So my academy has a fantastic jiu-jitsu program but the judo club there is limping along. We only have judo two nights out of the week and it is a good night if there are 4-5 people there, including the instructor. I started out doing BJJ and still do, but I love judo. It helps your stand up game tremendously and though I am at best an orange belt in judo (I would test and get promoted, but like I said, things are pretty lax because of the low turn outs) I regularly toss BJJ purple belts around whenever we sucker them into doing a little randori pretty effortlessly. They always thank me afterwards and are surprised that I didn't hurt them. I think everyone has these negative stereotypes about judo just wrecking your body. Sure, it does, but that is competition judo. 99% of the judo guys in my club are 1st and 2nd degree black belts, are a little older, and are done with competition judo. It makes me sad because these guys have a tremendous amount of knowledge to share but no one comes to judo class. I worry that eventually the head instructors will just say screw it and cancel the whole program. The few judo guys we have cross train in BJJ, but the vast majority of the BJJ guys (except me) never go to judo. WTF?
