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
  • Green

    • Kris Behm

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.

Saturday Swimming!

Sadly Saturday judo is no more but as an alternative this Saturday, 6/27 we have swimming at my house.
We want everyone to attend. If you have been too lazy to come to practice, swimming is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with all of us in judo. If you have been out because of a rib injury, come and regale us with stories of the pain of sleeping on your back. Basically, just come.
Any of the Pacific judo members are also welcome as you guys are regulars at Spokane Judo practices and you should be part of swimming as well.

My house is here:

Bring something to eat or drink and sunscreen.
Please come around 2:00. The weather forecast says it will be 99°.
Hope to see everyone there.

Take the opportunity to remember those who have served.

Congratulations on their Promotions

Both of you worked hard to get where you are. Keep it up.

The current Judo rules


There have been lots of referee/rules questions lately. I just wanted to give a link to the current IJF rules publication intended to cover 2014-2016. There are slight interpretation differences and clarifications for USJF/America/Northwest Yudanshakai etc but this pretty much covers all the nitty gritty details.

Link to IJF website english rules PDF

It is not exciting reading, but anyone who skims through it will be guaranteed to learn something they didn’t know.

Way to go Aleksi

Aleksi’s motto should have been “Veni, vidi, vici”.
As he took 1st place again this weekend in the Seattle Dojo tournament.

Something for us to work on
