I just started doing Judo back in the fall. It's a great workout and I've learned alot, but I competed in my first tournament yesterday and it was quite an eye opener. I've 'randori'd' alot every class, which is basically free sparring, but competition fighting is a whole 'nother world. It was combat! There is nothing 'gentle' about it, but I loved it. I have a few tender spots on my head and legs, but had a great time and can't wait for the next. Any Judo players out there? If so what kind of physical conditioning do you recommend to prepare for matches?
Thanks!

Do you condition at the beginning of judo practice? We always did. I can remember elbow crawls/drags on prone and back, head bridging, judo pushups ( basically yoga pushup ), duckwalks, etc before doing anything.

Yes, we do all of the above. I was wondering on extra workouts for conditioning

Throws and more throws
when I was competing in college, we did the "bronco line" (went to western mich univ, the broncos) that is where you line up and go down the line and throw, get to the end wait get thrown and repeat.
In randori you can have multiple opponents, throw one, grip up with another immediately after and throw for 5 mins.
At my bjj school we did man stays in until thrown, this was a great drill, lots o people liked it, that is where one person stays in until beaten or thrown.
Competition is a real eye opener, did some of the oppenents go for a leg sweep and kick you? That one is the norm for comps.
Some conditioning that we did were stair runs, rope climbs, sprints and throws.
In comp I used to visualize or write down my gameplan: 1. Uchimata
2. Drop knee seonage
3. Newiwaza (grndwork I can't spell)
Find some throws you are really good at, work on them and work the throws with grip variations.

Thanks guys, especially Mike..great info on those drills. Yes during the comp everyone had their warface on and leg sweeps often became kicks, I'm guessing because everyone is jacked up on adrenaline. Funny you mentioned those two throws: I used a drop knee seo to win one match and was beaten in another with a huge uchi mata.
