    Judo Tournament results: I was 30lbs lighter and was the lowest ranked person there.

    Annnnnnnddddd I still got 2nd place out of 5. I got 3 of the 4 matches including the one I lost.


    Round 1:



    Round 2:



    round 3:



    I messed up the gi choke because when I saw the guy's eyes roll back into his head I loosened up and he just spun. So I let him keep spinning and choked the life out of him. I don't think I'll step up 30lbs again. That was too difficult.

      Big deal, so you finished in what... the top 40%? That's barely the upper half. Come back when you have something worth bragging about.

      Kidding, kidding. Congrats man, 2nd place when fighting against the odds is definitely something to be proud of. Keep up the good work, and keep bringing the vids. We Bullshidoka of all people should be keeping video records of our badassedness.

              No, Omega is his SAMBO coach.

                nicely done :)

                don't ease up on the choke just because his eyes roll back lol if he doesn't tap and the ref doesn't call mate, just choke his ass out.

                i eased up on a choke once when the guy started gurgling. he rolled into me and i lost the choke, and later the match.

                  Immamura Sensei from the Fresno Judo Club. He's a 9th Dan. Omega teaches me SAMBO and kung fu.

                  Please tell me your thoughts. So far as I understand it, I just wasn't quick enough on the draw. That was my first match and I didn't get to warm up, every time I saw a chance to counter, I didn't, despite my ability to do so. My brain said, "GO!" and my body was like, "Oh, I'm sorry, what?". Bad posture and bad timing. I tried to muscle the guy, but probably a bad idea since he outweighed me by 30lbs. Anything else?

                  It's cool, on the second attempt, I was like, "NO. You will go out now."

                    Makes sense because they're doing a good Judo transforming you from Asian ladyboy to a Judoka.

                    Bad posture is pretty much it. You allowed him to pull your head down and break your posture, which against a taller and heavier opponent means that its not a question of if you're going to be thrown, but when. Even for great Judo players, see Koga vs Ogawa.

                    So that domineering grip and breaking of your posture meant you couldn't attack and he was able to get that Russian grip and throw you.

                    I'm sure Imamura sensei will be able to show you all the fine details of how to stop that happening, but the basics are to keep mobile, shoulder roll to escape the grip, get upright and break the grip off.

                    I thought for a green belt/ 3rd kyu (?) you did pretty well considering the weight difference. Your Sasae was nice and your newaza was aggressive, but in a controlled way.

                    Try and quit the beginner habit of walking around with your hands out wide as if you're holding a giant beachball. You want your hands in close to your body to defend your jacket and try and take control of your opponent. Again Imamura sensei can show you all the specifics.

                        I'm a rokyu still. I haven't earned any ranking at all, not that I care much about it. I kept trying to stand up straight, but he was just too strong for me. I'll have to stay more mobile next time I fight up. because I always always always fight up.

                          Just stay healthy and keep training. You are getting excellent instruction in Judo and Sambo/kung fu.

                          Judoka_UK gave good pointers, I second them.

                          **Edit**
                          Regarding the warm up issue, you can't always count on tournament officials to let you know when to get ready. Have a warmup "plan" made up ahead of time, some routine that you always use. Make sure you are hot and sweaty when you step onto the mat, but not of course worn out. It takes a while and a lot of experience to be able to reach and control the right "arousal" level, but the sooner you start to try, the better.

                              Congrats, mate. I'll check the video's out and tease you appropriately when I'm not procrastinating in class and am instead procrastinating at home. ;)

                              I'm sure they just let you win, though. Felt sorry for you and all that.

                              i eased up on a choke once when the guy started gurgling. he rolled into me and i lost the choke, and later the match.
                              I had an armbar in a match at Panpacs. It was full on, she had pain on her face and then her elbow clicked. She didn't tap, I assumed I'd missed it or she enjoyed having her elbow hyperextended. I loosend up and she passed and took side control.
                              I lost, but was slightly consoled by the fact that she couldn't use her arm for the rest of the comp.
