Good evening Sherdog, I started training Judo about 8 months ago recently got my yellow belt. In two weeks I will be moving back to Africa for probably a year. Unfortunately, where I will be living there will be no Judo school or any other grappling for that matter. When I return from Africa I will go straight back to my Judo school as soon as I can, as I have really grown to like it. Can anybody here tell me (who has grappled) how quickly you lose the techniques if you don't train grappling for an extended time and how easy it is to pick them up again once you return. I know the question seems a little vague, but i'm sure someone who has been in a similar position will know what i'm talking about.
