I would love to watch this one, but it is my son's first B'Day. I'd gladly root for Chile as my dad is Chilean (sort of). Maybe I will compete next year :) Hopefully I will qualify by then (Nikyu and up).

I'll be there to watch. IIRC, Velasco is originally from Peru, now settled in Florida (I think). Him and Lama are really good players.
My fiancee's cousin goes to the same high school Shintaro Higashi went to (Scarsdale) and was in the wrestling team with him. Got him (the cousin) to train in Judo and now he prefers it to wrestling!

Gonna be a hard sell to the Mrs. I think I need to have a candid talk with her about it. Since Saturday is our Sabbath, a lot of our errands happen on Sundays, and 4/3 is like 2-3 weeks before passover.

I know Ian went one time but I have no idea how he did. He trained in London for a year or two then he returned to Oishi. Hope our school has representatives for this one.
You got to do what you got to do, yonah. There will be other shiais.

His dad has a dojo on the upper westside, Riverside: Kokushi Budo Institute. I thought he competed at HVY, looks like he dropped to 90kgs.
Dude, I've been back to class since December, real tentatively at first, but now that my shoulder is doing a lot better (fingers crossed!) I'm trying to push myself more. Also, until last week or so, I just sucked majorly, everything's real rusty, things seem to be only coming together since the last 2 classes or so.
Yesah, I got engaged last year, no rush on the wedding though :)
Ryuchi left for Japan a few weeks ago, he was done with his art school and so packed up and left for home.

One of the first things i do every time i get into the internet is check out this forum. It's a very good site...besides the neverending discussion between judo and jiujitsu. I believe the better an athlete is, technically, the less he will be trying to minimize other sports.
P.D. Haven't practiced english since i left high school...here we speak spanish. B)
