    I've been doing powerlifting for almost 8 years now, but lately I've been more and more interested in judo and I'd actually like to start practicing it. However, I do have an issue. I'm a really big dude, around 500 lbs, but very strong. Is this an issue?

    Weight and size will only be an issue for you in the beginning....then you will get used to being thrown by small lightweights Wink

    No problem.

    "Li'l" Steve Leadbetter probably has 40kg on you. Look him up next you're in Oz.

    I applaud your decision to follow your desire to study Judo.  You are a big dude, but as long as you can find the right school, and you take the time to learn the techniques and not rely solely on strength to get the job done you be fine. Keep us apprised on your progress.

    "... around 500 lbs, but very strong. Is this an issue?"
    Only if you like winning.
    Or are afraid of losing.

    Kano shihan sought out very strongest recruits to become judoka from the earliest days of the Kodokan.

    Many were not very good.
    Some were failures.
    Some became great.
    A number were outright frauds.
    ....
    Which are you?
