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.


Community Center Closed for Labor Day

Just a reminder that the community center is closed on Monday 9/4 for Labor day.
Everyone should rest up and come to practice on Wednesday ready to workout!


No Practice on Jul. 3rd

The community center is closed on Monday Jul. 3rd. So, there won’t be practice that day. Have fun celebrating the 4th. There will be practice on Wednesday Jul. 5.
See everyone then.


Myles Freeman Promotion

I wanted to congratulate Myles Freeman on his successful promotion test for purple belt. He had a large number of techniques to demonstrate and he did an excellent job.
With this promotion comes increased expectations. Myles will have to accept more responsibilities. He is definitely up to the task!


USB flash drive found

After practice tonight a USB drive was left in the hallway. I’m not sure if was a Judo members drive, but if so it was left at lost and found at the front desk.


2017 Inland Empire Judo Classic Results

I was glad to see all the members who came out and supported the tournament. This included the players on the mat and the people who helped with the table (Paul, Cassidy Freeman, Chris Mitchell, Rya, Anna Marie). Also, Allen and Miles Freeman did a great job reffing!

John Freeman deserves special recognition for organizing the Spokane Judo table and working the entire tournament. Without him there wouldn’t have been a Spokane Judo table. Judo is all about mutual benefit, but I believe Spokane Judo has definitely gotten our benefit from John!

Finally, here are the actual competition results. The fighters all did well. There are always things to work on.

Name Result:
Myles Freeman 3rd (15-16 division)
Jake Gott 3rd
Isla Gott 3rd
Elaina Gott 3rd

Quick Reminder, no Practice Today

Just wanted to remind everyone that the community center is closed for Memorial day, so no practice today.
See everyone Wednesday ready to workout!
