    Joined the forum a bit ago but been reading for probably two-odd years

    Trained kudo/daidojuku - green belt (4th Kyu) was due to grade for 3rd Kyu when i stopped training
    (kudo is japanese mma in the gi with headgear, one round, max 2x30seconds on the ground - exhibition match: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nKhI...eature=related)

    So have done some newaza and for me that was the most interesting bit, so after a bit of an employment hiccup i left my old club and joined Ze Marcello/BTT in MK in December - MASSIVE difference in quality both in the instruction and sparring partners

    (Like a lot of previous posters, i went in thinking i was probably of blue belt level being a 3rd/4th Kyu and having trained for best part of two years - got hammered by everyone, including a white belt who had been there for only a few months. Reality check.)

    I had previously been taught a lot of the same stuff and it all seemed fine&dandy, but the little details i'm learning now actually are making these techniques work for me, all the finer details and grips etc

    REALLY enjoying it!

    Hey Jasmos,It's great to have you here and i'm really pleased you've started BJJ.You will find as you get more experienced in BJJ that the techniques you learnt in Kudo will stay in your muscle memory and you will be able to apply them alongside the BJJ you are learning,especially if you learn how to keep dominant position before trying to apply any submissions.

    I did kinda twig who you were during the briefing prior to the comp, I think you were asked a few questions during the referee workshop at the start and I wondered "Hmmmmm is that Rob from the forum" but decided against some kind of weirdo stalker introduction haha :-)

    I am doing the next one in feb, i'll be sure to say hello next time! must say I find the hereford events to be really well run and certainly seem to be an excellent introduction to competition BJJ... the guys in my weight category (the under 82KG) certainly opened my eyes to what a good standard competition white belt should be like that's for sure!!!(I'm training every day for the next one!)
