can be used in MMA. Judo is derived from juijitsu. about 120 years ago, some guy decided to really examine what was being taught in jiujitsu, throw out what was ineffective, and adapt it to a western training style, meaning they train full force and full contact, but in a safe way that you could survive more than one class. He taught his students this way, than took them to a big jiujitsu competition, where they kicked jiujitsus ass all over the place. This became judo.

    Or something like that. Jiujitsu has some more brutal techniques, strikes, and other good stuff, but judokas train hard and realistically, ie with a resisting opponent.

    Jujitsu is all about randori, full force sparring.
    Judo modified jujitsu to make a sport out of it and eliminate the nasty brutal submissions. I think the only submissions you are allowed in judo are armbars, am I correct?

    So we pretty much do all the throws that judo has, all the submissions they don't do, and the striking, which is what karate was originally derived from, only we do it in a more practical way keeping the hands up guarding your face.

    Training at an mma specific place you would probably get better stand up striking, ground and pound, and conditioning, but jujitsu's submissions are better.

    You can only do arm locks and chokes. You also cannot extend the spine to get the choke in.

    I switched from JJ to Judo because of a scheduling conflict and your right, we do a lot of "judo" throws as well as all the submissions. The nice thing about Judo, at least in my part of the country, is that there are tournaments almost every weekend. Once I get out of the open weight division and into the heavy weight (220 max) then I'll start fighting.

    Poison,
    That 'some guy" comment about the inventor of Judo would have gotten you thrown one by one by all the black belts at our club. Jigoro Kano...remember that name just in case your instructors feel the same way

    zbtboy, lol, you are right, I'd have been thrown into a wall for that comment! I just couldn't remember his name. I also LOVE the fact that there are frequent judo competitions, and my dojo really wants students to compete.

    As for bjj>judo...it depends on your needs. Both are very good, with bjj having taken one aspect of judo to its peak of effectiveness. However, that focus limits its uses. I'd take judo over bjj in a street fight any day, and twice on Sundays. I'm a bodyguard, and the last thing I need is to go to the ground while my client is attacked, runs away in fear and I lose him, or otherwise things go to ****. I need the standup effectiveness.

    I'm not sure I understand... how exactly do you subdue the attacker? By continuing to throw them?

    WHat if a wrestler shoots and takes you down?

    You ever been throw with malice, on pavement? You won't get up too fast, and that's without finishing you off with another technique/arm break/kick to the head.

    Judoka train on the ground, too. Where do you think a bjj came from? A wrestler shoots, there's an answer in judo. I'm not saying its the end all, I just find it more well rounded and fitting my needs better than BJJ.
