    No date as yet. Mid to late August is best for me. First week is bad.

    If you can find someone who wants to spar under MMA rules with you then go for it.

    I only ask because i am relatively unskilled and less rules equates to less issues of contention. So far i only see you , Cullion and I who have agreed to go.

    I don't think there's any need to arrange sparring matches before hand just turn up bring your kit and see what people want to do on the day. They'll be people who want to do just striking, others who just want to do groundwork, others who will do the gamut.

    Cullion and I have only arranged something because of our sparring match/informal gong sau.

    Obviously if anybody wants to do Judo, I'm always up for that.

    Also if any UK bullies want me to teach anything Judo related or help them with any aspects of their Judo I'm happy to do that as well.

    As i said earlier, i am taking up Judo on the recommedation of my Jiu Jitsu Instructor because im not getting enough time to work on my throws. I have issues with my frame, so id be happy just to watch you and pick up as much as i can. Im looking to start up at Waterloo Judo Club in Liverpool on monday.

    Date not agreed yet but it definitely won't be the last weekend because that's my wedding anniversary.

    MMA sparring is fine. I wouldn't be much use for you as a sparring partner for that I'm afraid. I don't have much BJJ or submission experience yet and I'm not used to knees and elbows.

    I like Judoka's suggestion of just sorting it out on the day. We all have different styles and training requirements so im sure we can all compromise.

    From past experience of 2 throwdowns, most people who turn up seem primarily interested in groundwork.

    Sorry, missed that first time round.

    I'm afraid I don't know anything about Waterloo, but from checking their website they have a 6th dan who's a regional technical director there, so they can't be too shabby. My knowledge of northern Judo clubs runs out at Urmston in Manchester.

    I appreciate you checking it out. I'll have to just see how it goes, looks promising though.

    judoka_uk, if you want you can settle this bet with some kind of padded MMA glove or an ungloved pushing hands round without striking. I have no interest in trying to game this by completely taking away your ability to grip with your fingers. Still no gi though (for the bet, anyway), tah.

    tbh I think the lack of gi makes a bigger difference than what you can do with your fingers, but it's up to you.
