Latest COVID-19 Guidance from the USJF

I just wanted to update everyone on the latest guidance from the USJF regarding practice.
It looks like the USJF describes 5 phases w/r/t getting back on the mat.
The first time it looks like we can practice is phase 4 according to the USJF.
This looks like it happens when there is no longer any restriction on public gatherings.
So I think this all means it will still be a while before we are back on the mat.
I hope everyone is doing well these days.
Keep working out so you are ready to practice when we can.
The USJF document is here.
I am happy to discuss this with anyone.

Alaina Competing in Germany

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.
