    That sounds like a pretty good idea. From now on, I'll take detailed notes of my judo classes. It will be fun to watch my progression from that perspective.

    NSLightsOut,
    I am surprised that it didn't work for you. When I used to do Xing Yi, I found that if I had to think about the move in a way that I usually didn't (like writing it down), I developed a greater understanding of it. But maybe your learning style theory is valid too.

    sound like a good idea in theory, but I can tell you 1 reason why I shouldn't kep a journal:

    I'll loose it and wind up wasting $5 on a journal

    My notes would end up looking like this:

    Arm Bar:

    The thing where you grab his arm and pull.

    Omoplata: The thing where you grab his arm and twist.

    Kimura: The thing where you grab his arm, do some wierd ****, and it hurts him.

    That's better than my training journal in the BBC which when it comes to bjj is more stream of conciousness rambling about how I did rather than what I did.

    The reason note taking works is when the other see you with a little notepad thay are more inclined to want to beat you up and you must fight harder to survive.

    To echo the great Frank Dux:
    MA are for fighters, not for people that write journals.

    Exactly. It would be pretty sad to see someone just sitting there during classtime writing notes.

    No one does that.

    But immediately after class, I either grab a pad of paper or get to my computer and write down everything I learned that day: Slips, submissions, appraisal of my sparring performance, areas that need to be worked on, etc.

    It's ok if you take notes.
    Some kids learn to ride a bike with training wheels; it's really nothing to be ashamed of..

    I didn't learn how to ride a bike until I was in the 5th grade. :(
