Some interesting views. Especially liked Lance's judoka "classification scheme". As I mentioned in my initial post, I am an experienced MAist returning to Judo after 20 years. I admit that I probably fall into your aggressive (bull terrier) category at the moment, but thats not to say with continued training I'd like to aspire to stalker/assertive (in a Judo sense only though, please!). Hopefully it'll come with experience.
