These are some of my son's old practice videos when he was just starting Judo. He asked me if I can share some of the stuffs that I've learned during my younger years in hope that he could pick-up some stuffs that he could probably mix with Judo because back then his performance really sucks. Our arts are different, him Judo, me FMA/CQC plus some other foreign art that I picked up along the way. I had 3 main problems, no.1 is that I have little experience teaching newbies and kids, no.2 is that I grew fat/heavy and no.3 is that I have been away from MA for many years.
I tried on my old gi and got a big laugh from my wife... The pants fits ok but the jacket was tight so I had to find a new replacement. The belt's length got a bit short but sucking in my tummy did the trick, lol!
The videos below was my first come-back from my loooong MA sleep and proof of how slow, rusty, and clumsy I became. Practicing at night inside our small house without my eyeglasses didn't make things easier and could hardly see things coming. I also found out that receiving direct blows is more painful now compared to when I was younger and a direct hit on the groin still felt like a hit on the groin, lol!
Though we both suck, we really had tons of fun.
