comment Shoulder brace for Judo?
Thanks. I hadn't considered the point about increasing resistance to rotation, that's something I'll be discussing with physio and chiro to see where the risks and benefits lie for my specific situation. The impact protection plate also looks good for helping avoid a seperated shoulder from the suplex (although obviously I'll be doing my best to avoid letting anyone WPR me from behind).

comment Shoulder brace for Judo?
I did state in the question that I intended to have it strengthened first. The brace isn't for weak muscles, it would be for the ligaments, which can't be rehabbed.

comment Why do taekwondoists bounce so much? (And how do we help them stop?)
How is their squatting ability? If they lack the strength to squat to thighs parallel while holding someone their own weight in a fireman's carry (think kata guruma) that'll be a significant barrier to them lowering their hips enough for a throw.

Putting your weight fully on your heels is a bad habit - makes it a lot easier to get thrown, particularly with morote gari. While it might correct for being bouncy, it'll be something they'll have to once again correct later.

comment Are Aikido movies on the internet helpful for beginners?
Ideally though, there should still be flexibility within the styles. TKD and Karate are pretty similar, but you would wonder why when doing TKD they might insist on a narrower stance and karate might insist on a wider stance, and why there isn't a range of stances you could choose based on your body type.
