Obukan Tournament Results

Chris and Ben Mitchell competed this weekend in Portland. Both of them did very well. Chris took 1st in the Masters division. In addition, Allen Monroe worked refereeing the tournament. All of them definitely made the rest of us at Spokane Judo look extremely good.

Thanks to the generous people at Columbia Dojo, the kata clinic was again outstanding!
Without their willingness to share their knowledge this wouldn’t be possible.
Thank you to everyone at Columbia Dojo who came up and taught the clinic.
