You have totally misunderstood what I've said so are making defensive and misleading posts. I don't believe in the least that repetition is bad, far from it. What I quoted was Neil Adams saying that in Japan Olympic Judo training is basically ALL repetition and very little fitness training, the ideal thing is that Judoka go to Japan for that technique training but do the fitness training at home as well as that repetition. For competitive Judo you need that fitness. Many countries by the way have Japanese Judo coaches. We are talking about Olympic Judo, nothing else, not the quality of products made in Japan or elsewhere, not Kendo only Olympic Judo.
