    trainng with the national team?

    Is it that easy just to turn up and train?

    That would be a top class experience..

    Personally..great stronger, fitter..etc..

    compete as much as possible when healthy

    Have a closer look at open guard and particular popsitions that needs work..

    add in an extra drilling day..even only 1 hr a week to make a differance..

    Lots of people talking about taking Judo more seriously and I'm the same, mainly because I'm crap at it. I hate being crap at something.

    Also really want to try and some no gi training in somehow.

    Take as many classes as pos. Step up to min 4 technique, 2 rolling. Plus:
    Twice a week conditioning: Gain 4 kilos lean muscle mass
    Continue with at least one additional hour drilling
    Get back to the Muay Thai or Boxing at least once a week
    BJJ holiday, probably New York, 2 weeks or a month depending.
    Targets for the year: medal in one tournament.

    I'm never going to be a takedown artist, but should I want to teach in the end, I would at least like to feel that I know what I'm talking about. I can do decent enough stand-up if I have to, but it's not my strength and without seriously letting my groundwork go, it's unlikely to be. But could I seriously call myself an instructor somewhere down the line and have no idea how to throw anybody? I doubt it. @_@

    So no, once I get my Judo Blue Belt I'm not gonna walk out into a comp and throw someone on their head. But I would be able to tell someone who was good at throws how to. ^_-

    Take care,

    2009 was my big year - give up trad JJ, train more BJJ, enter BJJ comps for first time, work harder, work smarter, get BJJ feature stories published in mainstream MA mags. All this I have achieved.

    2010 - I doubt I'll match my highs of this year, but to sum: compete at the Euros, maintain my training regime, get a few more privates in, visit more academies and get more articles published, be considered for purple if I am good enough, still compete if I do reach purple and accept getting smashed.
    Just continue to enjoy BJJ as much as I already do.

    > Start Judo twice a week
    > Start entering some comps
    > Not find myself taken into side control so often
    > Core strength exercises
    > Hopefully be good enough for a Blue at the next grading!

    Non BJJ: Complete my final RIBA exam and get to call myself a chartered architect!! 8 years in the making so I'll be ecstatic.

    BJJ: Two words...physical conditioning, I'm ******* sick of being well over 100Kg. Easilty the biggest hurdle I have.
