comment Solo martial art learning
Judo can be practice alone, if you have a good base. movements and getting your oponent offbalance is repetitive. when I got lazy and complain about doing the same move more than 10 or 15 time, my coach keep on telling me how he practice O-soto-gari on trees in japan. For a long time, thousands of time per days. After, he went to town competitions and won easily doing only this move. ( should I turn this into a judo-kid movie ? )

comment What are good questions to ask for a black belt testing?
This feels like weird to me (not saying its a bad question). We didnt had any "interview" at my tests (in judo). People trust the coaches decision, if your coach send you in, basicly he's vooching for you and thats enough.

comment Is the highest judo belt really red?
Also judoinfo.com/judan.htm its not true that 10th belt is a ceremonial acheivement ... or reserve the the "head" of the art ... again, technically anyone could get there. It just takes time (more if you arent considered an exceptional candidate) and you must show dedication to the arts.

comment Correct position to leave an attacker after doing an strangulation to him
That is a question to bring up to your coach, btw. hes the one who teach you to choke poeple, hes also the one who should teach you about recovery.

comment How do I practice judo throws on my own without a partner?
you dont have to practice strengh when your alone, practice speed, stability and position. using any wall, tree, beams etc as all the answers suggest are great way to do it.

comment Stahara word usage
my coach was hiroshi nakamura, best japanese coach in all canada ... and he always yelled at when I was training : "Use 'Hara' thierry savard! ". so I'd stick with it myself, since he learned in japan, I guess its refer this way over there too

comment Underwater Rear Naked Choke
I agree, my sister had her lifeguard license, and they teach you how to escape hold and grab by panicking "victims". I think you could try this way.
