I fully agree, but, it is not that common to see a judoka to get hauled of the training tatami, the worst i saw were 2 people with broken bones at at tournament. there is always a chance for injury, but it is usually controled as much as possible. it's just if people go around listing there nasty injuries, people are gonna get scared, and we don't want them scared....well, maybe a little...Blooming Lotus said:let's face it, we're not playing barbie dolls here and if you play or train martial arts with any desire to improve at all, chances are at some stage, you're going to injured and your constitution and pain threshold will be tested ........... don't know any master or student personally, who doesn't sincerely enjoy a good spanking.
It's when they're not friends and injuring you when you want to get concerned
Was this guy a judo practitioner? It doesn't sound like a Judo technique to me...Feisty Mouse said:I was thrown improperly by a very enthusiastic guy, by the back of my neck, a number of times in a row. It didn't make my neck feel too good. Between that and a non-judo sparring issue, I've got a messed-up neck now.

Yes, actually - he is a judo practictioner, among other arts... I think he was just all juiced up, and had the opportunity to throw a partner (me) who was new to judo, pretty light in comparison to him, but could take falls relatively well.auxprix said:Was this guy a judo practitioner?
