I saw a guy hit himself in his gonads with a kendo stick. He walked out bent leaning on it like on a walking stick and covering his face.

  • Of course, a situation like that does tempt amateurs but you know they can't stay the course like a professional

I'm afraid to train with big people. 160 kg is exactly 3 times me. If he fell on me, he'd kill me. Is such a monster able to do push-ups? Not to mention burpies? Don't they test such things on belt exams in judo?

If the judoka is black belt few injuries occur. And we don't go out to do each other damage. 3rd, maybe 4th gear. Rule #1 take good care of your partner. It is bad manners to play the bully.
At 160 kg there are health issues (he was 220 kg in the beginning!!!!!)  Many of my mates are almost as old as me and they are starting to get worn knees and etc. I still feel elbow injury from 1980..
Not getting any younger.

tennis? too aggressive and competitive. And I would need one of those ball boys and girls to run after the ball for me.

I'm excluded from rule #1 to people, in all sports. That's why I keep my guard high :-)

BTW, the guy about whom I complained that he threw me against the rule #1 and style (I felt piercing pain which didn't even let me walk fast in my backbone and joints for over a month!) stopped appearing. Maybe he switched to yoga. The last time the yogis entered the studio before we managed to clean it. We tried to tell them, but they literally treated us like the air. I think one girl looked at me when I shouted "Fire!".

This book by journalist Mark Law discusses personality traits on and off the mat. No correlation. He has examples of dare-devil theology students, 2nd hand car salesmen, politicians and night club bouncers and Dell TV characters. Can't take book by the cover I suppose.
On the mat (esp newaza) no give and take with Mr. Law. Image

Thanks, I won't read it.

You, guys, here and out of here have been very #1. At least that's how I'm going to keep you in my memories :-)

Doing MMA twice a week for the next 5 weeks to keep in shape. See how it goes.
It makes a good change from croquet (BTW I'm not allowed to play golf; I'm married).

You played croquet? And now switching to MMA?? What about your judo?

I've been doing kettle bells last week and hit myself painfully with an 8kg weight :-(

On summer recess at the moment. No judo clubs here, just MMA and BJJ. Still, judo is the toughest sport of them all.

I play croquet here
