Old school Judo Ne Waza!

I really enjoy watching these old videos of the Judo masters from the bygone days; just shows you that the moves we practice today, have been around for generations.  See if any of these moves look familiar :)


Ne Waza demonstration by Chu Kawakami, 9th Dan, one of Jigoro Kano's original students...If Judo hadn't become an Olympic sport and hadn't gone through massive rule changes so that it would have a better appeal to the mass market, would we even have Brazilian Jiu Jitsu today?! It's incredible how rule changes in one martial art gave prominence to its cousin...

Ice hockey Jiu Jitsu!

Great video from website, where an ice hockey player pulls guard in a mass brawl on the ice. 


When in doubt, get the Gaffer tape out!

Monday night at training, I split an old scar and split some new skin as  an added bonus; the scar is under my right big toe and is in the worst spot available, as the healing takes a long time to occur, as the scar keeps re splitting each time I get on the mats.

My usual saviour is sports tape and lo and behold, I'd run out of tape on Monday!

So, what is one to do when faced with a scar splitting incident?

Simple answer - get the Gaffer tape out!

As you can see from the photo, the area was duly covered, teaching resumed on Wednesday evening and all was well again in the world.

Don't let a pesky split scar keep you off the mats; when the chips are down, use your head and think outside the box.

Gaffer tape is your friend.
