2022 Inland Empire Information Packet

Here is the information for the tournament on May 28.
I think everyone should attend. You should come either to compete or come and watch and help out.
Competition helps you focus your judo by making it easy to identify areas you can work on.
Helping at the tournament not only helps out the club hosting the tournament, but will help teach you lots about judo.
You can download the information packet here.
I can’t stress enough how beneficial tournaments are for everyone.

Battle by the Lake Tournament

All of our competitors did a great job on Saturday – they not only demonstrated judo, but all of them give it their all!

Other Competitors

It is easy to say that people who didn’t place didn’t do a good job. However, the other people who competed, Stefan Cheptanari, Rylee Vaughn, and Sam Lui all did great – they worked hard and did judo, their fine efforts just did not turn into wins.

There is always the next tournament!
