I already take chen t'ai chi, but I want to add a more active art. I tried taekwondo and LOVED it, but some of the kicks didn't agree with me, so I think I'll be better off with a non-kicking art. I was thinking about checking out the local Judo club, but I do have some concerns. I am 30-ish, female, VERY slight build, not very strong. I have no preference for self-defense vs. sport. I am in this for fun, exercise, challenge of learning new skills, and martial arts culture (really enjoy the respect/camaraderie/focus in my other MA classes). Do you think Judo is an OK fit for me given my age/size? My lower back is "slightly" weak, but taekwondo doesn't bother it. Is this an issue, with all the falling in Judo? I'm not worried about muscle soreness/bruises, more concerned about other injuries since I am small (are 200 lb guys and muscley amazon women going to break me in half?? lol). I'm not as durable as I was 10 years ago, obviously! What do you think?
