    Getting slammed....yikes

    I think you're right. I also think it can give BJJ players a false sense of security. This is why crosstraining in Judo/Wrestling with takedowns is imperative. In a street altercation, if you're going up someone very strong....like some stocky bull type of guy that lifts weights, you better be...

    The case for Judo as a self-defense system...

    I think I've posted this before but does taking down someone have to be so complicated? Judo is a beautiful art, but if one got reasonably good a just a handful of takedowns, I think that is sufficient to get 90% of people on the ground. Even a football tackle would work lol.

    The case for Judo as a self-defense system...

    After 2 years of searching I finally found a school that teaches Judo & BJJ (Osagame in Philly). It's rare you see that.

    The case for Judo as a self-defense system...

    Classes OSAGAME "n our Free-Style Judo class, students will learn techniques that may no longer be legal in a modern, standard IJF Judo competition. Freestyle Judo is more similar to older versions of Judo than modern IJF rules. The main differences are that leg grabs are allowed, and...

    The case for Judo as a self-defense system...

    I think the traits it builds up are important. It toughens you up, gets you in shape, improves your balance, and makes you hard to take down, act under pressure, etc. All good things to have.

    The case for Judo as a self-defense system...

    I really enjoy Judo for those reasons. It's a great workout . BJJ would be second, but it's slower paced and very technical to me. As you mentioned, with striking you're never going 100% and even at 50%, that's too much. I've got hit the head a few times. It's not good for the brain. The...

    I normally don't like posting these types of things, but sometimes it's fun LOL. I thought this guy made a good case for Judo over BJJ. Both are great and both emphasize different things. "As far as BJJ vs. Judo i'll have to side with judo from my experiences, but i am not saying bjj is...

    No - gi Judo

    I often wonder if just knowing a single/double leg TD is all you really need for a self defense standpoint. From there you need the ground game.

    No - gi Judo

    My BJJ instructor asked me before I started doing privates whether I wanted to do gi or no gi and I chose no gi. My thinking was it's just more realistic to learn without a gi rather than rely on the gi for certain things.

    No - gi Judo

    Good information, thanks. I've been taking private BJJ lessons due to time constraints. $100 an hour isn't cheap but I've been getting a lot of out of it. I talked to the Judo instructor I took lessons from a few months ago and he does privates for $40 and No-gi. I'm going to give that a...

    What martial art is best for a beginner, petite female working in a risky industry?

    "Approaching a use of force encounter as a LEO using competition BJJ or Judo tactics would obviously be a bad idea. The trick is to realize that the physical skills of being able to control someone without being controlled are still very useful. You just have to adapt those skills to a different...

    If BJJ is so effective, why isn't everybody doing it?

    I think BJJ popularity is at an all-time, due to the Gracies, UFC and the effectiveness of the art. I feel tradtional arts are fading, and MMA is replacing them. If you're in it for self defense or want to learn how to fight, you need to know how to strike, and how to grapple. It's as...

    BJJ - The gentle art

    That's interesting I would not have thought that. But then again, we don't go hard when training MT so that's probably why. In BJJ you can go 100%.

    I am worried my inconsistency with styles is hurting my potential

    BJJ - The gentle art

    Obviously anytime you're moving your body, whether it's walking or doing a martial art, you run the risk of injury. My BJJ instructor who also teaches real Muay Thai at his school sort of pushes Muay Thai on everyone. Not in a bad way, but I get the feeling he thinks it's a better overall art...

    "Every cop should learn BJj" Do you agree?

    Once on the force, it's easy to fall out of shape. Sitting in a car all day, lack of motivation etc. It can happen to all of us. That's a good point. Maybe a possible solution to some of the deficiencies in DT would be to create a condensed DT system based on MMA. A good 6 month dose of...
