Online Japanese News Network for the Deaf  
For exercises on comprehension/receptive skills, I often visit this Youtube channel: DNN (Deaf News Network). They're apparently a non-profit online deaf news network that disseminate information relevant to the deaf. At my current comprehension skill level, I often can only get the gist of what they're signing about and sometimes I cannot even manage this. At times like this, the only thing that gives me any idea of what they're signing about is the bit of information they've written on the white board.

It really is a good exercise for comprehending JSL in a more information-dense setting and acclimates your mind to what "natural" JSL should look like (as opposed to the word-by-word progression in a classroom setting, for instance).
