    Don't worry about how you compare to others. There's some random luck involved when learning. That is, whether you happened to try something that works or not. Plus a strength difference is difficult to overcome as it means your technique has to be pretty much correct.

    On that note, your leg coordination/strength is not so good. Don't worry, most people favor upper or lower body, similar to left and right. When I started I was lower body and I looked like a tap dancer. My first coach advised a lot of full body exercises, whether it's complete throws, Olympic lifts, or whatever. You're trying to grip the guy down.

    What should I do to improve leg coordination? And should I try to improve that or just focus on grip fighting etc? Ive often thought weight lifting would benefit me, leg press etc

    It just takes time to build up the athleticism. Anything exercise/sport helps except those that work the muscles in isolation (like normal weight lifting, biking, etc.)

    A good analogy is to ask a Judo master to perform throws with the opposite grip. No matter how well he may know the technique and perform it textbook, it's just not going to be as good and powerful as his good side. Technique is really developed, not learned.

    Gentlemen, Id like to ask you for your cooperation in this campaign, I am running.
    The objective is to provide free second hand judogis to kids with no access or possibility to have ones.
    Ever since I visited a few countries in the world, where little kids were training with hand made judogis and frequently leaving the sport, because of lack of judogis, I have thought of helping them with some kind of a social program.
    Here is a chance to give your old judogi a new life and purpose:
    http://yagadome.com/kids-programs/

    EDIT:
    This program is obviously based in Japan, where I have been promised the support of several elementary and high schools, for donations to one of my gyms in Osaka, from where I will send the judogis to gyms in Bulgaria, Brazil and any other country, in need of support.
    In case you would want to help this project in your home country, Id love to coordinate with local gyms and similar minded individuals for deliveries of old judogis directly to the gyms, where they are needed or a centre, from where we can send them to places, where underprivileged kids or orphans could find FREE use of them.

    and the stupid ass leg grab returns, Khubetsov should have known about the 3 shido rule, as he was on his second, and that a leg grab (which he unfortunately did) resulted in a shido too, but it is so bs. I wish they would add a rule that allows some techniques required to leg grab. Like this:

    What do you guys think of kata? Waste of time or is it valuable?

    Anyway I ended up joining a second judo club because I was so frustrated with my lack of progress and I started weight training. But one thing that is frustrating is the instructors at both clubs seem to emphasis learning a bunch of different throws rather than learning one or two.

    It depends what you call kata. Something like nage-no-kata does not have much practical value to me. On the other hand something like shadow uchikomi below that I can practice on my own is highly useful to master footwork.

    Going to my dojo in a few minutes :)

    I'm thinking about doing kata as well. I think that might help me understand what I need to do but I'm not sure how the actual kata training is.

    I think this is often a good thing. Learning about more throws will give you more to choose from, when you're developing your style. As opposed to just bashing out something like o soto gari and uchi mata, which may not suit your body type.

    kata helps you learn the art.

    learning throws helps you figure out what works for you.

    hitting throws in randori helps you learn the sport.

    We use it with new comers to get them used to being thrown. Getting them to relax and be good partner helps break the fear particularly in adults. Other than that it's only ever trained before national gradings as you need it here to advance belts even after winning matches. Other than that we don't really train it. Personally I'm not a big fan of focusing to much on it, seems like a poor use of mat time.

    I think this would be counted as osaecomi, no need to do anything else. Here is another cool option:


    And choke. This is well known technique; they make two important points: left knee blocking the elbow, and pressure on the back to lock the arm.

    I would happily just hold uke in place. It is difficult to do anything with both of your legs trapped and in an uncomfortable position on the upper body. I will give it a try this week sometime
