Start October by returning to judo!

The fall has started, school is back in session and judo practice needs you!

If you have been thinking about coming back to judo, or just thinking about starting judo for the first time, now is that time.
Come and see us and get in shape.

Labor Day: no practice

Just a reminder that the community center is closed for Labor day so no practice today. We will be back on the mat on Wednesday.

James Weed at Newborn Jiu Jitsu Spokane has been kind enough to allow us to come to his club for a workout tonight at 6:30. This is a great opportunity to work on your mat work!

National Night Out Against Crime

On 8/21 the East Central Community Center put on a National Night out against Crime. This event highlighted all of the services offerred by the center. As part of the event, the Judo club demonstrated a bit of judo.

The few, the proud, the dedicated!

Good job Aleksi!

Last weekend Aleksi and Sensei Cheyenne went to the monthly tournament at Portland Judo. Both did quite well, Aleksi took 1st in the brown belt division and 2nd in the black belt division. Sensei Cheyenne won both her matches.
Here is some video from Aleksi. Notice the superlative technique he has developed while at Spokane Judo.

Correction to Monday night Judo

On Monday we went over a variation of Seoi nage not seoi otoshi.
Thanks to Sensei Cheyenne for pointing this out.

Congratulations on their Promotions

  • Ikkyu:

    • Aleksi Lee
  • Sankyu:

    • Cassidy Freeman

Promoting people for hardwork and excellence is my favorite part of judo!
(And leave it to Aleksi to uphold the fine tradition of skipping practice immediately after being promoted).

Nage No Kata

Here is an instructional video of Nage No Kata.
We are going to keep working on this over the summer.
