@DaveLiepmann Thanks: a very interesting read. If you duplicate your answer there to this question, I will gladly accept it: and hopefully it will then be a bit easier to find (for me, looking at the existing related/suggested items, the mention of a specific technique in the existing question guided me away from what is a very good, general purpose answer)

@DaveLiepmann Thanks, your answer there is very helpful (though it's worth noting that two out of the three links no longer work).

This shouldn't be tagged as judo: wrist locks aren't legal in competition judo.

comment Best martial arts for a 6 and 8 year old?
@slugster PS, I say the above with no pride: after only a few years of competitive judo experience, I very much count myself as at the lower end of the ability spectrum, I am nothing special. I have however had the pleasure of being "reminded" of my insignificant ability by some (literally) world-class judoka and have spoken with them at length as to how they came to their knowledge and the one thing they consistently mention is time served on the mat, aka experience.

Ok, so not really an instructor then: we'll ignore that. It's not harsh judgement, let me explain. I don't care if you can pass some exam, you're not a real black belt until you have experience applying your techniques against real opponents... SUCCESSFULLY in competition. And THAT is what takes time, regardless of how much you practice, there are only so many competitions that any body can endure in a year and it's not enough... this is about standards. See what I mean now? So, let these ppl wear their one or two year "black" belts, but at least don't humour their delusion.

Good answer, but should really mention the possibility of injury to an unprepared uke too. (as the other two answers do)

Holy crap, you can even become an "instructor" as well as a black belt with that course... come on @Sardathrion, that's complete nonsense - as is your implication that my last sentence is inaccurate... ESPECIALLY given that we're talking about CHILDREN (how much time do you think they'll be spending doing martial arts in reality?? 3 classes a week max). sigh
