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!
The entry form is here.
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.
