Congratulations to the Judokas from Yuki Judo who attended the VAJU Autumn Tournament yesterday.
It was a great event with around 25 participants across all categories!
Results and comments from yesterday:
Congratulations to Eilidh for participating on her first tournament showing great attitude with some loses and wins, but taking valuable experience for the future.
Abi did a great job joining the comp at the last minute without having fully recovered from her finger luxation last week. Being one of the lighter participants in her category, she fought amazingly and demonstrated great Judo skills.
Both competitors had five exhausting fights with many experienced Judokas and demonstrated they have what it takes to be great Judokas!
Great tournament for Bonnie, participating in a very though category with many experienced Judokas. After four intense fights, she received the bronze medal in her category!
All in all, a highly successful tournament. We had fun, we learn a lot and we are ready to keep training for the next one in June!
Last week Yuki Judo had its last class of 2020. No doubt it was a challenging year for everybody but in spite of that, we’ve kept training via our videos and online classes.
Happily, at the end of November we managed to come back to our Dojo and resume our classes sticking to our COVID management plan and enjoying training Judo together again.
Yuki, the name of our Dojo, means Courage in Japanese and it’s one of the Judo core values. Judo is a really difficult martial art, it takes time and dedication to make progress and many times is scary and challenging.
I wanted to share these two videos I’ve prepared for our brave Judokas showing what we do in every class.
Looking forward to resuming our classes next year, I wish you all a great 2021!
A few weeks after we suspended the classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I started recording free video classes for the young judokas in our kids class and they are available for any other kid that wants to give it a go.
Please, don’t expect perfect ‘Instagram’ quality videos, this is more about Judo. The classes are recorded so they can be followed standing in front of a TV, laptop or mobile phone with minimal space required to do the exercises.
I’m uploading a new class every approximately 2 weeks and there is a section where they can pick the individual exercises in case they want to work in something in particular.
Please stay safe in this difficult times and I hope we all can go back to our Dojos soon.
Yuki Judo was at Strathmore North Primary School last week, running a Judo workshop for kids from year 3 to 6.
experience and wonderful kids!
As part of
the school’s Japanese program, the kids received from Yuki Judo a Japanese
vocabulary list and learned about the history of Judo, its principles, Judo
etiquette and what we do in a regular Judo practice.
