That's actually very funny. Thanks lindz. No hard feelings bout the premature offense?
I just got back from class and realized my revenge using throws will take a little longer than expected. Seriously, I am a fairly big, reasonably strong guy and I am so far from pulling off a decent throw. Tell me platitudes, even if they are lies. Please.

Platitudes... hmm, how about:
It will get worse before it gets better!
Does that help?

how about "first, you must learn to throw yourself" ?
edit: now i'm remembering the day i figured out how to do that. it hurt. i was such an asshole.

**** em. Judo is about being active and taking advantage of the situation your partner gives you. If he wants to bitch out and turtle up and stay still on the ground attack him. After a minute if it ain't working just stand up and go after him again. If he complains tell him to you are just working on getting better. If you're being a fucking spaz then bring it down a notch.
Most Judo clubs are a collection of whinny little bitches these days anyway. No one wants to do anything that is not in the Kodokan syllabus. I am just about finished with all of them.
It's randori and not shai. If the object is just throwing for that day then I could understand but if not then its full on randori.Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

He wants to play ref rules? Then let him play like he wants. Stand up after 10-20 seconds. If I stick on someone's butt for 5 minutes trying to slip in a choke while it obviously doesn't work then I'm an asshole and stealing practice time from both of us.
That being said, if you want to do judo for judo, starting back after nothing happens for some time is actually a good idea. Often I'll get the back of someone, go for a juji roll or a choke and it doesn't work, I'll just let go and start over. It'll get you into the faster-paced, more explosive ground game of judo. Not saying BJJ antics won't work or aren't worth learning/practicing, but different rules call for different strategy.
If you want to improve your sweeping game or whatever then practice with someone else. If you want to crack turtles within the rules then going with this guy actually looks pretty nice, as long as he respects the invisible ref himself and lets go if **** doesn't progress.
BTW : try some turnovers into pins instead of chokes for turtle cracking.

Put that in your jiu-jitsu and smoke it.
Also, as GURL as it sounds, try to be a more sensitive training partner. As in empathetic. You guys clearly aren't communicating well, how can you possibly expect to cooperate and make each other any better?
