Evening All You Awesome Magnificent Intelligent Mofos and Unbalanced Misfits
Sunday.. Day 1 of #judo went better than expected. Let me extrapolate some details for those of you who are not of the initiated. Yes that was sarcasm, but not really.
I was extremely nervous.. it's been many years off the mat and out of the "active/physical" #martialarts community. As a quick reminder, this mature guy has about 15 years of experience primary art being #japanesejiujitsu . I've been out the game for at least 6 years.
The two are similar but very different at the same time. There is a huge disconnect that warrants folks from Japanese Juijitsu side to go hands on with Judo. Depending on your skill level and background, It could be a very uncomfortable journey. DO IT ANYWAY
Ok ok. CT, How the hell are you saying this from a single day of exposure? Very simple canepa head.. Japanese Jiujitsu is the parent art of both Judo and Aikido... Now, I'm not saying that in a negative way but from research - factual. And for the #bjj folks I can now understand why this makes your interpretation of jiujitsu effective and efficient.
The concepts of entry/exiting, the grip setup/fighting, the explosiveness & critical technique nuances of timing with another training partner. I wish I had started sooner.
The class size was mixed level of experience , very welcoming. The Head instructor asked.. Any Questions?? No one said a word but me... That was fun -- I said twice.. what a goof ball..lol smdh.. You already know some folks may have taken that the wrong way.. so I'll be ready for someone to take my head of my body next week.
