Judo totally ruled, I got a private lesson and I got thrown a lot. Right after I got done talking about being light on my feet and graceful and going easy at first, a guy who had been hanging around in the doorway says loudly, "Watch out for that vicious swpthleg (obv. using my real name, but you get it). DUrr hurr hurr."
I sighed inwardly and said, "I do have speeds besides on and off." FFS.
Fueling up. 4 little swplet sized kids may be sleeping over tonight. I will be making that liquor store run that I forgot to do yesterday.
Trying to find the names of the super awesome techniques that got taken out of judo in the early part of the 20th century because they were too dangerous. They are all listed together on the stuff I printed out from judoinfo.com long before I started lessons, but the ones that were removed aren't identified.
I asked my teacher if they were ever used anywhere, and he said, "They're, uh, demonstrated."
