Practice makes perfect - or at least closer to it

I've been noticing how much better I have become over the few short months that I've returned to Judo. I think that in the first few sessions I focused just on remembering the basics, while now I seem to have a good grip on the techniques I know, and I am constantly working to improve them with each subsequent session.

My Randori and Ne-Waza have also significantly improved to the point at which I think, given regular practicing schedule I will be ready to compete at the Comp in Feb. that I am considering. By ready, I mean I will be prepared to go up against people of similar rank and size, and win. My combinations seem to be working, and I am going Randori with a varied set of partners, so I have even more confidence in my abilities.

Somewhere, in the back of my mind, I am visualizing a medal around my neck.
