    Hey thanks for that stuff. Moura is very interesting.

    Oh dude I forgot you weren't on the mailing list. Wednesday's practice was cancelled due to the weather, none of the coaches could make it. We have practice tonight (attendance might be light though) and the next one is Monday.

    They both shrink in the wash. In my experience, the pants don't shrink quite as much. It'll become a bit less starchy after you wash it.

    I generally change there, yes. Convenient. A lot of people just wear athletic shorts under their pants so they can change by the side of the mat.

    The Judo club usually does 40-60 minutes of groundfighting - probably 4/5 times or more. Often it is all groundfighting.

    We have 3 different coaches and approaches to warmup. The head coach favors using a brief jog then newaza to warmup. The technical coach uses "Judo" warmups like mat pulls, breakfalls, shrimping, etc. The competition coach will sometimes put us through the wringer with all kinds of exercises. Thankfully it usually is fairly short compared to most other clubs I've seen.

    I think shrinking down a size 5 would work pretty well. Put it in the dryer on high heat the first time you wash it (this is the only time you should do this). After 15 min, take it out every few minutes and try it on. When it's a little too big, stop drying it and hang dry. It'll shrink a little more over time. Or, get a size 4 and never machine dry it or wash on high heat.

    As for a belt, the head coach has a bunch - usually members give their old belt to the club when promoted.

    I'm actually thinking of doing both Judo and Shuai Chiao both in spring quarter. Of course they don't have any ground fighting, which is a let-down - and I hear they spend a lot of time doing warmups and exercises of the traditional gungfu variety, while I feel that conditioning is best left to the student's spare time.

    Anyway, I'm rambling. Show up soon, bring your friend. Let me know ahead of time and I'll make sure to let the coaches know to not plan anything crazy for that day.

    We have alternating weeks of more traditional Judo and competition or ground-oriented Judo by the way - this week it's been more informal. It's a fun balance.

    You should tell your friend to come check us out and the Shuai Chiao club too. We're on alternating days so it won't hurt him to look at both. They're a pretty cool club and one of the few legit places in the US to train. I messed around with the class a while back and it was interesting.

    If you wash your gi in warm or cold water (+bleach when needed) and never dry on high heat it shouldn't shrink tons. Mine are roomy at first and then after a couple washes fit pretty well. I'm a tad over 5'7" and weigh ~195 lbs, and I wear a size 5 comfortably.

    We have lots of beginners this quarter, which is part of why we're focusing on basics. Some have some experience in wrestling/BJJ, but they're all new to Judo. Your friend is welcome too and won't be out of place.

    The double weave for 89$ is a reasonable price. I think that's around what I paid for it.

    Glad to hear you're making it in. We're working on basics for the next month or two anyway, so it's a good time for it.

    They meet up Monday / Wednesday / Friday 6-8:00 PM, Sunday 12-2. I'll be in on Wednesday, assuming my knee doesn't twinge up again.
