It needs to be family-friendly so that the kids will be inspired - not ghastly violence.
Take a look at all the Jackie Chan, Steven Seagal, Bruce Lee, Kung Fu Panda, Karate Kid etc. movies that have become family classics. As a parent of a young child, I would rather my child watch these PG movies than worry about John Wick's gory and gratuitous violent scenes that make it R-rated.
Wouldn't any child be inspired to learn one of the martial arts by the movie that he or she loved?
TL;DR at the bottom.
For it to be abuse, it has to be
cruel- causing pain or suffering; willfully causing pain or suffering to others, or feeling no concern about it.
At first, these definitions appear to contradict her defense. But... The definitions of cruel require the actions to cause pain or suffering.
The flip does not harm him, and he isn't suffering due to these actions.
It is not cruel. Therefore it is not abuse. It is, at worst, assault. Which is still bad, yes, except the dude can, in fact, take it. And when two 16 year old friends rough house, it's physical attacks. The definition of assault. However, nobody gets hurt, so it isn't an issue.
Percy does not get hurt by these actions of Annabeth's. Including the play-punching and stuff.
I am not saying Annabeth is justified in her actions. With anyone who isn't as durable as Percy, who tanked a direct volcanic eruption, it would be abuse. But he is not negatively affected whatsoever by these actions.
It is not abuse.
It isn't even really assault.
It is roughhousing.
As to show why it is not a double standard, and why Percy shouldn't play fight, at least not like she does.
If he play punches her, it's fine. But he has to hold a lot back because the difference is their strength and durability are HEAVILY outmatched. Percy is BY FAR her physical superior. He survived not just the direct blast of Mount St. Helens, he was directly at the epicenter, since he caused the damn thing. Annabeth wouldn't have had one cell survive that. The sky thing in TTC is more dependent on willpower than actual strength, so it's not a dependable comparison. Even if their punching force is equal and all that, his durability makes it extremely difficult for Annabeth actually physically hurt him with just her bare hands. If he felt threatened, he could easily throw her off and knock her out in seconds. But Annabeth does not have that amount of durability.
Look at The Boys (+18. If you are not 18 or older I do not advise looking up and watching this show, it is brutally graohic.) Queen Maeve lets Homelander shoot her directly, point blank, with a live AR, because she can take it easily.
If Annabeth could take direct volcanic blasts and shit, then Percy playfully doing this would be just fine, as long as Annabeth is at the very least okay with it. And that's all without acknowledging the fact that he wouldn't, even if she could take it.
It's not because of genders.
It's because of stats. At least, it... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just got the all clear from my consultant that starting judo will not put me at any greater risk than someone that hasn’t had cranial surgery. I just have to wait for COVID to go away now.
I was wondering whether or not there is anything I could do to prepare before starting? (e.g more cardio, bodyweight exercises, etc) Thanks
To try and condense it, both of these MAs were very, very different from what you see today. I'm got a highlight some of the changes the Olympics made.
Judo - Gi grab enforcement. You have to grab the Gi. Old style you could wrestle.
TaeKwonDo - You don't score head points if you don't hit the helmet.
-You can't punch the face.
Wrestling was also watered down with submissions taken out.
In summary, the Olympics - your home for watered down martial arts!
Thought this would create some discussion. A judo olympian recently got promoted to blue belt in bjj and entered a local bjj tournament. As expected the he cleaned out his division and the absolute. Link to his videos below.
I have started a petition on leg grabs in judo - yes its a topic which has been done to death, but I thought I'd see what kind of traction it can get.
If you support it, feel free to share it around social media, YouTube etc
Is there some historic reference to 'adaptability' in judo?
AFAIK the progression of principles in judo derive from jujutsu and then Kanô shihan's thoughts, influenced by his education. From 柔 to 精力善用•自他共栄。Maximum efficiency - Mutual welfare and benefit
Jüjutsu's principle 柔 jû gentleness is traditionally thought extracted from the ancient Chinese military text,
the Three Strategies of Huang Shigong, 黄石公三略
(Chinese: Huáng Shígōng Sānlüè).
