Just got home from my first ever Judo comp.
It was fun, have done BJJ before but haven't done a grappling comp for over 3 years.
Best bit of all was actaully the weigh in nominated for Under 70kg and step on tha scales at 67.6kg or about 148lbs. That down from 72.6 when i got back from the US 6 weeks ago.Zone is good.
Ended up with a gold in my weight class and silver in the Open against a girl who was 94kg/207lbs.
I took her down at least 4 times, back drop and ankle picks, but none of them scored???? she couldn't throw me,very......, very happy about that. But i lost by accumulated penlties. Oh well you live and learn.
I've only been doing Judo for about 3 weeks.... next time i may actually understand what the ref is talking about.

We had a team of 11 so there where was plenty of video shot, i have to get mine converted to DVD (i dont have the cabel) then i will try and post some.
Our team did realy well, 11 players and 13 medals some of the guys actually won matches by ipon throw, not bad for a bunch of "jiu jitsu guys"
