Hear, hear!

I've just started doing some judo training and I find that, although I fall rather more often than I throw in randori, I look forward to it more than any other training I've done. The mental game of tactics and reflex is so fun and energizing. And when I do finally get a throw to work it's such a rush

Heh, it always feels like the mats are as hard as cement at the beginning of practice, but during randori it feels soft as a pillow.
