Recent and upcoming

Quick notes for now, photos and video later.

Dojo tournament. We had a great turnout on Saturday, including guests from Five Points, where Kevin McGrath is Director of Personal Training and a judo instructor. I got to see some fine players from Oishi's day classes, including a demo of ju-no-kata by two yellow belts which put the rest of us to shame. After the tournament several players, including those two yellow belts, received well-deserved promotions. I was particularly pleased to see Max and Ki receive green belt and yellow belt, respectively.

Hudson Athletic Fund Workout. This will be a monthly series of fundraising workouts at various locations. I went to the first of these workouts the Friday before last and had a good time. The next one will be on Friday April 16, at Tech Judo. Registration form here.

Upcoming tournaments. The Liberty Bell in Philadelphia is next weekend. The Senior Nationals will be in Myrtle Beach, SC on the weekend of May 1-2. Jeff will be competing; I don't know of anyone else.

    Videos of the matches are uploading to YouTube now. It may literally take a day for them all to get done. I'll post here when they're ready.

    Hi Andy. Really enjoyed what you have uploaded so far. It is nice to see that most of the matches were won by nice Ippons. Congratulations to everyone.

    Hi, Tom. It would have been nice to make a highlights reel of all the ippons, but I just didn't have time. Hope to see you on the mat one of these days.

    Unfortunately I haven't been able to get home the past year and a half or so. Hoping in the summer and of course first stop is the dojo! Best
