Thinking about getting one. Attended a Judo class and the instructor says I should give competing a go. I told her I wouldn't mind but if I did I really wouldn't want to be submitting people. It would just be a fruitless victory. She says I probably have enough judo to run through the ranks quickly enough to where it will be competitive. As for the class itself, I rather enjoyed it. It was waaaay more lax than any other judo club I've been too. Still strict but not as big on ridiculous speed repetition. The pace was slow enough where I picked up one or two things. Some of you may remember I was training at a uni club previously. Whilst I enjoyed the energy and pace, I didn't learn as much as whenever we were sparring everyone was going full ham because it was VERY competition orientated. So yeah, might compete in judo. Not sure yet though. Really liked the class and lactually learming a bit more.
