Put on a bit of weight- (solid ripped mass of course)
Get through at least 3 month without getting injured and avoid hospital
Win a comp?
Try not to get owned by my gf on the mats as well as at home???????
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.
oh and take up judo, thanks for the reminder
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. ^_-

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.
> Train more than 3 times a week in BJJ
> 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.
