Since we did DE ASHI BARAI last week

This is a video of Neil Adams introducing the 40 throws of the Gokyo in judo.
The first is DE ASHI BARAI.
The rest is worth watching as well.

Something to watch while not at practice

This is a nice video.
I particularly like his emphasis on the importance of drilling.

Saturday Practice

Just a reminder that we will have practice this Saturday at 12:30 at the sheriff’s training center. This is primarily competition oriented so little instruction. Hope to see everyone there.

Congratulations to the competitors

I just wanted to congratulate Allen and Aleksi on their 3rd place medals. This should be good practice for the Crown in a couple of weeks.

Monday October 13th we’ll be doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu night at Newborn-Cascao (ECCC Closed for Columbus day)

The East Central Community Center is closed October 13th for Columbus day. Rather than not practice, friend of the club James Weed of Newborn-Cascao Jiu Jitsu has invited us to come practice with them that night. BJJ and Judo share a common root, and although the sport rules (and thus strategies) are very different, there is a lot of cross-application. It is a lot of fun and will help improve your newaza game.

Newborn-Cascao is located at 1604 N Monroe in Spokane. Class is from 6:30 to 8:00pm. This class is for adults only.

Regular Judo will resume at ECCC on Wednesday October 15th.

No practice Saturday

We have Allen and Aleksi competing this weekend and since they are both regulars at Saturday practice, we are going to cancel practice this Saturday.
I am sure they are going to represent Spokane Judo well!

We want you back!

Attendance has been down lately.
We want you back!
We have Saturday practice back and there are some tournaments coming up.
The new mats are nice!
Come back and enjoy the softness!

2014 Continental Crown

The Continental Crown will be on November 8 in Seattle. This is usually a big tournament.
From the Continental Crown site:

“For many years the Continental Crown Judo Tournament has been a showcase event for judo athletes on the west coast of the United States. The Continental
Crown is a USA Judo Senior Class-E and Junior Class-D event, and consistently features some of the highest caliber judo players in the country. This year
we happily invite judo players from all over the Pacific Rim and the world to participate in the spirit of international friendship and competition. The
Continental Crown is located in Seattle Washington in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Seattle is the birthplace of Judo on the mainland of the United
States and it is our distinct honor to host such a prestigious judo event in our state.”

The site is here.

Registration info (either on-line or downloadable entry packet) is here.

The long awaited return of Saturday practice

We will have practice this Saturday (9/6) at 12:30. Just a reminder that practice is at the Sheriff training center.
Hope to see people there.
