Who seen this coming?
I expected Liparteliani to run through him, but had no idea that Judo existed in Ireland.. new world champions from Ireland lol:
A beautiful maki-komi:
Still spreading the good word, I see....
Best ippon from Ekaterinburg:
Here's a compilation of ippons from Dusseldorf. The final tai otoshi is pretty awesome.
The kind of shit I always try but never get.
Here are even more ippons:
I always like seeing harai goshi pop up in these.
Team USA's Adonis Dias got his first ever grand prix/slam medal today in 8 events at Istanbul's grand prix - he got a bronze.
Been trying to get in some good training again, but my lower back is buggered. Trying to throw, it feels just like hitting a wall halfway into the technique.
Ouch, just take it slow then. Your health is always more important. Maybe you’ll have to focus on foot sweeps more for now.
Thanks for your concern, my friend. I think I will take some classes off and ease back in with some foot sweeps.
I'm just so stubborn when I've just come back from another injury!
99.99% of people are never going to do Judo as long or as seriously as I have, so it's not really an issue.
It's entirely possible to do Judo sanely. It's just say, for example, RJ and I didn't choose that path.
I was asking more about the interplay between Judo and BJJ in your area/ club and what you do to recruit and retain people on the judo mat, motivate them to compete etc.
RJ's three-step guide to panty-moistening badassedness:
1. cross-train combat sports
2. embrace the pain
3. git gud
I agree, I think it is crazy how better your newaza will generally be if you know even basic white-belt bjj. You could even pin and tap a majority of brown/black belts. They have good newaza for judo, but when it comes to any passes/half guard passes/sweeps and so on, most people don't have an idea. Turning to your back up isn't a good strategy either. I like judo and some of their approaches to grappling, but some of them have no idea how to pass a guard when somebody can use easy retention.
rather than having glaring holes in any one facet of my game, i've decided to just be acceptably mediocre at everything.
except leg locks. fuck footsies. i just tap. my knees are all i have left.
Kayla Harrison will apparently have her MMA debut at PFL 2 on June 21.
I wonder what weight she'll be competing at and what sort of game plan she'll be using. I imagine at her size, on athleticism alone, she'll have trouble finding decent competition.
The European championships are happening now. It should be big fun. Russia, Germany, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Holland, France, Georgia etc. There are no big fish in small ponds here. We all have turns about winning and losing to each other.
Who is broadcasting the Euros? Available online?
