Today in class my instructor had us going over Judo throws, and for the life of me I just could not get them down but luckily the upper cllassmen I was paired with was more than willing to keep demonstrating these throws on me. Long story short I have a whole new respect for Judo, my lowerback and my liver is killing me !!
 
too little too late now, I saw so much danger from gettign hit those on the street, like if you try to break your fall with your arm or something like that you could get hurt pretty bad
 
Learn to break fall, it takes the smack out of the throw.
 
Just curious, what throws were you going over?
 
Oh wow i wouldn't want to disrespect the art by mispelling the throws, plus I train BJJ so he really didn't go too in depth so far as the names went he just showed them to us and had us practice them I want to say one was osoto gari but it involved stepping to the side and putting your instep across the lower legs of your opponenent and making a steering wheel type motion. I know that is a lame explanation but I was getting thrown most of the time so I didn't get a chance to really mimick the technique. I will ask the next time I am in class.
 
make sure you learn to fall correctly (ask your instructor to show you how to break fall) it will make practice way less painful
 
I appreciate the advice, after after about the fourth time it began to feel like I had just been hit in the liver with a haymaker or something. It was the first time since I started training that I had to sit out for a little while. I felt pretty weak but I had to remember to leave ego and abravado at the door.
Thanks again for the advice.

Hey man, hang in there!
I feel the same way sometimes and I've been training judo for a while now. You will adjust and it'll be a lot easier.

Try this: breath out forcefully when you hit the mat. You don't have to kiai, but it might help to go to that extreme. In judo classes you'll hear people kiai-ing all the time when they're being slammed into the mat. If you hold your breath it'll hurt. Good luck, don't give up.
 
Oh yea from my limited experience with judo, I found it harder to grasp compared to BJJ.

One guy here stated that judo is just as deep as BJJ is, but in different aspects of the ground game. I totally agree.

I also find that in judo you do experience way more pain than in BJJ. Falling on your head (it happens), getting winded when you land, etc, etc, these are generally not things you experience in BJJ.
 
Glad to see Judo finally getting some of the respect it deserves!
 
In japan Judoka usually say that the colored Obi (Belt) show how ur able in Ukemi (Because u star to study real judo at BB, in Japan the colour of belt are only white-brown-black- red/white - red)

My Sensei usually said that even a lot of Black Belt don't know ukemi very well. There are Entire Stages based on a good practice of Fall.

If u are good in Ukemi u probably can train much more and for a long time without injures, if u aren't probably ur judo career will finish soon.
 
oh wow i studied Tang soo do for three years and after training in bjj for the past 3 months and seeing the power of Judo I feel like I wasted three years of valuable training. I would be leaps and bounds ahead of where I am it now if i hadn't wasted time with tang soo do. But I learned something so i guess the time wasn't totally wasted. I appreciate the advice the Judoka are giving I will definitlyt try it out next time (hopefully I don't get thrown).
 
Just wait til you get hit with a good uchi-mata.. it still hurts and i know how to fall :(
 
Judo - The gentle art

My ass. I take a pounding when doing Judo.
 
Judo is a lot sorer in your first year. When I started I struggled to do it twice a week. Eventually you learn how to take a fall. Beginners don't realise how important ukemi really is.
