little more competition experience, watch out!
Madison McArthur:  This was Madi’s 2nd tournament and she did awesome!  She also took 2nd and 3rd.  With a little more experience, she will also dominate!

Akio Yamada:  Akio placed 2nd!  He was again the youngest in his bracket, but he did awesome against the men, one who was 30 and beat at the buzzer!


Saturday Practice

The long awaited, much anticipated, never under estimated Saturday practice is back!
Because we have moved, we can now once again offer Saturday workouts.
We will start this Saturday from 9:00-11:00.
This practice is only rendori/drills, not much in the way of instruction.
Teenagers/adults only please.
We would love to have visitors from the other clubs, as long as you have an up-to-date judo registration, come on down!

Community Center closed on Monday (10/9

Just a reminder that the Community Center is closed on Monday 10/9 for the holiday formerly known as “columbus day”.
We will be back on Wednesday 10/11.
If you have been taking some time off Wednesday is the perfect day to come back and once again experience judo!
If you are thinking about starting judo, then Wednesday is the right day for that.
Basically, no matter what your involvement with judo, Wednesday is a great day to step it up a level.


Upcoming Events

Just wanted to update everyone on some upcoming judo events in the Northwest.
First, Portland Judo is hosting a clinic with Mike Swain, World Champion and 4 X Olympian on Friday 9/15. This is short notice, but he is an excellent instructor and well worth attending if you can. Info is here.

Second, on 9/23 Budokan will be holding their tournament. The entry form is here.

Third, on 9/30, there is a kata workshop for judges along with the 4th annual Pacific NW kata championship sponsored by Seattle Dojo. I don’t think we have anyone ready for this yet, but keep this type of event in mind as an option. Kata will definitely help all aspects of your judo.

Finally, on 10/7 the Rainier cup will be held in Lakewood, Wa. This is always a good tournament.
The entry form is here.
