I had my first competition yesterday

I experienced my first competition yesterday, it was an interesting bur tiring experience. Unfortunately I was not happy with my performance, I won the first match through a disqualification due to leg grab, and then my second match I got held down and lost, and then in my third match I was disqualified myself for a leg grab (it was a follow up attack but the referees thought differently). I won't lie, it is pretty frustrating that I have been doing judo for several years and yet I was beaten by people doing it for a few months. I really want to improve but I need guidance in which areas to target but my coach didn't really give me any feedback. My little finger is quite swollen and stiff today so I think I will have to skip judo for a week until it recovers.

Drill the first 10 seconds of your match from rye to grips and first movement. Do that 20x or more. The rest will come natural after that.

20x? 20,000x is more like it.

Keep training hard and work on the areas that you felt let you down during the comp.
Get out and compete as soon as you can, the more you do it the better you'll get. Don't be discouraged at all.
