Sparring Book for Fighters
Way back when I used to compete in Judo, my coach made us keep a notepad with us, and after every fight, write down what we did well, and what we did poorly. He said our fights were too valuable to leave behind, so we should write them down to reflect on them later.
I felt like that book helped me get twice the experience out of every fight I fought, and being forced to write down what I did poorly taught me a lot of lessons that might have been lost otherwise.
Now, fast forward to today, where we all cary around the internet in our pockets, and we can record and share video easily... so I decided to make an updated version of my old sparring book. It's a website where you can log all your fights, link to videos on youtube, etc. It's basically just a modern version of that old pen-and-paper book.
The website is http://www.sparringbook.com/
It's free, and will stay that way forever. I use it myself, and I'm offering it to the fighting community as my attempt to give something back. For the sake of providing examples, I have made my own fights public, but this sort of thing is usually best when it's for your eyes only, so by default everything is private.
If you have any comments/suggestions on how I can make it better, let me know. The point is to make it a tool to get the most out of your fights.
For some reason, your judges at the black belt test reminded me a bit of a tv commercial casting panel.
Haha. Yea, I could totally see that. Fortunately the guys judging my test were much nicer.
