Judo Mannequin Challenge

This weekend our friends up at Sandbach Judo Club challenged us to do the Mannequin Challenge, so on Sunday we gave it a go and here is the result:

The question everyone is asking is who is the mystery Judoka? Could it be Ilias Iliadis? Masu Baker? Teddy Riner? Let us know who you think it is?

No Judo This week

Dear all,

there is no Judo at the club this week due to the Hampshire Open Competition and coach Lance Wicks being away at the Tashkent Grand Prix in Uzbekistan.

Enjoy the break, good luck to those competing and for those not competing; perhaps a good week to recover and find a partner to practice the kata with so you can enter the Hampshire Kata Competition on 16th.

 

Olympic Judo week in Southampton starts today!

Today marks the start of our week long celebration of Judo. We have Judo sessions everyday, where you are welcome to come and train, come and try or just come and watch some Judo.

Yesterday, Ashley Mckenzie of TeamGB competed, and started strongly with a win against Turkey. In the next round he faced Yeldos Smetov of Kazakhstan, who unfortunately for Ashley took the contest. Smetov is a bit of a club favourite (due to the coaches son choosing him 3 years ago as his favourite, and of course because of our Kazakh member Daulet who recently medalled at the Hampshire Split Grade competition.

Today, Sunday, sees TeamGB represented by Colin Oates who faces France in the opening round. We shall be supporting him as he tries to get a medal.

We will also be supporting Kelmendi of Kosovo in the women’s competition. She is a two time world champion, flag bearer for her team and like Rio as it was where she won her first world title!

Come try Olympic Judo.

The Olympic Games are about to start in Rio. The Judo starts off the show, the stadium is sold out but you can enjoy the fun at Southampton City Judo Club.

We have scheduled sessions for anyone who wants to give Judo a go or even just watch the amazing athletes do their thing.

Checkout out events page for our Olympic sessions.

Hampshire-wide session (24th) and Olympic Games Project

This Sunday (July 24th, 3-5pm), Southampton City Judo Club is hosting a Hampshire-wide senior training session with Danny Murphy Snr.

Hampshire Senior Squad Training at Southampton City Judo Club.

The previous session was well attended and we have extra space ready if required. The session is a low £3 per person (please pay at reception).

This session will have a guest coach, Sam Potts. Sam  a Hampshire athlete of international level with many medals. This is a great opportunity to meet and train with one of Hampshire’s star performers.

Olympic Project

This August is special for all Judoka as we have the Olympic Judo competition in Rio. During the last games we had many enquiries and new people start Judo again or for the first time.

This time we are scheduling a number of Judo taster sessions, with more being confirmed shortly.

So if you have never tried Judo or are thinking about coming back now is the time to take the next step and sign up. Or better yet, get a step ahead of those drawn in by the Olympic Judo and pop down to a session before the Rio2016 Judo starts on August 6th.

You can keep an eye on when the taster session will be via our Events Page
