Tournament Tomorrow, No Practice Saturday or Monday

Just a reminder, we have 9 competitors in the tournament on Saturday. If you aren’t competing, go and support those who are.

No Practice Saturday or Monday

Because of the tournament, there will be no practice Saturday. Monday is Memorial Day so no practice then either. See everyone Thursday ready to relive the glory of the tournament.

Senior Nationals, no practice

We will not have our normal Saturday practice

Tomorrow and Sunday are the Senior Nationals, I encourage everyone who isn’t volunteering or competing to go and cheer everyone on.
The opening ceremony is at 8:00 tomorrow for the shiai and Sunday at 10:00 for the kata competition.
All event info and updated results are available here.

Good luck to Tay and Sensei Sam!

Senior Nationals Volunteers

Pacific Judo needs volunteers for the upcoming Senior Nationals.
Specifically, I would like to get at least 4 volunteers to help running a table on Saturday 5/20.
I will be bugging everyone, so the earlier you sign up to help, the less everyone has to hear about it.
The table help will have the best seat in the house for some of the best judo in the US, so don’t miss this chance to help and see some excellent judo.
