62nd Annual Obukan Judo Shiai and Kata / Onchi Sensei Memorial Tournament

This tournament is on March 24 in Portland.
There is a kata shiai on the 23rd so if you can go and watch that would be a good opportunity to see kata in action.

The entry form with additional info is here.

Some photos from practice recently

Sensei Tim (well really Sensei Tim’s wife) was kind enough to take some photos recently at practice.
I have posted a few of them here.

Lakeland Invitational Results

Yesterday, we had 3 competitors at the tournament. All of them did a very nice job. They all displayed excellent sportsmanship, and good judo. In short they did an outstanding job of representing Spokane Judo.
Jake Gott did two superlative throws on his way to taking 1st place.
Miles Lewis had several hard matches but managed to take 3rd in his division.
Finally, Elaina Gott had a tough division and did some very nice judo. She didn’t manage to place, but she did demonstrate that her judo is improving and her hard work is paying off.

In addition to the competitors, I wanted to thank Anna Marie Medina and Allen Monroe for their hard work in supporting the tournament. Without people like them, there wouldn’t be any tournament.

Lakeland Tournament

Lakeland is hosting another local tournament on 2/3/2018 in Athol. I strongly encourage everyone to compete. The last two tournaments have both been excellent and invaluable opportunities to hone your competition judo!

I need to submit a team roster by Wed. 1/31 so if you are interested in competing, I will need to know Monday at practice.

Congratulations on their Recent Promotions

Just before the holidays, we held senior promotion testing. In the excitement of over eating and general excess, I forgot to post the results.

  • Nikyu:

    • Christopher B Mitchell
  • Sankyu:

    • Jacob T Gott

They both did a very nice job on the testing. It is rewarding to see students master techniques and refine their judo.

No practice tonight (edit: this went out late)

All, due to severe weather practice is cancelled tonight.

/edit: sorry this didn’t go out earlier I hope no one got stuck there.

Practice Cancelled due to weather (Dec 28)


With the current weather forecast of potentially dangerous roads, and being between Christmas and New Years, we are going to cancel practice for tonight. Be home safe with your families! We will still plan to have Saturday adult practice at 9:00 AM on December 30th at this time.

Thanks for understanding! Reminder due to New Years we also will not have Practice on the 1st. So, our next regular class will be Thursday January 4th!

Reminder: Practice Dec 28 and Dec 30

Just a reminder that we will have practice on Thursday 12/28 as usual.
We will also be finishing out the year with a Saturday practice on 12/30 at 9:00 for adults and advanced students.
I hope to see everyone there.

I need to work off the Christmas dinners I consumed! (am I the only one?)
