When I realise how to join the society, I will!

I do taekwondo, have only been doing it for roughly 3 months now but it's going strong.

I've noticed a lot of people take martial arts just for self defence and I think this is where so many go wrong.

There is much more to it.

Anywho, i'm only 9th Kup so very much a minor at the moment but I received highest marks last grading so I'm eager to move up the ranks quickly.

Hey Folks, I study Wado Ryu with a club up in Cumbria and I love it. I also do Tai Chi and have done Aikido (though I'm on layoff from that because of a shoulder injury).

Shoulder injuries suck dont they .. I had one straight after my final year so I have missed about a year's worth of sessions and need to get the motivation to return

Aye, they do. It's stopped me climbing too which is a collossal pain in the ass! Fortunately, with karate and tai chi I can take it easy...with aikido I get thrown around like a ragdoll and it really doesn't do it any favours. Haha.

Judo is a development, or sub-form, of the generic term "jujutsu" which refers to a wide variety of grappling martial arts.

I injured my shoulder as well haven't been in three months. Feels like a bloody year though sinces I've been. Tried to do a reverse backkick and strained my muscle yesterday :rolleyes: I was an assistant instructor too, plus missed two competitions :mad:

Anyway got my physio on thursday so I can go for a couple of lessons before I go travelling for 5 months... Hopefully when I'm at uni I'll get to do it there.

Anyone carry on their sport while at Uni? I would like to help run it as I'm a qualified instructor.

Sorry to hear that Sephirona. Sounds a bit drastic. What did the sensei (sorry I don't know the 'official' term for judo instructors) say about the situation.

My injury was from deep diving (in the sea :rolleyes: ) and my arm getting twisted and then a dog attacking me and pulling it out of it's socket and then some muscle tissue was ripped or something. So, to pick up a pint of water hurt..

I'm not a Judoka per se, However it may be worth looking at the variety of other grappling arts that do not use the gi.

The gi is largely to build a technical base in technique and to improve grip strength, an often overlooked factor.

It's quite a subjective question really, depends how one trains Judo.

Hey guys; new here!

Name's Matt, got a orange belt in taekwondo, and about to go to Ju Jitsu classes. I'm really good at self-defence tecniques, and have used them in a few fights I've been in (I live in quite a rough town).

Looking forwards to chating about it all...

If you're interested in griping, or throwing techniques, you might find self-defence techniques easier to apply, and in some ways more useful.

I could try to teach you some, but there are videos around that are better at it.

You got any links of any decent videos ?
