Judo competition is like sex. Your first time is awkward and over far too quickly but once you've had it once you can't get enough.
My club tournament was today. I took third, out of three. I played Will fantastic ex-collegiate wrestler. I lost to him by pin. I then played Sensei Mike, a black-belt. I lost to him by throw but I can definitely say they were both fantastic matches. Sensei Mike got "Throw of the Day" for his match against me, and I got "Projectile of the Day" for my match with him. Not a bad deal.
All in all the tournament was fantastic and I'm now looking to next year and my next tournament.
And the hits just keep on comin'.....
