Choosing the right platform for a judo club's online presence is crucial for its growth and community engagement. While Facebook is a popular and versatile social network, Judo Connect offers specific advantages tailored to the needs and aspirations of judo clubs. Here are three main reasons why Judo Connect is a better choice for a judo club compared to using Facebook as their primary social network:

The juniors carried out their warmup followed by some stretching and finally their breakfalls. They were then split into two teams to follow on from last week improving on their balance and sweeping techniques. This moved on to running around cones then hopping using alternate legs on each pass of the cones. Finally controlling a ball with their feet as they moved around the cones. The middle part of the session refreshed Ko soto gari from last week with some improved results and finally began working working with Ko uchi gari before finishing with dodgeball and stuck in the mud.

A day or two late but here goes.

The juniors started their session with their warmup followed by breakfalls and some stretches. This was followed with a continuation of balance exercises, using a belt as a beam and walking along it trying not to step off to the side, all players standing in a circle passing/throwing the ball to each other trying not to move off their spot and finally using the foot sweeping action moving a ball around a set of cones. They then moved on to Ko Soto gari concentrating on using the sweeping motion to execute the technique. Some good results but more practice will

It was a very warm evening for training and so there were plenty of water breaks for the juniors. After their warmup, breakfalls and some stretching they were split into two teams, again, working on their balance walking then running around cones and finally using a ball to improve their sweeping technique and using both feet which some found a bit more difficult. They moved onto a continuation from last week working with Ko Soto gari to reinforce the sweeping action. Some slight improvement was noted. After a short break they moved onto Ogoshi, stepping into the technique but not throwing and

Once again the evening was a little cooler for training. The juniors completed their warmup, breakfalls and some stretching they also had a go at cartwheels which is a good confidence builder. Their session started off with them stepping off on their toes and the turning through 90 degrees and also through 180 degrees. This is a good exercise for improving balance. They were then split into two teams using the cones once more moving round them with increasing speed. Finally using the balls again to work on their sweeping action as they go round the cones. The final part of the session was com

After shutting last week because of covid we are open again and the juniors were straight back into training as if nothing had happened. After their warmup some stretching and breakfalls they were split into three groups where they practiced the basic turnover with Uke in an โ€˜all foursโ€™ position. There was some finer instruction of where to place the arms as some of the players were having trouble trying to put an arm through the gap between arms and legs. Once that was cleared up things progressed well and by the end of the session they were much better than when they started. The junior sess

This weeks junior session started with warmup exercises followed by breakfalls then cartwheels. We had a couple of new starters who were then taken to one side and taught their breakfalls. For the remainder Osoto otoshi was demonstrated and they were then split into groups and proceeded to practice using the safety mats to help cushion their fall. After this they demonstrated their techniques to the whole group. De ashi Bari on the move was then demonstrated next then and again they moved away into space to practice this. They finished their session with a couple of games dodgeball.

This weeks started with the juniors completing their warmup, stretches and breakfalls before moving onto the first part of their session. This took the form of a demonstration of how and where to place the feet for Tai otoshi. The juniors practiced this firstly individually then with a partner and finally as a complete throw. The safety mats were used to help cushion the repeated landings. Then they moved onto Kesa gatame and then combined this with the throw before demonstrating their efforts in front of everyone. We can report that there were some good examples shown indicating good progre

After their warmup, stretches and breakfalls the juniors watched a demonstration of a simple turnover into Kesa gatame before moving off with a partner to practice. There were a number of partner changes so everyone got the chance to try the technique on different sizes of opponent. They also used this time to ensure they were able to get into Kesa gatame quickly without losing control of their partner. Then they moved onto some Newaza randori before finishing their session with a couple of games of dodgeball.

This week the juniors session was missing a numbers of players due to school holidays however our diehards started their session with a warmup followed by stretching and breakfalls (Ukemi). Then they had a go at cartwheels, some good some needing a bit more practice. The technical part of the training focused on Osoto othoshi paying attention to hand placement on the jacket and also to foot placement. After this the juniors moved on to Newaza work concentrating on Osaekomi waza (hold downs or pinning) before finishing with a game of cat and mouse then dodgeball as a form of warming down.

This weeks junior session started with a warmup followed by some stretching and their breakfalls. They then had a go at some cartwheels again!, letโ€™s call this a work in progress. The main body of training took the form of randori, firstly with Tachiwaza where one players did all the throwing and the other offering some light resistance. Then they swapped over roles and then changed partners which gave them the chance to try their techniques on different sizes of opponents. Their last part of training was in Newaza, changing partners every few minutes. They finished their session with a couple

The junior session, as always, started with a warmup followed some stretching and their breakfalls before having another go at cartwheels. Still needs work!! The technical section of the evening took the form of grading preparation for 1st, 2nd and 3 Sho also for 1st Mon. This covered Osoto otoshi into Kesa gatame and the escape. These techniques were demonstrated by each pair at the end of their session. It was noted though that more practice is required on tying belts (Obi) and the Japanese/English terminology. Finally they finished off with some Newaza changes and a game of dodgeball.

