Gravity


A good friend of mine made this graphic and I think it is very funny.  Although it does have a very good point that I want to point out briefly.  Gravity is usually a good thing, however, at the end of a throw where you are the inverted one (called Uke in Judo and other styles) and the ground is rapidly approaching, it is a harsh master.  I paraphrase one of my instructors by saying, "Your environment is a far more dangerous weapon than fists and feet."

Food for thought.
