    To find a decent and well run self defence oriented place to train that doesn't want to strangle my balls with lengthy/favours the owners contracts , and mandatory merchandise purchases.

    Not getting injured would be a start so I can train more often.

    1. Win a shiai.
    2. Go up to sankyu.
    3. Start cross training in BJJ again.

    edit: 4. Be able to hit throws on that shodan at my club on a more consistent basis. So far I've gotten him twice ever. I want to make that twice per randori.

    Goals in order:

    1. Compete and win one more time as a purple belt
    2. Get my brown belt
    3. Focus on passing, TDs, and leg locks
    4. Get weight down a bit and compete one more time in Judo
    5. Keep cross training MMA at least 1x per week

    My (most likely) last purple belt tournament is in late February, I won 2 or 3 tournaments in a row before losing in the finals last time and I'd like to go out on a win. I think I'll likely get my brown belt shortly thereafter unless I have a god awful performance. I spent most of purple working on my guard which has gotten fairly decent, now it's time to double down on my top game, especially pressure passing and leg locking (which is a big deficiency in my game). I'd like to fight once more in Judo mostly to see if I enjoy Masters Judo competition, and I'm really liking MMA training and have vague dreams of fighting ammy some day. If I have time, an ancillary goal would be to add one pure boxing training session a week because boxing is the BJJ of the standup world.

    No. Point Karate is the Judo analogue of the standup world. Very popular outside the the US with a weird rule set that makes it increasingly less fight applicable, and only a few people use it with any success in MMA.

    Be a better role model for my kids (students). I've been good at showing them how to be champs on the mats, but my life off the mats hasn't exactly been a good example for them to follow. Some of them really, really look up to me, and it made me realize I need to get my shit together.

    That's my goal: to grow and evolve from "instructor" to "role model".

    Achievement Goals:

    Compete at least once every month, or every two months at most, in at least one style ( MMA, Muay Thai or BJJ ).

    Want to place in the IBJJF New York Open this time around, or at least one high scale IBJJF tournament.

    Get my purple belt (very end of the year or early next at best, but prolly longer lol).

    Win an amateur MMA title.



    From a training stand point:



    Improve my guard breaking/passing abilities

    Improve leg lock defenses

    Improve finishes from Mount

    Almost the exact same as mine. How much do you pay for judo and what is bjj around there? Bjj is so expensive where I am. Sent an email to a gym the other day and it is 150 a month and the guy is only a brown belt according to his website.

    Keep rehabbing my neck and shoulders.

    Talk to my coaches and if they agree that I'm healthy enough, start competing again.

    Lose 15 lbs to get back to my comp weight.
