Success & Sacrifice in Judo

By Mark Lonsdale, Judo Training Development 

In sports, as with most things in life, there are no great successes without sacrifice. You can sit on the couch and watch a fight on TV, or you can go to the dojo and train to be a fighter. You can wish you weighed less and were in better shape, or you can get on a training program and make that wish a reality. If your goal is to be a national or international judo champion, be prepared for years of hard training, long periods away from loved ones, sports injuries, and a constant struggle to come up with the finances to travel, train, and compete.
