theres conditioning for ya. its true. learn to do it right or the pain continues. also, i like to play with the more experienced guys, i learn more for starters and i know that even though ill get thrown more at least ill get thrown right. sometimes letting a new person throw me i think im going to come down on my head.

You're right about the pain.
At first it hurt but as I fixed my technique it stopped hurting. However, every now and then I still screw up and end up hurting myself again. I just hope it gets to be more natural as I still have to think about it a bit.

I realized that my grappling sucks ass, so in an effort to suck less i am looking for something to train in. and this tuesday i am going in for my first judo class at an "open house" day to check out the place and trainers.
Also i will ask if anyone there teaches Russian style judo and weird grips FTW

Ok, update. I've now found out how much I suck at Ukemi haha! It turns out i have this little mental twitch or something wherein if I'm falling to my left side I always tend to screw up. Instructors told me to just keep practicing the left side falls until they match the right and just learn to relax (my biggest problem).
We've gone over some locks already but the classes' ukemi sucks as a whole so no throwing yet.
I've been trying to find some other source of training as well since we only meet once a week for this class and I might have found a guy who trains individually but there is like no Judo schools in the midwest! INsanity!

I am also a judo noob but on Monday night i got an hour and a half of one-on-one teaching from a 7th dan (previously ranked 2 in the world i believe) who needed a partner his own size as he is preparing for the world masters.
I learned so much. My normal coach is also awesome but i dont normally get him one-on-one.
This isn't that relevant to this thread but I was dying to tell someone.:XXsunsmil

I'm getting pretty awesome at Ukemi now! I've been spending 45min to an hour after class with the instructor just practicing my ukemi and the two standing locks we learned.
Hopefully he'll teach the class a throw soon :). I can't wait!

Ever find out who your coach is? It def isn't Bregman, Morris or Pedro. I don't know if Nick Gill moved to Phoenix but if this coach is a Silver medalist from Sydney as people have told you, it's got to be him. (unless he isn't North American)
Good training to you~
