Christmas Party December 14th!

Hey all, the Christmas party with be at Sensei Allen’s house from 4 – 7 pm this Saturday.

We would love to see everyone, new to Judo, considering Judo, or who haven’t come to see us for awhile.

This is a potluck, I’ll cook some pulled pork (Christmas pulled pork?), and I invite others to bring dishes, desserts and drinks.

We will put the most recent Judo championship on the big screen, and my daughter will be helping kids make holiday smores at the fire pit.

OK here is how you get there, and pay attention because your GPS will lie to you. The address is 3201 w 7th, but the house is NOT on 7th (there IS no 7th). From our Judo club, head west on 2nd, turning into Sunset Blvd, until Government way (Turn right), a block or two later turn left onto Hartson, continue under the train bridge, then turn Left on Substitute.

Park on substitute street, and The house will be uphill to your right. Walk up carefully the stone steps to the house!

call me at 509-279-4212 if you get lost. And for goodness sakes, don’t use your phone GPS and get lost.

December Thursday Night Fights (12/5)

This Thursday is that time again, December Thursday Night Fights!
(Previously known as Monday Night Fights).

We would love to see everyone from Joseki, Pacific, and Lakeland.
Everyone should arrive at 6:00 so we can mix adult and kid matches.

I realize this is the middle of the holiday season, but what better way to say Happy Holidays than by throwing someone.
