    Ivan Gomes Research Paper

    • 1930 Words
    • 8 Pages

    ability was also owed to his training with high caliber judokas such as Hayashi Kawamura in Recife and Massaioshi Saito in Belem do Pará, with whom he perfected his Kata-Guruma throw (Fireman’s carry). Ivan and Jose made their names fighting Northeastern states of Brazil, away from the Gracie family buzz. This is a region with a very unique Jiu-Jitsu history, one where Takeo Yano and George Gracie (see Gracie Jiu-Jitsu history) were the true progenitors of this grappling style. Master Takeo Yano, who taught George Gracie and Biuson Osmar, did not follow just Jigoro Kano’s Kodokan doctrine. Instead, Yano was a Japanese Navy man and an expert in hand to hand combat. He was a student of Hajime Isogai (first 10th Degree alive from Kodokan and first Judo Master in the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai, the first official martial arts organization sanctioned by the Emperor to standardize martial arts throughout Japan and promoted the martial virtues of samurai warriors); Yano did not just focus in grappling sporting environment, because the Butoku kai leaned towards mixing techniques with other styles… Ivan´s record of victories brought him some recognition and soon an opportunity to fight Brazil’s number 1 fighter of the time, Carlson Gracie, emerged. Ivan Gomes was a hungry 23 year old kid and immediately accepted the fight. The fight with Carlson Gracie occurred on the 28th of December, 1963 at the Sesc pavilion in Recife; and it ended in a draw. Many years after their encounter, Carlson…

    Essay About Wrestling

    • 5 Pages

    The discourse community for wrestling is different from most that I have heard. It could be similar to most high school sports because every high school has their own way of saying things. This Community differs from other communities because if you have never heard a person who wrestles talk about it or have never wrestled yourself, it can get very confusing. Wrestling is different because most terms are not heard in every day language. The moves are different for every team, although every…

    Controversies Of Judo

    • 608 Words

    Controversies Of Judo The controversies that judo is solely a sport martial art and does not well apply to self-defense are endless. However, I personally believe that judo is one of the best martial arts to defend one's self. The majority of people say that the lack of strike and kick training in judo results in vulnerability. Others say that the heavy use of the 'GI' (practice uniform) is just crippling the players for “real life” circumstances. There's also the argument that there's too much…

    “The Tiger With No Eyes” We had made a complete stop in front of Halawa District Park Gym. The Lawakua Kajukenbo Club students unloaded the bus of goodies: variety boxes of Lays chips and granola bars, overly-used sparring equipment, bags of slightly deflated red kicking shields with black straps, tables and tent poles. I pulled my two scrawny arms around a box of Quaker Oats granola bars and followed the pack. As my friends and I turned the corner, the rest of the group formed a home base…

    Attaining the rank of black belt is not an easy task. A black belt is not for quitters, the non-disciplined, nor for the undedicated. A black belt is for people who are self-motivated, dedicated, and possessing of a non-quitting spirit. To me, a black belt is not the end of a journey. It is the beginning of a journey of helping others in their studies of martial arts and further improving my own skills. I got the idea of starting karate when I was in fifth grade. One of my friends was a…

    schoolyard brawl, but sparring with someone in a martial art. That is what I do twice every week because I take Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo. I have been taking it for almost a year now, but I occasionally still feel a little uneasy when I battle against higher ranked opponents. But when I first started, I was extremely nervous, as a consequence, I wanted to drop out of the class early. It was April of 2017 when I started Judo. I remember seeing kids with much higher belts than me. As a…
