    So no, I have no time. :/
    I didn't end up fighting either. Too much studying for some certifications I needed. Either way, you should try to make it out to the big one in April, which will be more in my neck of the woods. I've got a place for you to crash, if you need.

    4 weeks into Judo. Tough ****. A lot harder than Karate. I'm not learning very fast, but I'm still learning.

    I know Quinton, but not sure about the other person.

    Likewise.

    If you get time try to get to Pacific Dojo in Spokane they do have a very high level of judo and would be worth the trip.

    I used to stay at my folks' house in Spokane on E. Montgomery near the Greene St. Bridge. If I had known about Pacific back then and that it was so close, I could have started Judo a lot sooner.

    Quinton is the young black belt that was competing sr men -073 or -66 kg at the WA State Championships and the one before that same venue. My two guys fought him.

    Then a year later I got another shodan on another Martial Art. Wow, I wanted to brag and be proud, but kelp it to myself. You see, pride is something you lose after practice. Now I am too old to worry about it.