Jū nō sei gō (the Japanese pronunciation - Chinese is something like róu néng zhì gāng)
Gentleness controls hardness
That traditionally becomes the origin of jûjutsu's 柔の理 'jû no ri' Principle of Gentleness'. 'Gentleness' is also found in the later works of Confucius and Lao Tzu.
Kanô shihan referred to jû no ri a number of times but worked out his own principles for jûdô, somewhat after the fact, then applied those two principles to everything from jûdô to international relations, and everything in between.
Some modern jûdô writers have mentioned adaptability as a result of gentleness, but it doesn't seem to be part of a classic definition of jûdô.
Hello - I did judo when I was young bull wrestler trying to perfect my game and I enjoyed it. I didn’t even think about size because I wa 103 lb that looked 120 ripped.
Now I’m 28 looking to get back into judo. However I’m concerned of how small I am and my question is - should I bulk up before starting judo. I’m 145 5’5 and somewhat out of shape. My ultimate goal is to get back into sports. However I also want to get some self defense experience under my belt. My second question is would judo be a good self defense method for someone my stature?
Playing basketball, i injured my left ankle twice. Though I have not taken surgery. I really wanna do judo so much! After watching Putin do it, I wanted to do it so much. Most martial artists say doing jiujitsu or hand boxing is good for people who don't have a good ankle. Even Jiu Jitsu though, when ankle leg locks are allowed, it can be dangerous.
Like basketball or surfing which injures ankles, does judo do the same?
Really great story about her life. She is what it means to dedicate your whole life to something you love. Sometimes you have to take pause and remember, we as Judokas are lucky and blessed to be given the gifts we've been given from those that came before us.
Someone posted this on the r/mma, thought it fits here quite well.
Is Putin for real solid Judoka? Or his black belt is a political thing?
Been doing bjj for almost 5 years. Bjj gyms I've trained at were all super chill. No need to bow, no need to ask for permission for anything, and you can say and do pretty much what you want.
I want to start judo because I am jealous of those beautiful throws you guys do. But I'm worried my care free surfer hobo attitude would be offensive to a judo gym.
Have you guys ever seen bjj guys getting chewed out at ur judo gym? If you came from bjj, did you have trouble adjusting to judo customs? What do judokas think of bjj guys that join your gym? Do you guys call it a gym or a dojo?
Hey guys, I’m a bjj guy and my uncle has taken an interest in judo. He has decided to sign up at falcon judo in Miami, Florida. How would he know if the gym is reputable or not? Does anyone have experience at this location?
I have no gyms nearby or any dojo’s and I live in a relatively rural part of the country, my main interest is self defence as it’s not like I’ll be finding many competitions in my area, is there an online class or a personal trainer I could hire online that could come down and help or something similar? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hey guys. Newbie guard here. At work right now actually.. Graveyard. Guarding gaming room with the bartender.
Last night worked a pub and was a little out of my depth dealing with someone who was squaring up to fight.
A lot of this is confidence/experience/persistence but I'll need to look in to more training. Been advised a lot of different things. BJJ is popular and accessible but I've heard can focus on floor grappling, Judo is focused on standing grappling but is not as accessible and finally Krav Maga.. looks specialised in self defence but a video for a local club had so much groin whacking I couldn't watching without hearing Bobby Hill say "That's my purse! I don't know you!"
Krav Maga also stands out as "be a warrior! Grr!" Where BJJ is like "let's do some sport, man."
So I'm competing in a few weeks as a 135 lbs blue belt against another 135 lbs blue belt in a bjj tournament. However he's got a brown belt in judo. I'm immediately thinking of pulling guard asap to avoid falling for any of his stand up attacks he may possible have. Any other tips?
