You all have been listening to me go on and on about the importance of counters and combinations. Today Mike asked about combinations and I thought instead of me saying again that I think combinations are important, I would just post a link to this excellent resource.
This gives a nice list of techniques, with setups, follow-ups, and counters.
Memorize all of these and you will be fine.
The list is here.

On Feb. 8, Alaina will be at the German Open competing. After the tournament there is a 2 day training camp.
I am sure she will do an excellent job representing Spokane Judo.
If you are interested in more information about the event, it is here.
Attending these types of events is expensive. If you can help her out, she has a GoFundMe pagehere.
Best of luck to Alaina.
We are canceling practice on Sat. 1/11/2020. The weather is just too bad. See everyone Monday night.
Here is the latest tournament schedule for the Pacific Northwest.
In keeping with the time of year, I wanted to post the below link.
Judo is a hard thing to learn. The key take-away from this article for me is those who fail at learning a new skill are, overwhelmingly, those who don’t try to learn a new skill. Another way of putting this is if you don’t even try to learn, you definitely never will.
See everyone at practice tomorrow.
This Thursday is that time again, December Thursday Night Fights!
(Previously known as Monday Night Fights).
We would love to see everyone from Joseki, Pacific, and Lakeland.
Everyone should arrive at 6:00 so we can mix adult and kid matches.
I realize this is the middle of the holiday season, but what better way to say Happy Holidays than by throwing someone.
Practice will be canceled Thursday and Saturday this week. I am sure everyone will be busy eating!
We will see everyone on Monday and aim to take all that Thanksgiving indulgence off.
The ever intrepid students from Spokane Judo! Way to represent!
