I've done judo longer than many of you have been alive, and it isn't the falls that kill you... it's all that stinkin' gettin' up to start over...




My apologies to anyone too stupid to understand that was a joke.

Some of you guys need to stay on your medication... (no need to send me more hate mail... that was a joke too)

Howdy Dereck, what part of this yahoo province are you in? If you are interested in seeing a huge Judo tournament there will be one this Sat. April 8 at the West Edmonton Mall. Juniors will likely fight in the moring and IJF and Seniors start a bit later. Great public forum for a tournament to get people interested. I have to work so I won't be able to go but many good judoka will be there. It should be fun to watch, especially the team tournament at the end.


Also about this groundwork thing, I have also found lately that working on constantly changing techniques while practising or during ne-waza randori is helping a lot. If you just try to force one or two moves all the time you quickly lock into a stalemate with your opponent, or he/she just starts countering you and then beating you. If you always keep changing, going for what seems most obvious to you until you finally get something locked in really good then it does a few things, it keeps you constantly thinking about your moves, keeps you moving at at steady pace (instead of locking up really hard on one technique) and it keeps your opponent working too, less time for them to think. I am just throwing this out as a training method right now, but I have had some success with it in competition too except that in shia you are fighting so much harder it is often dangerous to work through techniques you are not so good at.

I hail from just outside of Edmonton and am aware of this event at West Edmonton Mall. We recently had a Judo guy join our school to cross train to learn some stand up and to learn more ground fighting skills with BJJ/JJJ. He was training with me and we both were going to compete in a no gi submission grappling tournament in Edmonton. He got injuried (not by me) and was unable to and he wanted to heal up as he will be doing this. I will be dropping by to watch him compete.

Back on this orginaly thread, when I was training for this tournament (my first) I wanted to go but also I was frightened and didn't want to go. I went and am glad I did.

The light heavy weight (myself) and the heavy weights fought in a cage similar to the UFC. After my first match which came to a draw I crashed physically and mentally and wondered why I was doing it. I wanted to quit and scratch my name off of the list. I didn't and I said to myself I will do one more and I did that. Then I did another and another until I had 8 matches. I had 2 wins, 5 loses and 1 draw. I learned things I need to work on. I learned I panicked a few times and could have easily got out of things if I had just calmed down. I learned I have good stand up and am hard to take down, which I think comes from my earlier wrestling days. I learned that I actually love it and that there is no shame in tapping out because I can learn from losing more so then winning. Sometimes you just need to face things head on and see how things turn out. Sometimes they are bad but then there are times they are great. Now I want to do more. Back to class tonight to train.

SubZero I'm glad you are sticking with it and you were able to tap out some people. If this boosts your to the next level then excellent. You can learn far more from people that are better then you then if you are better then them. Good Job
