Which martial art are you studying? Is it your first one?
Judo! And yes, this is my first one.
Excellent! I train very irregularly in Judo, and I rate it pretty highly. Sanshou is my primary art, but Judo's comprehensive clinch throws (in the gi, at least) are unparalleled in other disciplines. Best of luck, and happy training!
Thanks! You as well. I'm a fan of shifting center of mass over brute force, so I was looking forward to it.
