After a serious injury/long healing time I finally got started with judo last night. It was cool I suppose and to think I wouldn't be feeling it today would be stupid. That said, I can't say I enjoyed being thrown around like a ragdoll all night. Does this get easier? I'm thinking the other noob doing the throwing didn't know what he was doing and I didn't know too much about how to fall properly either. Is the idea that this falling on your side, your back, being thrown over another mans shoulder for two hours is supposed to be fun? Does it get fun at any point? The physical exhaustion I can deal with, the stiffness and whatnot the day after I know goes away and its not worth complaining about but the constant abuse I dunno. Despite getting owned I enjoyed the grappling though, the little I did of it. I've already looked at my options, see if I can't find something with less throws, something like greco-roman wrestling or even ju jitsu. I even found a MMA club which on mondays only do grappling. Definitely going to check that out. What do you guys say? I'm I just being a pansy, everybody gets beat up the first two months of judo and I better just stick with it cause it does get better?
