    Saw this movie soon after I started judo ... just ran across it while searching for ... of all things ... an itsutsunokata video ...




    Almost all Americans go into judo expecting to become samurai, even the adult beginners. Maybe especially the adults. As unrealistic as that is, it is an under-appreciated market as we go around trying to pitch European jacket wrestling to people.

    I remember seeing that while watching the movie years ago, on TV. I was like, oooo, Judo wins again !

    I believe Aikidoka are doing a better job at pitching the samurai thing…

    Why "european" jacket wrestling ?

    Because the IJF is controlled by (eastern) Europeans and it is they who are denuding judo.

    About aikido ... you are correct. Unfortunately ... well, let's just say there is a wide variability in aikido ... that sometimes ... well ... let's just say some gots it and some ain't.

    Why "European jacket wrestling?" Because Olympic judo is, and because I am being deliberately provocative. Wink
