Judo and Jujutsu

Judo is a form of wrestling used mostly in self-defense, and made popular by MMA tournaments such as UFC. It is based on a a knowledge of where the weak points in the human body are located. As a sport it is known as jujutsu or jujitsu. These are Japanese words, for it is most popular in Japan.

The object of judo is to kill or so injure an attacker as to make him completely defenseless. Judo was taught to men in the United States armed services during World War II so that they could defend themselves against enemy soldiers, especially the Japanese, in hand-to-hand combat.

A student of judo is taught how to press or strike various nerve centers and muscles of his opponent so as to temporarily paralyze him. Some of these centers are the solar plexus (just below the ribs), the Adam’s apple, the area behind the ear, and the upper lip. These centers are struck with the side of the hand, stunning the opponent and leaving him open for more direct attacks. Such attacks may often result in serious injury or even death due to damage of the nervous system, brain, and other sensitive areas of the body.

Jujutsu is a scientific way of wrestling. Balancing himself on his right hand, a Japanese expert places his opponent in a leg “scissors” while pulling him down and back with his left hand. He combines a throat-lock with an arm twist, and at the same time throws his opponent off balance by pushing his right foot into the knee.

Another important part of judo is to get your opponent off balance by striking or “clipping” him below the back of the knee with our leg, throwing him back and off his guard. There are various other ways of unbalancing the opponent, such as grasping the hand and quickly turning your back toward him, throwing him over your shoulder. This requires much practice and fast footwork. Such methods of attack make it possible for a small person to overcome a bigger person with little trouble. In fact, the weight of the bigger person is often a disadvantage to him, because the bigger he is the harder he falls.

Judo is often said to be a “dirty” form of jujutsu in which no holds are barred. Jujutsu was first developed by Chinese monks thousands of years ago to defend themselves against robbers. It was taken over by the warrior class of Japan, the samurai, who secretly passed it on from one generation to another. In modern Japan it is taught in schools to children in the form of physical training, and many Japanese soon became very good at it. The secrecy surrounding jujutsu has given many people the idea that it is the best method of defense and attack. However, a good wrestler can hold his own and even win over a jujutsu expert. Many jujutsu holds are used in modern wrestling and MMA.

Minecraft - The Greatest Game of the Decade


In 2009, Markus Persson released the best game of the decade: Minecraft. Minecraft is a sandbox game, this means it is a game based on the real scenarios of life. This includes the need for survival, so the players must feed the character in order for it to live. The player should also be able to provide the character the necessary shelter for protection. This is because, just like the real world, the night holds a lot of surprises, which are usually deadly for the character. But the best part, is when the players get to create their own world.

Creating A Place

Minecraft is a game that is all about creation. The players must destroy the things around them in order to create something. One of the first things they have to make is a shelter. This is because the shelter is something that will protect them. Aside from that, their shelter is one of the things that will serve as the masterpiece of the player’s imagination. There are no limits when it comes to creating something, as long as the player can imagine it, he can do it using the things that are around him.

To add to the already exciting game, the developers added other modes like quests and PvP’s. This will allow you to earn funds in order to add a piece of land to your properties or buy some items that will make your character live longer and stronger. Surviving the quests and other modes will also depend on these things. The character should be strong enough or the character should carry special items to help him. All of these things can be created and crafted with the things that surround the player. All they have to do is to destroy using the pickaxe, and create a sword with the debris.

This game is a mixture of real life and the greatest role playing games that people play online. The characters will live like human beings and they will do the things like fantastic characters in an online game. This is a kind of game that will give the player a lot of creative freedom. This will not limit them to the things provided by the game because the game gave them the right to create something for themselves. You can try Minecraft for free on some secure websites like tryfreeminecraft.net or by answering some online surveys that will not even take 30 minutes of your time. By then, you’ll have the time of your life.

Stress and Your Health

No one can blame you if you don't want to think about heart disease. You've got enough to worry about; your maniac boss, the batty woman in the apartment downstairs who complains when you walk too loudly, and let's not even talk about all that Valentine's Day pressure. How can you add something else to your to-do lost? Women often tell me their days are full from the time they get up to the time they go to bed, and I think it's getting worse.
If you haven't had one millisecond to think about yourself today, stop. Take a deep breath. And another one. Why is slowing down, even a little, so critical? Because doctors on the front lines of cardiovascular care are becoming convinced that stress is a killer. We've known that men had heart attacks because they had stressful jobs and roles; now women have those jobs. In so many ways, women are now men. Women are juggling so much that they’ve forgotten what's happening mentally affects them physically.

Stress doesn't just keep you from exercising or eating right (though that's often true); it also has a direct impact on your cardiovascular system. Scientists are still trying to prove how much damage stress can do, but evidence worldwide is beginning to show the link is irrefutable. Studies in Denmark and Japan found that highly stressed people had twice the risk of stroke as those who felt more at ease. Researchers in London discovered that stress levels could help predict which women and men were most likely to have heart disease. And a study at Johns Hopkins University showed that people whose blood pressure shot up during a stressful lab test were six times more likely to have a heart attack within six years n people who coped better; and the effect was more powerful than smoking or high cholesterol!

As the science gets better, I think we'll be stunned by how prevalent and powerful the stress connection is, especially for women. The ramifications of simply carrying on with our busy lives could be devastatingly high.

Scotland - Outlander's Country

I'm a fan of Outlander, which is a show about an English woman who travels back in time to Scotland. Thus, I've taken the time to do a bit of research on Scotland's past, thanks to Wikipedia.

Scotland is a country in the northern part of the island of Great Britain. Along with England, to the south, and Wales, to the southwest, and Northern Ireland on the other British iasland Scotland is a part of the UNited Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Scotland is an ancient country with a long history of independence.

Scotland is about 30,000 square miles in area, which is about the size of the state of South Carolina. About five million people live there, which is more than twice as many as live in South Carolina! Oh, and the capital of Scotland is Edinburgh.

What's Scotland Like?

Scotland can be divided into three main parts, the Highlands in the north, and the Lowlands in the center, and the Uplands in the south. The coastline is rocky and irregular, indented with many sea lochs (narrow inlets) and firths (wide inlets). The country is dotted with beautiful lakes, also called lochs. Many islands surround Scotland, including the Shetland and the Orkney Islands to the north and the Hebrides to the west. The Uplands are a region of rolling hills and valleys, with many rivers such as the Tweed, the Clyde, and the Trevior. The Lowlands are the industrial heart of Scotland. Three-quarters of the people live here, although it is only one-tenth of the country. The Lowlands have the best farm land of the ctounry and rich mineral deposits. The Highlands occupy the entire northern alf of Scotland and have scenery of breathtaking beauty. In this region is Ben Nevis, 4,406 feet high, the highest point on the island of Great Britain.

There are many beatiful and famous lakes, including Loch Lomond, the largest lake in Scotland. Among the many rivers are the Tay, the Dee, the Don, and the Spey. The summer home of the British royal family, Balmoral Castle, is on the Dee.

The climate of Scotland is mild for a country that lies so far to the north. The summers are cool and the winters are cold except in the Herbrides, where waters from the Gulf Stream of the Atlantic Ocean help to keep the winter weather mild.

I just finished the last episode of the season and I must say, the main British character (I forget his name) who whips Scottish people is my favorite character. One of the biggest things I hate about the show are the elongated sex scenes, but other than that, the story is quite compelling.
