Judo takes a break for Easter

March 21, 2010

Hi folks,

As usual, no judo over the Easter vacation. We will start up again on the first tuesday of the summer term – April 20th.

If you are in Southampton over the holiday, keep an eye on the club email list for offers of a ride to local clubs.

Hampshire Closed 2010

March 7, 2010

We had only one competitor at this year’s Hampshire closed but Andrew did us proud, fighting really well, and getting a silver in the u81 category. He even managed to avoid any penalties for leg grabs, despite thinking about it a couple of times!

He won all fights in his pool, and was unlucky to get caught for a soft ippon from the eventual gold medal winner. Because the final positions were determined by a second round pool, his last fight determined the silver medal and a tough scrap with an inexperienced but strong and fit player was eventually determined by a penalty in the golden score period.

So congratulate him at the next session!
