Why some links on the Site Map aren’t valid?
in all its forms
and applications, is very wide and expending subject. To reflect this Judo-For-Self-Defense.com
site is, and always will be, under development. Site

defined in the

Why link text in the Site Map not exactly matching name or title of the
not only as the
site technical index, but as the site definition as well. It’s defining
subject of Judo-For-Self-Defense.com
site in whole and creates relations between different sub-elements
self-defense, training, etc.). On the other side, each page is build as
self-contained entry that can be seen by itself as well as a part of
site. Therefore, as page name, title, and headline should describe page
itself, its representation (link) on the Site Map should describe it in
contest of the site.
It’s not Site Map question, but… Why your site named Judo-For-Self-Defense.com,
but banner says “Just Other Judo Page…”?
A. Judo is very large topic and my
approach to it isn’t very
traditional from official Kodokan or IJF perspective. In the banner I
express my believe that when it is one Judo it is more then one way to
represent, and develop it. It is always place for other
Judo page out there. As I can’t use “Just Other Judo Page…”
for site name as it will be non-descriptive and confusing, I chose to
this phrase as the banner and name site Judo-For-Self-Defense.com
as it better describes
what my site is about (as it’s not about sport Judo score tracing or
particular Judo club, for example).
Your site listing many styles of Judo. What particular style you are
A. My specialty is SAMBO.
to this, I have instructor certificate in Krav
Why you’re listing as Judo styles many martial arts and combat sports
that traditionally not linked to it anyhow or derived from it, but not
having any affiliation with Judo anymore?
A. This is why it’s other
Judo page… I see Judo from its original perspective, as I
expect Dr. Kano
saw it. Judo evolved a lot from its origins in 1880th
Japanese traditions in Judo foundation is hard to overestimate, but if,
God’s providence, Dr. Kano would develop his Judo in England
in the same years, it would
be based on bare knuckle boxing.
Why you’re writing Judo as a name, starting with capital letter, and
jujutsu – all in low case?
A. Because Judo
is a name
of a very particular martial art school derived from jujutsu
and created by Dr. Kano, and jujutsu
is all-inclusive Japanese name for all its hand-to-hand
What is your expected audience from self-defense perspective?
A. This site is primarily addressing
issues of civilian
self-defense. However, some discussions geared
application as well.
Do you run your own dojo?
A. No, I don’t. I’m working
eight-to-five as a software engineer to
put bread on my family’s table and writing Judo-For-Self-Defense.com
site in my spare time
(if I have any J).
As Bob Orlando
said in his very thoughtful and provoking “Martial Arts in America”
the best reason to open dojo is to be able to train your own way. I’m
lucky as Mr. Orlando yet. I just created my site to define what my dojo
about and maybe one day…
