    Sounds like you have a great club to train at - sharing the Matt with the likes of craig falon!

    There definitely is something special about Judo and I agree about how strong it can make you. When I first tried judo I literally had trouble walking up / down stairs the next day my whole body trunk I ached like hell more then any other MA including muay thai classes where you drill kicks until you can no longer lift your leg again.

    I love Randori - this is what makes judo special for me, everyone has a good proper scrap and you get to apply yourself.

    Ive been invited to a Wednesday night Randoori sesson at the Wolverhampton uni (walsall campus) Judo centre. Im defo going next week. Apparently they have upto 60 players on the mat on a regular basis. How awesome will that be!!

    Sounds awesome Steve! Reading this thread is making me pine for judo again (even though it's only been three week's). I can't wait to get my fingers taped up and the old thick weave GI on again.

    Judo really is ichi ban number one!

    I cannot STRESS enough how IMPORTANT Judo is to any BJJer and I can highly recommend any of the Erdington Judo squad and HIGHLY recommend North Birmingham Judo club!

    started judo this week with a view to competing..

    this had been my new years resolution..and it took me until now to get into it.

    I have went three times in the last week and i have really enjoyed it..

    a nice warm up..some technique..6x4mins randori..3x4mins newaza..
    plenty of rough and tumble..magic

    in a light hearted manner..The rule changes is abit of a pain in the ass and servely penalises wrestling techniques..bring back leg attacks!!

    This is the main reason why I have chose not to train Judo as an individual art. It's slowly become a bastardized version of it was supposed to be.

    understand ur point of view..hopefully these rules will be ammended after a short time..bring back 'Ugly Judo'

    but heres the thing..im trying to learn new techniques from a variety of arts and become a ''well round grappler''..competing in the 'pure sports'with the view to subbing opponents s quickly as possible in a nogi competition and eventually make the tranition to a gi comp..(but i am finding going back to being a complete beginner difficult and learning the grips in judo is trying)

    if that makes sense..

    Yeah there's still loads to learn even from doing the watered down version of Judo. I still annoys me though.
