did you watch craig on joe rogan? he said he was self taught by reading books and watching videos, didn't even have a black belt over him, and only got formal instruction from lachlan for 2 years before going over to john
know what the take away is? you're better off teaching yourself jiujitsu and just rolling with your friends than you are going to most of these boomer retards running "academies"

it's a shame how many people want to become high level athletes and the main thing holding them back is their coach being absolutely ass at teaching them
I'm sorry you were had by a McDojo but not everywhere is like that. The teaching system in judo at every school I've visited (and the two BJJ schools I've visited, for that matter) combines these concepts. If Brazilians and their groupies are too retarded to figure that out I would think that says more about them than it does the validity of a best-of-both-worlds methodology as maintained in the judo pedagogical system.
>self taught by reading books and watching videos
Who wrote the books and made the videos? They sound like they'be be good coaches to have on hand.
The people that wrote books and made videos during that time were the free thinkers of the era blazing their own path
The Brazilian way doesn't work
And the japanese way might be even worse
You must wash the rice for 3 years before we let you make the sushi
You must practice the kata for 5 years before we let you do kumite

The only thing saving judo is there's a competitive sport with a lot of money in it. The ones at the top of the sport sure as shit aren't repping the gokyo. They're doing calisthenics to increase their action capacity and playing.
Learning moves is bullshit, if you want to be good at rhe sport then just play the game. And judo is wise enough to let that be a path to black belt. Fuck the knowledge, if you throw people well enough you get one, simple as
>And the japanese way might be even worse
>You must wash the rice for 3 years before we let you make the sushi
>You must practice the kata for 5 years before we let you do kumite
That's not even close to how it works in judo.
>The ones at the top of the sport sure as shit aren't repping the gokyo
Go watch some Olympic level judo practices. They all drill uchikomi and they all do randori. Practicing technique helps reinforce the relevant neural pathways and makes you better at executing it during play. You see this kind of training at all levels of sport.
The main function of uchikomi in that room is physical conditioning, they're doing it with high speed and intensity so their turns and steps are explosive and powerful

What they don't have is some jackass standing in the middle of the room listening to himself talk "Ok so you're going to grab the bottom of the tricep and as I pull I'll take a step to the left causing him to take a step forward and then...."
Then everyone claps like trained seals and goes back and forth comploantly 3 times each
That's how nearly every bjj room in the world looks, and if you'll find the rooms that actually produce good athletes don't train like that

Every single one of them will say
here's your task:
Here's an example of how that might look:
Go do it live

And the coach will attentively help people troubleshoot any problems they run into

I'm a switch-hitting counterpuncher. My power isn't that great but I body punch a lot and string good combos. I use pressure and fight at angles. I don't like being cornered and had to develop better defense.

Let's rectify that.

Best dive sites? Hairy or funny stories?

And the obvious question, what's better? PADI or SDI?

Newbie here, is it okay to use free diving wetsuits for open water diving? Looking at truedive and bestdive's products at the moment
Online content done, first dive soon.
First dive done, it was a bit of a disaster, we got too cold while doing the exercises and started shaking. GF was at her limit during the entrance to the water due to a lack of control and unbalanced gear, also, when removing the mask underwater. She also got motion sickness at the end on the surface and ended up puking at the car. My mustache was inconvenient for the seal of the mask, I got wax plugs in both ears.
Overall, it has been the most uncomfortable dive I have done by far.
Next one soon, if I can remove the ear wax and my GF doesn't kill me first.
Depends on where you are. There's a few in Santa Monica and San Diego has it's own Wreck Alley.

Just skate and have fun. You're never too old or fat to skate. Skateboarding is 90% mind 10% body.

I always was saying that despite common myths jitsres have great single and double leg takedowns and judo and sambo guys overestimate their abilities to le "strike people with earth". I felt this myself when I did BJJ and sparred with judokas.
And finally some russian jitsers went to sambo competitions without any preparation and here is results
Jitsers are absolute fucking beasts when it comes to single leg takedowns and samboists rarely can do a decent throw, more often their throws look like some shitty roll overs.

You can also see photoes from official site here and literally no one uses these belts

I googled more. There were some news that FIAS PLANNING to make belt system and they need to invent normatives in the future but covid prevents them from doing this. There was no any official papers on belt system. The Chairman of the Belarusian Sambo Federation said in an interview in 2020, “Due to the unfavorable epidemiological situation, we have not yet met and talked about the procedure for assigning belts,” since then there has been no news. There is no any mentioning of belt system in regulation paper
Bulgarian judoka and sambist Ivaylo Ivanov on reddit wrote that top 10 ranked Sambo countries refuse even to discuss belt system, and it was a year ago.
It's on a federation by federation basis. They're starting to roll them out in US Sambo.
ADCC is what you're describing especially during y2k and even then other than couple catch guys here and there it was all jiu jitsu guys running the show

A match beetween someone trained In BJJ, judo, Wrestling,... vs some nigga in plate armor without weapons.

I wouldn't call the 17th century modern
Why would you lie? Those pummel strikes had no structure behind them and even then were hitting the mask.
It was never as clean as it is now though, most modern joint lock submissions are from late 1800s and on. In wrestling it was mainly just trying to pull something until it breaks, there was no technique to submissions. Even the toe hold which was probably one of the more common 1800s wrestling submissions was just pulling the foot in one direction when the opponent was turtled up. The armbar as we know it was only introduced to America around 1905 or something like that. So while submissions were around for thousands of years, they really weren't around to be used on battlefields, especially in Europe where there was superior weaponry and armor, they would mainly use a takedown to use their weapon to kill someone on the ground if they were armored, if they were unarmored then it doesn't even get to a grapple.

Hey guys,

Started doing judo a couple of months ago, I know the throws from doing traditional ju jitsu but I'm struggling with the timing and kuzushi. How do I practice that? In particular kuzushi. Thanks

No even the higher belts don’t do randori
Is there a colored-belts-only class where they might do randori or is it literally zero randori ever for anyone? The latter would be extremely bizarre. I'd ask the instructor about the lack of randori (and presumably shiai) just to make sure it's not some kind of misunderstanding because those are integral parts of the judo educational system and it would be very, very weird to teach judo without them.
Its a hobbyist class (hard to translate into English). They are mostly middle aged and it seems it’s more a social meeting with some Sport aspects. 1/3 of the training is playing soccer…

I would love to learn judo… but not on this way. So back to kickboxing for me.

I've been doing BJJ for like 18 months as well but the judo rule set is annoying as fuck, like the rule about not standing up during newaza. For example I stood up originally to pass someones guard and got told to get down again, its probably making my technique better in the long run but it was really difficult in the beginning because I'm used to standing when passing guard. I've started to implement some judo in to my BJJ, so its a nice cross over.
Find a buddy and train together.
Do judo and BJJ, learn off YouTube. Randori, sparring and diet accountability etc. No homo.

wanna start caveing. what shoude i know and do. and what are the donts and dos? please tell me and how to find spots
Well first, you'll need a cave. Underground is usually the place to look. Some cunt in south Oregon reckons he found a sky cave once, but I don't believe him.

No joke for dealing with a knife,
boxing and wrestling.
if you have good defense you will be fine.
Also get a stab vest to wear under your clothes if you go out.
I don’t have the money or power to get a martial arts loicence so I couldn’t tell you
>gets stabbed in the neck, bleeds out and dies in 15 seconds
Bartitsu is a hybrid martial art that developed in England.
Actually somewhat sensible answer. There's that fag who's been dressing up in regency era clothes all his life, maybe take a page out of his book.

*shitty boomer guitar solo*
