    The rules are different enough that it is certainly important to learn what the differences are. But not so different that you feel like you are doing something completely alien.

    Beginners going too hard too soon is a common cause of injuries. Go steady for a few sessions till you get a feel for stuff. Honestly I dont think the inury risk is much different to BJJ if you train...

    Seriously I dont understand people that like BJJ but are not interested in doing Judo, it just does not make sense. Some people in BJJ class look at you like you just asked them to chew on raw...

    edit: Hmm think I might be in one of those moods where I want to say contraversial stuff, so I can get into an argument on the internet and thus avoid doing any actual work today :-/ must resist

    Dont know about the veracity of the story, but do think that in general the less belts the better.

    Thinking about it some more, much of the Judo community has a bit of a rugby player type attitude to the sport. Some clubs honestly we spent more time drinking than actually training. This is clearly...

    Hmm gotta partly disagree with you. Might be true of the lager elite clubs. But the Judokan in London was like my second home before it closed. Still sad about that. And as a student both in the...

    Nope. Even if getting my arse kicked I would not go 100 percent. If they specifically asked me to I might go to 95 percent maybe. Maybe I am old fashioned. Or just old.
