First, Portland Judo is hosting a clinic with Mike Swain, World Champion and 4 X Olympian on Friday 9/15. This is short notice, but he is an excellent instructor and well worth attending if you can. Info is here.

Second, on 9/23 Budokan will be holding their tournament. The entry form is here.

Third, on 9/30, there is a kata workshop for judges along with the 4th annual Pacific NW kata championship sponsored by Seattle Dojo. I don’t think we have anyone ready for this yet, but keep this type of event in mind as an option. Kata will definitely help all aspects of your judo.
