I'm disappointed they didn't include the knee set up.

Lyoto Weidman did not disappoint. What a brawl!

Ronda's mom is whatchacall a type A personality -- two master's degrees, a PhD, assorted business ventures, also a champion judoka in her own right. she would further Ronda's training in the gentle way by randomly attacking her without warning at various times during the day.

one fellow observes: "so she is like the sensei in the karate kid & rhonda is johnny lawrence okay got it"

Ronda once came to my friend's judo club back when she was just a judo star, and her mom came with her. He described her mom as "intense". Sounds pretty much right.

Rhonda's demolition act almost made me forget about this brutal KO from the Prelims. I wasn't even paying attention to the fight until I heard the smack from this punch. I had to watch the replay to figure out exactly what happened.

so Canelo Alvarez gets beat reasonably conclusively by a dude with no profile and therefore wins a split decision. no big shock there.

the fun part is de la Hoya talking about matching Canelo with Gennady Golovkin next. trying to think of some kind of clever metaphor to describe the potential reaction when Mexico's next great boxing hero gets his liver punched clean out of his body and it lands in the press row, leaving a gigantic oozing blood splat in between Dan Rafael's man-boobs, but it's very late at night and nothing is coming to me.

Like the opening to Rocky IV, only there's no Rocky to pick up the mantle after Drago murders Apollo?

So can this be the general MMA/Martial Arts discussion thread? I got the itch to start doing either Judo or BJJ again. I haven't done anything since grad school, which was 6 or 7 years ago. My wife and I just moved to a new town. There's two martial arts schools within 2 miles of me, one is BJJ school and the other advertises "healing arts" so that's a pretty easy decision for me to make. I called the BJJ school and the guy says the cost is 100 bucks a month, which is a far cry from the 35 dollars a semester I paid in grad school. Does 100 bucks a month sound outrageous to anyone else? Or is that the standard nowadays?

BJJ generally doesn't come cheap, no. Judo club memberships tend to be cheaper, especially at universities, because they're usually supported by one of the big judo orgs, whereas BJJ schools as a rule are businesses doing business. My boy who rolls at the Gracie Barra academy in Seattle I think pays like $200 a month?

I would see if you couldn't find a USJF/USJA-affiliated judo club somewhere in your vicinity. Might be an easier way to get acclimated again.

Yeah I'd actually prefer a Judo school. I always had more fun with it and was a bit better at Judo than BJJ though that probably has a bit more to do with the sparring partners in each class. Thanks to the mid-2000's MMA boom, BJJ was full of tough guys and MMA wannabees who had no problem making my 150 pound ass tap out in 15 seconds, but Judo seemed to attract more scrawny nerds and misfits(not as much as say, Aikido or Hapkido though. My school had tons of martial arts). There's a few Judo schools in the city, but they're a bit further than I want to drive. I'll hit up one of my old Judo instructors from college and see if he can recommend any schools that have escaped Google's grasp.

Default What the fuck happened to mma while i was at work?

BJJ is pricy as hell. $100 a month is the gold standard I've seen

BJJ and judo blend perfectly too one another, and would be one martial art if Brazilians weren't constitutionally prohibited from practicing takedowns

Maybe it's because I hung out mostly in the beginner classes, but we NEVER did stand up in BJJ. One time in class, when someone asked what to do from standing, the instructor just said "fall back and pull them into your guard" and that was it.

Yeah, I'm as interested in one sport as the other, but I'm less interested in meatheads and toughbros looking to show off, so I'll probably stick to judo.

Or, like, look into trying actual wrestling so that my knees have a better chance of making past age 33 intact

I would love to learn wrestling. And boxing. I feel like those would be two of the most practical things to learn.

Oh yeah, I forgot my knees are starting to bug me ever so slightly, either due to lifting too much weight or it's a side effect of approaching 30.

I would love to find a wrestling school, but I can't imagine there are too many schools out there willing to take on a 29 year old with no prior wrestling experience...

I've found that wrestling coaches are only too happy to spread their knowledge. Even to old farts like me.

Mark Schultz taught me how to do the front face lock, and that's the Tiger Woods of grappling we're talking about hrre

Definitely do your joints a favor and focus on Greco roman techniques because a lot of freestyle and folk style moves depend on a level of mobility you may not have anymore.

Like I asked an OSU wrestler about the john smith single leg and he told me in all his life he'd seen two people who could do it right.

Finally let me say that BJJ is usually a very chill art and if you find yourself pressured out of a gym do yourself a favor and leave. There's no need to put up w that shit

Thanks for the advice guys. I wasn't really able to find a close Judo school, so I'll give that BJJ place a shot once we get moved in, especially since it's very close and (comparatively) cheap. BJJ may be a bit easier on my knees. I could be wrong though.

All this talk just reminded me of the worst thing I ever did in Judo: Screaming "DEAD TREE DROP" at the top of my lungs like I'm in some anime when I did a successful kikuichi daoshi to someone during randori.
