    You have no idea how awesome it makes me feel knowing that 20% of your posts are about me.
    Don't worry, I have not spoken to either of them in many years, and they would not remember me in any case. My (first) sensei has done Judo with Rodney, I believe, and competed against him at least once in Senior Nationals in the mid 80s. He always spoke highly of the two brothers and their father of course. I watched them compete other times in other national level tournaments. Both are superb technicians.

    So, you are in good hands, just make sure to take every advantage of the opportunity you have.

    Rodney or Randy can help you, make sure you work with them as much as possible.

    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.

    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.

    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.

Bad posture and bad timing. I tried to muscle the guy, but probably a bad idea since he outweighed me by 30lbs. Anything else?

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