Warriors/Young Judo Club March Newsletter

March  2014

Welcome everyone to our third newsletter of the year. I hope last month letter was very informative and you marked down all the dates for diary.
It is very important that we support all the competition that clubs are running within the IBF as there is a lot of hard work and hours that go into running a competition and of course these competition cost money. Not only is it natural progression for your child to fight in as many competition as possible, but it will also help in their quest for higher grades within Judo.  

Attendance for the month:  over all lesson.

Junior Judo.
Weekly trophy winners were: Bradley, harry Higgins,jayden scales,Kieran webb,lousie henry,

The trophies are handed out each week to a student who has either worked really hard or done a technique really well or has impressed the instructor with their attitude towards others and the class. Well done you and your parents should be very proud!

Competition results: Still awaiting from Mr Costa the full report from the competition last month, this will follow in a separate email.

Grading results: No grading in January. Next Grading Saturday March 29th

Senior Judo.

Well done to Richard Seaman for winning gold in the Sittingbourne open Blake Southfield and Keith Brown for getting a Bronze medal. I was very impressed with all of you and how much your technique have improved well done.

This year George Loscombe started up a Sombo/Combat sombo class for kids, this is the first time anyone has tried this but going by the numbers attending his class it seems to be very successful. Sombo is a completely different sport from Judo with less restrictions and uncomplicated rules, it is much easier sport to follow, however it is not for the fainthearted. George also does a weekly Trophy winner and these winners are: erin duggan, Olivia crosswell, milly loscombe.

Warriors grappling academy MMA is a mixture of Judo, Sombo, Combat Sombo, Kick Boxing and boxing all rolled into one. This is also a sport not for the fainthearted. The class consists of throwing with no jacket submissions, punching and kicking as well as hard core fitness. The club is going from strength to strength. This is an adult class only (14 and over).
