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.

No practice Labor day

Just wanted to let everyone know that the community center is closed on Monday September 1 for Labor day.
Enjoy the last weekend of the summer and we will see everyone on Wednesday Sept. 3 at the usual time.

Goodbye to Greg

Tonight is Greg Kvasov’s last practice, please come and get in your final throws!

2014 Rainier cup

Extra softness for your comfort


“Feather soft!  I wish my bed was this comfortable!”

“Like being caressed by a cloud”

“I didn’t even realize I had been thrown!  The crash pad feels like concrete by comparison!”


WE HAVE NEW MATS!  Spokane Judo has taken delivery of our brand new Judo mats and the quotes above are what I expect to hear on Monday August 4th when we get to use them for the first time.  Our old mats were ‘sub-optimal’ and made falling less pleasant than it can be.


Don’t miss Monday to be among the first to try them out!  Sensei Brett, Sensei Anna Marie, Sensei Oleg, Sensei Paul and Sensei Cheyenne will be offering free trial landings!  Don’t miss it!


Vacation from Saturday Practice

We will not be having Saturday practice for the next several weeks. Enjoy the summer.
