Why I want to study martial arts:
- self defense
- weapons training
- acupressure points
What i'm looking for in martial arts:
- fluidity of movement
- more attacking then defense, but have defense as well
- both striking and kicking
- not so much as a sport
- not so much wrestling
- not so much your own strength rather using your opponents strength
thanks again for all your helpful info:asian:
@ chris parker: it actually looks really good, thanks for the link. I was wondering however if they do the environmental aspects of it such as swimming etc?
You will like this clip especially Gypsy I think, and the two below of Alex Kostic
thankyou for all your advice
@Blindside: i live in Brisbane, Australia on the southside if that helps and I was also worried a bit about how i am meant to choose a good instructor since i have no experience in this. any advice?
And Brian, why is that exactly? I'm not sure myself:
the no belts, no ranking thing is realistically simply the way Vladimir and Mikhael set up the system. I feel that it is in no small part a way to differentiate it from the more "Traditional" systems out there,
Judo is not the answer to every question.
You didn't answer her question. As a matter of fact whenever anyone asks for any suggestions and gives specific parameters of what they are looking for, you always say "Judo" whether or not it meets any of their parameters. If everyone else can step out of their personal interests in order to try and make constructive suggestions based on the specific interests of the OP, I have a hard time understanding why you insist on just evangelizing Judo in any and all situations. Do you really think this is helping?Hello, You are right..it is NOT the answer to every question...."What's for dinner"? ...JUDO!
Judo does not use weapons (just defend against them)...
Suggestions was ask? .....just sharing my thoughts.....
Aloha, ...Judo...more than you think...!!!
