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:

Oliver Newman (Pangbourne Primary)

Harry Ackrell (Knowl Hill Club)

Corrin McAuslin (Theale Village Hall Club)

There was also a prizes for Judoka’s of the week, the winners were:

Christmas Training Day and Competition – 24th November

 

We held our annual Christmas training day and competition on the 24th November at The Abbey Senior School. We had 35 excited children turn up from all the schools that we teach in, ready to get stuck in.

The first session of the morning the children were introduced to uchi mata, taught by Sensei Blair. The technique was built up from the ground up to completing the throw stood up. The children also looked a couple of ne waza turnover to held them with the competition in the afternoon.

The second session, the children were looking at ippon seoi nage, again starting the ground and working their way up to standing up. The children also looked at the speed of transition from tachi waza to ne waza. This gave the children the opportunity to experiment with different combinations.

The afternoon session was the competition, the children were split into 10 groups of equal ability and size. It was a very well supported event with lots of parents and siblings turning up to support (even bringing in banners). The matches were very competitively contested, with some great throws from Levi Sever (St Edwards prep), Nathan Sikorski, Eryk Kediza (both Christ the King), and Charlie Hill (Courthouse). The throw of the day when to Daniel Price (Knowl Hill) who caught Marcel Dezon (Birch Copse) with a massive o goshi.

After the round robin stage, it was then time for the finals. There were again some very closely fought matches, Mia Tilsley (Pangbourne) and Megan Jefferies (Shinfield) was very close until Megan produced a lovely bit of ne waza to pin Mia down. There was also a close one between Charlie Hill (Courthouse) and Jai Sharma (Micklands), with Charlie reserving the result from the pool stage with a lovely tai otoshi to win.
