I'm Interested In learning Judo, I want to learn how to stand up to an opponent by immobolizing them-followed by an assault of some sort I guess.
My Bio, 5'9,210 lbs, 18 years old
I've been doing cardio/weight training for 2 years now and have built some muscle but I'm still a bit fat(dunno if that matters).
I will moving to Austin Texas this summer so if anyone can reccomend a school?

Hi Moco welcome to the forum.
http://austinjiujitsu.com/ajj/index.html

This place has a decent web site, it may be worth your time to check them out. It looks like they teach Juijitsu, but I think you'll find that judo and juijitsu are very similar.
http://studentorgs.utexas.edu/judo/

The University of Texas has a judo club that is more sport oriented if you are in to that.

Also one of the forum regulars, Ket is from Austin so maybe he could steer you in the right direction.

Good luck
