Ever heard of these guys? Fedor Emelianenko and Shinya Aoki? They both grew up practising Judo; it formed the base for their elite MMA careers.

 

 

So how does Judo prepare a person for mixed martial arts? The fast hand movements of Judo and angles used in kumi-kata (gripping) are very similiar to boxing. The level changes and distance closing involved in excuting throws in Judo are more diverse than wrestling. Judo also gives you a wide variety of different pins and submissions.

 

Perhaps the BEST thing Judo training can do for MMA is mastering the transitions. Executing a perfect throw and landing in an armbar submission is a very slick way to win a fight!

What happens now?

Now that the Olympics is done and dusted I’ve got to make some big decisions. I have refused to make any plans until the Olympics were done and now it’s time to shape my short, mid and long term future.

Progress – How the hell do you measure it?

Judo is one of the easiest sports to make you feel miserable when you are not winning, and the complexity of the sport can lead practitioners to feel like they are getting nowhere or even going backwards.
