Postponing Summer Swimming

Just a note that we are postponing the swimming party originally scheduled for this Saturday as the weather doesn’t look good (this is mostly intended to remind Sensei Oleg who seems unclear on the cancellation).
We may try for July 1 if that works for people.
Have a good weekend and see everyone at practice Monday.


Honored to Announce

I am truly honored to announce the promotions of Allen Monroe and Aleksi Lee. Their sustained hard work and dedication has earned them the rank of shodan. I wish I could say things are easier from now on but quite the opposite, we now expect more from them with regard to running the club and contributing to judo.
Their promotions were definitely deserved as they both exemplify what a shodan should be.

No practice on Memorial Day 5/30

Just a reminder that Monday is Memorial day. The community center is closed so we won’t be having practice. We will see everyone Wednesday June 1.


Good Luck to all our competitors

Just wanted to wish everyone who is competing the best of luck. All of you know enough judo to do very well.

If you aren’t competing, please come down and help out with the tournament or just cheer on those who are out on the mat.


Joint Practice with Pacific Judo

On Wednesday 5/25 Spokane Judo is hosting a joint practice with Pacific Judo to get in some last minute preparation for the tournament on Saturday. The practice will start at 5:30 for all kids. The kids practice will last until 6:45. After that we will have the adult practice. I hope everyone can attend this is a great opportunity to work with some new people and iron out any last minute competition issues.
The practice it at our usual location, 500 S. Stone (the East Central Community Center).
I hope everyone can make it!

Officer Yen!

This is not judo related but I thought it is worth recognizing the accomplishments of people in judo.


2016 Inland Empire Judo Classic

Tournaments don’t get any closer! This is here in Spokane and there is no better way to start the Memorial day weekend.
I encourage everyone to compete. We practice a lot, but this is the opportunity to see how much you have learned against other people.
