    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.
