    Passed my first Judo grading Wednesday night :) Practical side was fun, Tai otoshi, O goshi, Osoto gari, then three throws with freedom to choose. (Got ippon seoi nage'd by one of the other guys grading, brilliant pressure test of your breakfall!)

    Theory stuff was challenging. My terminology was okay from Jiu Jitsu, but my knowledge of the history of Judo is shaky. Something to work on there.

    Great randori to end the session. Still getting used to the ruleset, but it's always good fun!

    Hopefully competing somewhere in the new year, really looking forward to that.

    Nice work, if you have the official BJA grading book, pretty much all the "theory" questions are covered in it!

    I was always surprised by how cheap judo gradings were, mine were 7.50 each IIRC!

    Oooh. I'll have to grab one of those books! They're £20 now, none of which goes to the club, so can't complain. No judo over Christmas though! :'(

    There's nothing wrong with a club having an income stream that keeps it going!

    Grading two done. Was a little surprised, I've been inconsistent with training lately. Struggled a bit on throw names, so plenty to work on, but I am now allowed to wear a pretty 5th kyu belt. Happy days!

    Not to worry. IMS, it's in Yerkow's 3rd volume of "Modern Judo."

    Peace favor your sword,
