On a Break

VCU Judo is currently on a break until August because we are still hammering out the details for our practice space. However we should be back very shortly (Less than 2 weeks). I will let everyone know immediately when practice resumes. Pete Mantel has agreed to stay on as the permanent instructor for our club so that is a major step in the right direction. In addition we also have a budget in which funds have been allocated for us to attend a few competitions this year. Also we need people to come to the Sovo fair and Club sport night at the Cary Street Gym. In the case for the Sovo fair we just need people to come and man the table and help promote our club. In the case of the Club sport night I think we should put together a light demo for everyone to see just what Judo is all about. So please if anyone wants to help (New or Old members) please let Thea or myself know so we are certain we have enough people to complete these assignments.(The Sovo Fair isn't optional for the club). You can contact myself at in order to let me know if you can help or simply leave a comment below with your name and email and I will get in contact with you.

This is going to be a great year for Judo guys, the time is now and we have so much to look forward to.

Judo Techniques!

This link is to the BJA's teaching website, which has dozens of Judo techniques, all categorized by difficulty etc.

Start with RED (the beginner rank in the UK I guess...) and watch a few! A great way to kill time, at least better than watching people hurt themselves on YouTube.
