    Inactivity time-out

    What is the amount of time set as the inactivity time-out for the forum? Sometimes it seems as though I'll step away long enough to make and eat a sandwich, and when I come back, I have to log back in.

    Weinstein to remake Kurosawa's "The Seven Samurai"

    Yes, I know. Akira Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai is a perfect film and has been remade and adapted many times already. But I will be very interested to see this version. Although, a VERY high bar is set when you take on a film of this magnitude...

    Don't Talk To Strangers?

    Rhetorical questions..... How many people tell their children "don't talk to strangers?" Why is this done? A poll of elementary school children will almost always reveal that the majority of the children have been told "Don't talk to strangers" by their parents. Why does this happen? Every...

    Too many Judo throws?

    In another thread we've been discussing the differences between two particular Judo throws. Which, at the core, seem to be very minor to me. This got me thinking... Are there too many throws in Judo? It seems that if there is any slight difference in tori's body position, or entrance, or...

    Seasonal Training

    Sorry if this has been discussed in other threads. I just didn't feel like browsing 12 pages of SD posts to search for it. I am wondering who alters their Self-Defense training to change with the seasons. With winter upon us, we (and any would-be assailant) make many changes that may go...
