Easter Training Day and Easter Course 2019

We held our annual Easter training day and competition at the Abbey senior school on the 24th March. With just over 30 children in attendance, and we were lucky to have Sensei Warren back to help.

We were very lucky to have two time Olympian and current Commonwealth Champion Ashley McKenzie in to run a masterclass for the morning session. The children had a great time looking at a turnover in ne waza, how he uses his tai otoshi in matches, and everyone got the opportunity to have a randori (free practise) with Ashley. At the end of the session Ashley awarded two judo kits to William Mason (St Nicolas juniors) and to Megan Jefferies (Shinfield St Marys Juniors) for their hard work and teamwork. The second part of the morning session was all about judo-based games, working on movement, balance, balance breaking exercises, and hand eye coordination.  

During the afternoon, we had our competition, the children were split into 7 groups of equal size and ability. The children were given a quick warm up and then the rules were stated. The were some fantastic matches, very a close match between Tristan Baudoin (St Nicolas) and Ethan Jamieson (Birch Copse) where both boys gave everything. There were some lovely ippon throws from Isabella Woods (Polehampton juniors), Isla Hallett (Sonning Common), Christopher Broadfoot (St Nicolas juniors), Hattie Mason (St John’s the Evangelist), and Eryk Kedzia (Christ the King).

The finals where all closely contested, everyone had moments and opportunities to get the winning score. Megan Jefferies (Shinfield St Marys juniors) and Hattie Mason (St John’s the Evangelist) had a great battle, with both girls really going for it. It was a very close affair with Megan coming out on top.

The final part of the day was the awards for the Sensei’s to give out the prizes to their judoka’s of the day, the winnings were:

Isla Hallett (Sonning Common)

Eryk Kedzia (Christ the King)

Isaac Ryder (Caversham)

Hattie Mason (St Johns the Evangelist)

Easter Course

Our annual Easter Course was held at the Abbey Senior School between the 15th-18th April. We had an average of 20 children on the mat each day.

The lay out of each day was two sessions of judo in the morning, a games/ team challenge after lunch, randori (free practise)/ matches, before a recap session at the end where parents were able to come along and see what was learnt in the day.

In the judo sessions, the children looked at Koshi Waza (hip throws), Ashi Waza (leg techniques), Te Waza (hand throws), and ne waza (ground techniques). There was some new in every session for the children to learn, such balancing and hopping in ashi waza, hip fighting in koshi waza, and turnovers in ne waza. The children also looked at combinations, how to set up for a technique if the first attack is blocked or countered.

It was great to see some of the techniques used in the randori/ matches session, Drew Doolan used a hopping o soto gake a number of times to break his parents balance, Madison Elton and Oliver Newman had a great battle with the hips with Madison coming out on top, Freddie Horwood used o uchi gari to set up for tai otoshi which worked really well for him. There were also some very closes matches with both judoka’s going all out attack and some how neither got thrown (Ethan Jamieson and Dainel Price).

The games/ team challenges were looking at the fundamental skills such as balance, hand eye coordination, foot eye coordination, strength. We also a Sensei Blair verse Sensei Toufik, which everyone got involved in supporting the sensei’s in their challengers, with Sensei Toufik coming out on top.

Each day there was a prize for judoka of the day, the winners were:
