comment What are the long term consequences of practicing judo?
I disagree that chokes could have a long term impact on your health. it not like you're receiving 10 or 15 well applied chokes in 1 training. It's like saying arm lock can have injury impact when you practice them. in practice, you stop as soon as you have the choke "in position" ; you dont apply any pressure on it. As for competition, in 15 years i've never been choked, and I've done two myself. It's nothing close to a situation that can lead to "long-term damage"

Btw, your WRIST should do the "throwing off balance" in 95% of your throw ...
