In a couple weeks I'll be attending and competing in my first Judo tournament. I'm a white belt with literally only a couple months experience and a handful of techniques. Its mainly for experience and certainly not going to beat myself up if I lose, but I hate fear of the unknown as I'm not totally sure what to expect. I mean, what bit of randori I've done (with yellow and green belts mostly) has been trying to fend off some pretty standard throws, no huge surprises, and its been explorative and cooperative to some degree (don't fight the throw too much if they really have it on you etc). I know competition is a different beast. I anticipate a lot more fighting for position while standing, fighting to get a grip and keep it, fighting to not have my grip used to move me and compromise my balance. I anticipate getting worn out more, and need to try and do some cardio over the next 2 weeks for what its worth. Wing Tsun, which I have done to an intermediate level, while being primarily a striking art, has taught me to be sensitive to force of others and not fight against it even though I am a big guy with decent strength. So I am thinking one of my focuses will be making it harder to get a reaction from me to setup a throw. I know enough to keep a wide enough base, don't cross my feet, keep feet in contact with mat when moving. What I don't know how to prepare for are guys in my weight class (I'm in the 220+) that are measurably bigger than me and are going to be really hard to deal with in terms of strength. That is kind of rambling, but any thoughts?
