    Here's a sample from three separate nights. I'm the bald guy.

    As a yellow belt you look a lot better than that brown belt who seems to only be able to attempt makikomi on a white belt.

    Loads of people in those videos are wearing the wrong belt. I'm a green belt, but I left mine at home that day. One of the white belts is a blue, but also forgot his. (I got into the spare kit locker first and nabbed the higher belt.) The brown belt is supposedly a second dan, his mum posted over the wrong kit from France. I agree he spams the makkikomi too much, but it's not really my place to say it to him.

    Some of the white belts there speak Russian as a first language and have wrestling experience, but we have no wrestling club.

    OK, makes more sense you are a sankyu not a rokkyu/gokkyu.

    He's a nidan? From France? Maybe he was just fooling around.

    And of course you don't need to say anything to him, wasn't suggesting you do. I'm a sandan so I can be snarky, LOL!

    I've actually been at this since 2007... I think. In 2011 I smashed up my shoulder pretty bad, and it never really healed properly, which meant that I had to switch to southpaw and change a lot of the way I fight. Also in those videos I was trying out hiza guruma which isn't a throw I normally use. Thought I probably don't look much better when I'm trying to use my A game.

    In my experience the main outcome of videoing randori is that it makes you realise you aren't quite as good as you thought you were.

    I realize that so very very often as it is.
