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!

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.

Posted in: Japan's coronavirus entry ban disrupting lives of foreign residents See in context

You don't need any type of visa for the UK. Just come across the English Channel from France in a dingy as hundreds are doing every week. The British Navy will escort you into a safe harbour, You will be given a house and money and allowed to stay. Simples!

Posted in: Japan's coronavirus entry ban disrupting lives of foreign residents See in context

Ha ha and to think japan wanted to attract skilled foreigners to rescue their rapidly sinking economy! The Ghosn affair and this appalling entry ban policy have put paid to that for ever.

This entry ban policy has opened everybody's eyes to the fact that the PR is worthless, no better than a tourist visa. I think that it is all or nothing. Get Japanese Nationality if you really want to stay or get out as soon a possible.

Posted in: Naomi Osaka adds voice to protests over police brutality in U.S. See in context

Police kill a black man, that is terrible. Blacks killing blacks everyday, that is also terrible. But these riots are happening because these kids are having fun and it's a chance to smash up shops and grab free stuff. It's about time the army were out on the streets. Rioters should be told disperse, or the solders will open fire. This war.

Merkel is the so called "leader" who ruined Europe letting 2 million immigrants from 2015 to cause mayhem. She 's on the way out thank god. I am glad that she is not coming. I am sure our great President Trump is happy too. Our great President Trump is an absolute certain for re-election and we can hold the G7 meeting next year without merkel.

Posted in: ANA to require all passengers to wear face masks aboard aircraft from June See in context

I will not wear a useless ineffective mask under any circumstances. But as a diver, I am willing to wear my "breathing gear" on the fight. Does this satisfy the rabid members of the mask supporters club??

The US won't extradite these 2 to japan. It would like extraditing them to North Korea, they know it's impossible to get a fair trial in japan with their "system of justice'.

Disgraceful decision made by the japanese government. And to think at one time they were wanting to attract foreign talent......

philly1 nailed it as far as I am concerned. I wear ear plugs every night for a good night's sleep. And I have invested in a great pair of noise reduction headphones and when I am wearing them I hear zilch from anyone living in other apartments. Highly recommended for your sanity!

I have seen a theory that Kim deliberately hid away and put out the story that he had died. He wanted to see who would try to make a bid for power. And now he is back with a vengeance and a bloody purge is expected shortly. Today’s shooting was ordered by Kim to demonstrate that he still had control of the army.

Posted in: Gov't promises swift coronavirus payouts, starting in May See in context

At my workplace it seems unaminous amongst my Japanese colleagues that I have heard discussing this issue, that only Japanese nationals should get the money. One guy said to me why should we waste money on foreigners, they can always go home? There’s no sort of awareness amongst these people that some of us have lived in Japan over 25 years, have a Japanese spouse and children and pay a high amount of tax every year in its various form.
