Judo works and it has the potential to be deadly effective. The fighter that is using it is the determining factor.
With good training and effort you can become an excellent fighter. Prepare yourself to take some lumps, and give some lumps in matches. That is the best way to test your skill.
There is a place for real force, but that is a small area of life, most martial arts are defensive and avoid killing and maiming. Dueling has no place in civilized areas, but being able to put down an attacker, that does have a place.
That place where force is needed is up to the man involved...
People routinely kill themselves while they are under severe stress. You are blind to reality, because there is an intrinsic possibility of suicide.
She gave up her dream and she may try again in the next Olympic, but she is done with this one.
Maybe she will be fine, but to be aghast that I...
What good is that, if you end up committing suicide? People have done it before. Fifty or one hundred million dollars, will buy you a fabulous house and luxury, but it wont give you peace.

Knife attacks are fearful things, and someone can drop dead, right on the spot. I guess everyone knows that by using common sense.
That is something that any knife fighter needs to answer, which is, what will I do to save myself?
I mentioned in another post, that killing is easy; but the...
It sounds like she has an anxiety disorder, because she has a lot piled onto her. That will make a mess out of anyone, when the people around you demand that you be flawless. There are winners and losers of events, but there aren’t any flawless people.
I didn't go to prison after I was charged with murder; and that was hard, since it took a jury trial, and an acquittal.
After my acqittal, two of his moron buddies, challenged me to a knife fight. It was dark and they couldn’t see my .45 Auto, that I had in my pocket.
Its a good thing that...
You already know how to kill someone, everyone with any sense knows how to kill.
1: You can cut their throat.
2: You can blow their brains out.
3: You can bash their brains out.
4: You can run over them with a vehicle.
What you are looking for is a preferred method of self-defense, that can be...
Can you find some schools that will let you sit in and observe, and study some of the style? A few sit downs should tell you if it’s to your liking. There is no hard and fast rule on what is best for a man. That is going to be pretty subjective.
In the end, you have to make that call, now me...
Change schools or simply train on your own, if you can’t find a better classroom, with honest instructors. Your sitrep smells of rotten fish, so go to a better fishing ground.
You are free to do what you want, maybe switch out your current fighting style, for something that suits you better.
I was charged with first degree murder, and I stood trial.
I was acquitted, so my advice is to stand trial, and be done with it.
I surrendered to a patrolman; there was blood clear up to my wrist, because I nicked the guys carotid. He attacked me and I defended with a knife.
