    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    N.B. Although I appreciate the helpful comments, my problems with this grip are intermittent and mainly to do with getting used to the structure of the collar/lapel on the Judogi vs the SJ jacket. My biggest personal frustration with the Judo grip-fighting is the quality of grip that the gi allows on the elbow and (especially) wrist. :sad:

    I tried the cable machine seoinage thing... meh. We did that belt exercise in SJ class, also the weird cast concrete kettlebells and the weight-at-the-end-of-a-pole. Good stuff. :thumbsup:

    We hang an old jacket from the ceiling and do pullups on it. Also, for those who can't do so many pullups, try hanging for time. One of the Judo BBs at Alliance recommends using an old belt as a handle for dumbbell exercises too.

    Barring moar training?

    Rock climbing works pretty well, especially if you aren't good at it (like me).

    Also as JR said, pullups with gi, belts on weights are excellent ways to improve grip strength.

    Unless you're talking about keeping a tight grip on a resisting partner (grip fighting, kumikata) then again, moar training.

    ^^^This. I do stuff for grip strength, but I've sort of made it my goal for the next couple of months to focus on not being sloppy and loose with my gripping.

    Solo drills for gripfighting? I personally don't know of any.

    Masterclass book by Neil Adams on Grips is an excellent resource for gripfighting.

    If you want to spend quite a bit of money there are grip fighting dvds. They are pretty damn expensive, but I hear are top quality. PM for details.

    Yes a little bit. In uki otoshi, we spin off/pivot to the side and allow uke to fall through. In judo, it's straight back, in DZRJJ there is a pivot. Same result, different application.

    Is DRJJ's version really opposite the Kodokan? I would be surprised and interested if so.
