That really isn't motivating to hear at all. What do you tell people to get them to do judo instead of or more often than BJJ? Or does that conversation not come up for you?
I think my senior coach told the two guys I train with the most that Judo would help them with the stand up part of BJJ and make them more comfortable falling. They only compete in BJJ right now though.
We have two BJJ guys in our judo club, one with both hip joint problems, another with both shoulder and back problems. All these injuries come from BJJ.
Judo feels much easier on my body, but there are still some small injuries time to time. It does hurt time to time, but it is not like getting stacked and then spending next two weeks in pain.
I tend to go to turtle rather than get stacked playing guard, and If the person is much bigger than me I don't use full guard at all.
I also found that if I don't want to be the one on bottom I just have to stand up and my partner will immediately play a sitting open guard.
Problem is I don't get a chance to pass guard from a standing position like this when I compete, so sometimes I put myself in the persons closed guard just to get that extra practice.
The French Judo association are refusing to implement the new IFJ rules for their domestic competitions!
The new rules "do not match the image of the judo of our federation" !!!
Good. They need to quit changing the rules every damn year. Getting rid of awasete was stupid, but not as stupid as making two yukos win the damn match, or trying to disincentivize groundwork. Maybe Judo would be more popular if the IJF climbed out of its own ass.
A nice heavyweight sode tsuriomi goshi! Gurman Tushishvili is a beast:
A cool side-sumi gaeshi from Gviniashvili:
I am not sure what happened here, nor this call:
It looked like Tushishvili tried some sort of sankaku, but his knee seemed to have hit the Kageura on the ear and complained about it. Pretty bs imo, it is judo. In grappling arts, these things happen.

and her signature sankaku (almost made a big mistake when the uke performed a drop seoi nage):
