Saturday Randori

by Jinryu

Just got back from judo a few hours ago. On weekends, the class is much more relaxed, because there’s no particular agenda. You just work on whatever you want with whoever you want. I was really lucky today because I got to work for a good half an hour with the instructor, and I learned quite a bit. I hope when I’m in my sixties like him I will still be kicking that much ass without a sweat.

I am having a lot of trouble performing throws from standing… It just seems like I’m not learning as fast as I’d want to. I’m doing much better on ground work though. i think its mostly that all my previous kickboxing experience is really interfering with me developing the proper reflexes for standup judo. It’s really pissing me off.
