    Yes, it is a governing board which is fine and allows you to compete.

    Can anyone explain why my neck is so tense after Judo? I learned how to do breakfalls, two basic throws, a throw/sub combo, and 3 hold downs. Idk where my neck came into play.

    Because the head is surprisingly heavy and you've never used your neck before.

    Proud of you. Keep your eye on uchi mata and osoto gari tall guy.

    What Shark said. If you've never worked your traps before, they get very sore very quick. Also, you might have had someone practising kesa gatame (the scarf hold) on you? That will do it.

    Yes I believe one of the hold downs was kesa getame. And osoto gari was the throw giving me trouble because I'm just getting back in to shape for fighting and my legs need serious work.

    lol...reminds of this one time after class at my college judo club. A guy with some sort of aikido or jj background showed up and was asking a small group of us why we didn't use standing wristlocks during gripfighting in judo. I said because they don't work. He was all, derp, yes they do. So I grabbed his lapel with one hand and said go ahead, wristlock me. After about 30 seconds of standing there with him trying to wrench my grip off into a wristlock, I tripped him and slapped an armbar on him. I don't think he came back after that.

    There actually is a standing wristlock that can work in that situation, though, if the lapel grip is too low -- grabbing behind the elbow and collapsing the hand on your lapel against your chest. I know a BJJ blackbelt who's very fond of doing that to judoka. (This taught me to grab slightly higher, so that the attempt to collapse the wrist instead pushes it over the shoulder.)

    Very different, though, as it (1) doesn't involve peeling the hand off to get the wristlock, (2) uses multiple points of contact, and (3) is a quick and situational thing anyway.

    Jwilde88 you are a very lucky man to have found this site before you've been lied to and invested years in **** that doesn't work.

    Good luck with Judo mate.
