Thought I'd update the thread. Two weeks ago I got my black belt. Had been an ikkyu for nearly four years. Worried I'd be one of those perpetual brown belts.
Congrats mate - great achievement. I haven't been back to Judo since I got mine in August (been super busy with new baby and new job) but found a couple of schools closer to home I am gonna check this month. Looking forward to getting my bum kicked all over again.
Are you still competing regularly?
RIP Cam - you will be sorely missed
Congrats, Telerion. That's great to hear.
I've been training for about a year now, but with my rate of progression I'm more worried about being a perpetual green belt.

That seoi nage was pretty sick.....
Satoshi Ishii is registered for the US Senior National Championships next weekend in VA Beach. I know a few people from my club are making the drive down. Unfortunately, I'll be skipping this one.
You should go. As lazy a sack of sh*t that ishii is in mma, his talent in judo is undeniable
