Judo (유도). It keeps my heart beating. After 20+ years of training I found myself relearning the art from scratch in many aspects. Though heavily reliant on throwing techniques, judo is also known for its sport-specific style of ground fighting, or Newaza. Korea has the blueprint for success and a solid track record of bringing their players to the pinnacle of the game.
Without question, judo in Korea played a major role in my overall experience. Both North and South Korea have a rich history in this “pajama” grappling sport. With Korea’s moderate geographical size and population, the constant production of world-class talent makes it impossible to not enjoy exposure to high-level training.
You want to get your throw on? Do it in South Korea.
The judo videos, training, the events, the friends, the memories; I’m glad to be able to share them with you.
