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.

PROOF that I'm not a completely useless poster:

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.
