From Lakeland Judo:
In an effort to grow judo, Lakeland Judo in Athol, Idaho (just behind Silverwood Theme Park) is offering two introductory events in December in preparation
for our upcoming 2024 tournament season.
On December 2, 2023 we will be offering a referee and rules clinic and table help clinic. This clinic will be taught by Rome Acopan Jr. from the Intermountain
Yudanshakai. This clinic is intended for judoka 13+ and orange+ for the purpose of better understanding the rules as well as developing a Jr. and Sr. Referee
team for the East Side of WA State. Attending Judoka will be given the opportunity to test for their regional referee certification.
On December 16, 2023 we will be offering a smaller two mat tournament focused on developmental competition. We will run two mats for time progression,
but will focus on a more “intimate” and “instructional” design. Our mission is to host a low stress, fun tournament where newer judoka and some more experienced
judoka along with their parents can meet others and learn the systems of a judo tournament with the intensity of upcoming regional and/or national events.
The tournament is open to all ages! My high school program is full of new white belts and my dojo is young in age and rank but growing strong. Both are
excited to meet new judo friends and attend an instructional event with sound, equal competitors.
We hope you are all able to join us. Please let me know if you have any further questions regarding the events.
