    I have trained many years with my best friend Ryan in the martial arts class where we do judo and jujitsu. All of us students are like a family. We train hard and are very competitive here. Anyway I never suspected it but my sensei and I confronted Ryan and outed him as gay. We both went to the changing room and our instructor is a huge man 6'6 130 kg giant of a man stood in the doorway asked Ryan (alone) straight up "Ry are you gay?" several times. Ryan then broke down and admitted he his gay. I can't believe it he in his 20's and the straightest guy I know. We've been drinking sprees, Lap dancing clubs when we went laos, motor sports ! Since then he hasn't answered my messages or picks the phone up as I want to tell him it's cool. At the moment only sensei and me know. It will be awkward training with him next time we meet. Shall we tell everyone? What's the best way to deal with it?

  • What would happen if a MMA fighter killed another fighter in the ring by accident, would they be in trouble?

    Best answer: Generally a fight that leads to a death is still a win. The only exception would be if rules were broken during the match.
    But it does cause issues for a lot of fighters. Some of whom retire after it happens.

  • If a Muay Thai fighter was brought down to the ground, is he gonna know how to fight?

    Cause I wrestled with a muay thai guy and he toyed with me as if he knows jiu jitsu moves but doing stuff like the armbar and I asked if he knows anything other than Muay Thai and he said no. Also he was so flexible and relaxed

  • Are black guys naturally good fighters?

    Best answer: Not always....
    It depends on the individual.

    Kung fu, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Muay Thai originated from Asia.

    If there are Black men who are good at fighting, it's because they've worked hard at developing their chosen style(s). It's not solely due to them being Black.

  • My body is too weak for judo?

    Best answer: If you start off weak, that only means you will get stronger. So thats a good reason to keep going. You can always train with weights in your spare time, and run up stairs etc to gain more strength and fitness. Nothing to do with age, and anyway 40 is still young

    Best answer: This is a somewhat instructor and sub-style specific question. Schools vary in how they approach those concepts. Most are not religious, but may have some elements of spiritual development. There are modern schools that lower the emphasis on those concepts. Know that you are a consumer, and you have the right to politely ask how a dojo approaches the spiritual aspects of training. I will warn you about Aikido though. The founder's intent was to combine martial practice with spiritual development. Most Aikido schools will expect you to focus somewhat on it. But there are offshoots like Real Aikido where it might be lowered. Shodokan Aikido is a sub style with competitive sparring as well.

    If you're trying to learn how to defend yourself: Try a self defense system like Krav Maga. It is specifically about self defense. There's little to no spiritual element to it.

    Combat sports may be a good option for you to avoid the spiritual side as well.
