    EeeexXXXecution!!! Its really hard to avoid being tentative in your first match, but moose is right: get your grip and go for it!
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    At some point during one of my matches on Saturday (I suspect the abrupt end to #3, although there are other possibilities), I was concussed. I'm still showing symptoms as I type this.

    I'm trying to figure out my next move (that is, after "wait for symptoms to clear").

    A bit of the discussion wound up in my competition footage thread - I asked the mods to move it back over here, but barring that:

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    Thank you.

    My current plan of action is as follows:
    1) Wait for concussion symptoms to clear up
    2) Go through most of the protocol (no activity -> light activity -> vigorous activity)
    3) Find competent doctor and physiotherapist
    4) Get accurate diagnoses and rehab routines for serious injuries
    5) As permitted/indicated by said routines, resume resistance training and conditioning.

    After that, it gets a bit touchy. I want to keep playing, but given my history of concussions and the probability of accruing permanent damage (I can afford to lose a few IQ points, but not amnesia and depression), I can't put myself in a position where I'm likely to get concussed again. What this means:
    -if I get concussed again in shiai, no more shiai
    -if I get concussed in judo training (hasn't happened thus far), I go back to BJJ
    -if I get concussed in BJJ, it's time to take up ballroom dancing

    And to avoid another concussion in shiai, there are a few obvious risk factors to be addressed:
    -weight/experience of opponents (third match was against a +100kg black belt)
    -my own skill (can I play aggressively enough to avoid stalling penalties without putting myself at risk)
    -my health (see #1 and #4)

    All that said, there are a few tournaments in March that I'd really like to be able to participate in - but only if I can do so without endangering my future.

    Not bad Russ there is still some hope left for you. Keep working hard.

    Don't worry about the concussion I have had a couple and still spweek smart.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.
