Posted in: Man arrested for sexually molesting teenage girl See in context

Disgraceful behaviour. Why does any one ingulge in such disgusting behaviour? Why didn't he just get himself a girlfriend? As it is, he may find he will be regularly molested by Mr Big inside.....

And I agree with self defence classes/martial arts classes for all girls and women. These so called "men" won't be so keen to molest and attack women if they know they could get hurt..... At my Taekwondo club there are some females with a fearsome ability to defend themselves in need.

Posted in: Judo in Japan getting unwanted scrutiny for abuse, violence See in context

I am a second dan in both Judo and Taekwondo. It's actually amazing the difference in the atmosphere between the 2 clubs here in Japan. The Judo club has a very strict severe atmosphere where everybody is supposed to know their place and woe betide anyone who steps out of their role.... On the other hand, the Taekwondo club where I help with the teaching, has a much more relaxed and easy atmosphere and I think is a lot more enjoyable for everyone.

Posted in: 'Will you shut up, man?' Repeated interruptions, insults mark fiery debate between Trump and Biden See in context

Enjoyable debate with President Trump the clear winner. 4 more years are a dead cert. Biden looked exactly as he is, a stumbling dementia suffering old man. He cannot be president and fortunately he will get nowhere near the presidency.

And biden never condemns the marxist terrorist group blm so there's no reason for President Trump to condemn their counterparts on the Right. Amusing watching the lefties getting all hot under the collar about the White Supremacists while never saying a word about the blm terrorists!

Watching biden just made me laugh to be honest. Is this best the democrats can do??

If china tries to invade Taiwan they will be crushed by the US and their allies. It will be the last mistake china ever makes.

Posted in: Judge OKs extradition to Japan of 2 men accused of aiding Ghosn escape See in context

Extradition will never happen. This outrageous decision by this "judge" will be blocked and appealed for years to come and then dropped.

Posted in: Japan to give $5 mil in aid to Lebanon in wake of massive explosion See in context

So blatantly obvious that the Js are trying buy Ghosn back. It won't work. Firstly Lebanon will not extradite one of their own citizens and secondly, they know Ghosn was the victim of a set up. The Js should put Sakawa et al in prison before trying to bribe Lebanon to send him back.

Posted in: Japan to lift re-entry restrictions on foreign residents from Sept 1 See in context

Jeez don't you just hate the J government with all these rules and regulations they keep imposing on us? I am not leaving Japan under any circumstances, maybe for years to come. If somebody dies, I just cannot go to the funeral.

sorry Koike don't think anyone cares about the 'pics anymore. I think people have other far more important priorities like, I dunno, not catching this damn virus, keeping their jobs......

Posted in: Japan to ease entry restrictions for foreign students See in context

All these "rules " and "changes" are just too opaque and confusing for my poor old brain! I am a PR (also known as tourist in the jp government's eyes), I am not leaving Japan until either everything is 100% clear and certain or my Japanese passport comes through. Could be 100 years from now!

Posted in: Japan's re-entry ban to contain virus unfair, Western business lobbies say See in context

Well if you want to stay in Japan get a Japanese passport and secretly keep your foreign passport. This is the route I am taking now. As for reciprocity, of course all countries must immediately ban Japanese from entering their countries.

Posted in: I never imagined that I would receive something like this in the city I was born and raised in. See in context

Disgusting. But there will always be morons and low IQ people about. I would just ignore it. If the insults etc turn physical that would be a totally different matter, then I would not ignore it.

Posted in: Japan, Singapore to ease COVID-19 travel restrictions from September See in context

Eveybody can now see that a PR visa in Japan is worth exactly the same as a tourist visa. If you need to stay long term in Japan you must get a Japanese passport. Secretly keep your foreign passport as many do.

If this guy tried to do this to some of the high ranked ladies at my judo club, he would be badly injured right now. I wish all females had self defence abilities. Judo, boxing, Taekwondo whatever.....

Posted in: Japan and judo - an unbreakable bond See in context

Well as I said in the very first comment here, I have been doing Judo for 2 decades, I really enjoy it and has a lot of useful techniques should I need to use them for real. Some people don't rate Judo I see, well that's up to you. Find the martial art which suits you.

Posted in: Japan and judo - an unbreakable bond See in context

I love Judo, I've been at it over 20 years now. Great fun and useful for self defence. I also have also been training in Taekwondo for many years. Someone at work the other day asked me which one is more useful in a real situation? Both have their merits and demerits but they are both just highly enjoyable!

Posted in: Kim's sister says no need for another U.S.-N Korea summit See in context

IF Biden gets in, I wonder how he will deal with Kim? God help us!

They just want to create another crisis to get supplies of rice/fuel/money etc. The usual scenario.

Posted in: Some people argue that mandating anyone to wear face masks during the pandemic is a violation of human rights. Do you agree? See in context

No masks are totally useless. Wearing one is just virtual signalling. We should all be forced to wear Hazmat suits in public. Totally stops transmission of the virus.

Posted in: Japan to let in 250 foreigners per day from Australia, NZ, Thailand, Vietnam under eased travel curbs See in context

The PR in Japan has no meaning. It has the same status as a Tourist Visa. Basically you have to get Japanese Nationality or consider yourself as a temporary tourist and then get out.
