Hehe, Judo, probably the funnest game there is.
Have you trained before? It takes a while to get your 'judo armor' so the throws don't hurt as much. Even with brake falling, judo throws still hurt a lot, but after a few months your body will toughen up to it.
Are you considering doing this long term or casually?
The first thing you should work on if you are new to judo is Kazushi (breaking the balance) Judo is based on balance, unlike wrestling which is more based on leverage (although there is a lot of crossover in technique).
Your best bet is to learn a foward throw (when you are pushing them foward) like Osoto Gari. And a back throw when you are being pushed back (tomoe nage). and then a throw when you are moving side ways, i like uchi mata, but don't worry about that till your at least blue/brown belt.
Work on some main throws, and then some throws that lead to setting up those throws. Remember judo is a dance, a brutal dance. You capatilize when they react to what you do.
Whoa next time Im in brisbane Im challenging you to a fight Kronex.
The bjj instructor was out sick so the Judo instructor taught the class. It was a lot of fun , but really did freak me out how easily some of the higher ranked judo guys(that also did BJJ) took me down in fairly painful manors.
I would love to keep doing it when I move to Memphis, the work out was brutal.
The only take downs I really know are wrestling take downs. Turns out there is a throw(that hurts like a mother fucker) from when I shoot for a single. I thought I locked the single up and the next thing I know, he has my belt and I'm looking at my feet above my head
Also I never grapple in a gi so my fingers are all skinned and blistered up, I have girl hands
Lol i am like 65 kilo, and u are huge HW and strong. how about a bjj roll though? Judo is brutal if theres a size difference .
If you keep at judo, its an awesome weapon to add to your arsenal even for MMA. And will learn to hate wrestlers as the rivalry between the two disciplines is intense, as well as wrestlers arn't really used to the hip throws as much as judo players so you can sometimes catch em off guard with these moves.
Anyway good luck with it.
I bet that guy can take on E-Fed.
my god what power
Joey's the Chris Leben of The Real World; crazy KO power and an alcoholic to boot.
