    some advice for judo:

    1) slap mat.
    2) when you are flying through the air, try to compose yourself enough to look at the knot of your belt.
    3) slap mat!
    4) relax
    5) slap the damn mat!

    enjoy :)

    This. I know others have said it, but work on your falling and rolling. It can be boring, but it's the single most important thing you'll learn. And don't be a spaz.

    Don't let BJJ spoil you because the workouts are easier and you see results faster, judo is worth the time it takes to develop.

    As people mentioned, work on your breakfall/ukemi a ton and continue to work at it. It'll only help.

    Lastly consistency is key and especially for grappling imo. It's better to train consistently for years to come than blitzing it. A guy with polished skill in few go-to technique is better than a guy who knows dozens of techniques that they can do half-assed.

    Majority of us aren't gifted and even the gifted ones gotta put the sweat on the matt.

    Edit: oh and wear t-shirt or rashguard under the Gi like at all times...

    My instructor told the one guy who dared to wear one to take it off. He's not picky about gis, though.

    I wasn't allowed to wear one for my matches at the last comp I went to, no problem in class.