With colder nights drawing in a good warmup with some stretching and breakfalls was essential for the junior session. This was followed again by some cartwheels which are slowly improving. The first part of the session saw the juniors working on gripping techniques (Kumi kata), how to move their hands around an opponentโ€™s jacket whilst maintaining some control and not just letting go. They started out in a static position which, after a few minutes, was progressed to changing grips during movement. Then they moved on to Randori and Newaza changes and it was really good the see the older junior

This week saw the clubโ€™s annual presentation evening but before that there was some judo to be done. The session was slightly shorter than usual but followed the same format, a warmup followed by some stretching and then breakfalls and also the popular and improving cartwheels. Tai otoshi was demonstrated with emphasis on foot placement by Tori and the need for a good breakfall by Uke. The juniors then went on to practice this in a round robin and using the safety mats to lessen the impact of all the landings.
They then moved on to the presentation of trophies and the well earned accolades we

A few absent players this week mainly due to colds but the remainder carried on regardless. Warmup followed by breakfalls got the juniors ready for their session. The players paired up and started with De ashi Bari with the older players executing the throw on the move and the younger ones starting with toe tapping before moving onto the throw. Mune gatame was then demonstrated to them then everyone practiced De ashi Bari transitioning into Mune gatame. Finally the escape technique was demonstrated and then all three elements were put together and there was some excellent results from all play

Wednesday was the last judo session of the year. Unfortunately there were fewer numbers in the junior session than expected and sadly they missed their Christmas gifts. However those who were there warmed up with some exercises and their breakfalls. They followed this with some cartwheels which are improving so keep up the hard work, then weโ€™ll progress to one handed cartwheels!! They then split into pairs to practice some turnovers before ending the year with some games, cat and mouse, crab football and a final game of sumo.

Welcome to 2024 and we hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. We had a good turnout of juniors and after a steady warmup, some stretching and breakfalls they got into their session. This took the form of a round robin of Tachiwaza, different ages and sizes all working together which took up most of the session. They also worked on mat etiquette particularly for competitions, bowing on/off the mat, refereeโ€™s terminology and importantly when to and not to release your opponent!!

Great turnout on a cold evening so a really good warmup, stretching and breakfalls was the first order of the juniors session. This was followed by cartwheels which are definitely improving. The main aspect of the junior session was randori with plenty of changes so everyone got to fight with each other. Emphasis was made ensuring that the bigger players looked after the smaller ones thus making sure that everyone got something positive out of the session. Again towards the end of the session mat etiquette was practiced simulating the procedures required at competition contests (entering the m

After their warmup , stretching and breakfalls the junior session started with a demonstration of Tai Otoshi. The juniors were then paired off and went to practice. After a few changes they then went into some randori using competition rules and referee terminology to practice the throw in a competition environment. After a water break they began practicing transition into hold downs using Ogoshi into Kesa Gatame or Kuzushi Kesa Gatame then another round of randori as previously. The session finished with a game of crab football. A great effort from all the juniors and improvement was noticed

The juniors had a different warmup at the start of their session, turtles, then exercises, stretches and cartwheels which are still improving. For the main part of their session they worked on Ouchi Gari. It was broken down into parts, firstly the circular motion of the attacking leg which was practised using a cone and moving the leg around the cone to create the circular motion. This action was then used against a partner and was progressed to the full throw. Finally a round robin of randori and Newaza before finishing with a game of dodgeball.

Junior session warmup consisted of stretching, breakfalls and the still improving cartwheels. A continuation from last week working on Ouchi Gari and Kouchi Gari using cones again to get the attack leg motion right before moving on to working with a partner. One problem keeps cropping up, which leg to attack, but things are improving. They finished their technical session with a round robin of Tachi waza using the two throws before finally finishing with a game of turtles then dodgeball.
Congratulations to Sasha on his successful completion of his grading to 1st Mon. Keep working hard.

Whatโ€™s a Ukemi?

Ukemi, the Japanese term for โ€˜breakfallโ€™, is an exhilarating part of Judo that keeps us secure when weโ€™re thrown about.

Itโ€™s not just about the thrill of the throw, itโ€™s the art of the fall - safeguarding our heads from impact and preserving our limbs and body.

The ukemi is our first lesson in Judo, a thrilling introduction to the sport.

Plus, itโ€™s not confined to the Judo mat - itโ€™s a life skill that keeps us safe every day, even when we take an unexpected tumble!
