I would be more concerned about strangulation and other injuries from having headgear on. Also, you risk broken fingers and wrists due to getting caught in the gear. The issue here might be that they want to look at the floor. Usually, Judo floors have a spring to them, and are built to take a lot of impact. Not that I am advocating overly-rough, careless martial training, because there has to be a line somewhere. But at the same time, injuries and accidents happen in martial arts. I do hope the boy recovers, though. It's a shame to have such an incident happen. Sensei should have acted after the boy started vomiting.

I had not realized what kind of an issue this was until I saw the documentary "Jiro Dreams of Sushi". At one part, his son is talking about the issues concerning the size and stocks of the Tuna. I'm glad Japan is finally taking a bit of initiative and charging headfirst into this problem. Hope they follow through! I'd like to enjoy tuna for the rest of my life :)

Prescription drugs AND alcohol? Wow. I mean, this dude was clearly a nutjob. I'll be interested what charges they will overall stick him with. The guy was bi-polar and suffered from schizophrenia? Then he started pounding drinks? They need to slam him with public intoxication disorderly conduct, too.

Wow, China and Japan's relationship is like that of two people who've been married for farrrr too long. China is just looking for reasons to be at Japan's throat!
