What is thing that you enjoy the most about judo & what is the worst thing you don't like & what do you all think could be improved to help out judo?
Hi,Ceicei said:Try not to focus just on the competition aspect. Even if your school happens to be competition oriented, there is plenty in judo that can be applicable to self defense when needed. I love the pins, chokes, locks, and throws.
That said, there are some things competition does teach: timing, balance, and the awareness of what your opponent intends to do so that you can circumvent his intention. These are very important skills that are transferable to the street. Now if judo is paired up with another style (ie. cross-training), then there is more in your arsenal of what can be done to defend yourself.
I'm curious. How many judokas practice atemi-waza and Kime-shiki?
What I love the most about Judo is simply, Randori! To me that is where all the benefit and character building take place. Dr. Jigoro Kano made Randori 80% of his Judo training repetoire (and other nations have emphasized Shiai (tournament as 80% of the Judo training).tkdguy1982 said:What is thing that you enjoy the most about judo & what is the worst thing you don't like & what do you all think could be improved to help out judo?
