Week 3: Sankaku Revision & Kouchi-Gari

It's been three weekends now since the start of the year and the players are picking up lots of new techniques. They are also getting lots of randori and doing some shiai too. Everything's coming along smoothly.

Before the proper session started, the players worked on some grading moves. Many of them are going for their yellow belt.


For newaza, we revised sankaku. This will be the final session for sankaku. Starting next week we will move onto something new. The players did a drill whereby uke resisted 100%. It's kind of like randori except the focus was only on sankaku.



For tachi-waza, we worked on kouchi-gari, specifically skipping kouchi-gari, which is useful in a kenka-yotsu situation. As usual, we started off with uchikomi and then nagekomi. I also had them do a drill where both players tried to get kouchi on each other with full resistance. In other words, a randori where only kouchi could be used.

Players taking a break before moving on to randori and shiai.





We did some newaza randori and then instead of tachi-waza randori we did some shiai. There were some pretty good throws and quite a few surprise throws. Everyone's upping their game!

We ended the session with some cake. It was a really good session.





The players presented me with a collage of some of our training pics over the past few months.



Starting back for 2018 and meetup

The club restarted training sessions on Tuesday January 9th, 8pm and we resume with our 4 days a week of Judo:

  • Tuesday, 8pm, Tachi-waza (throwing techniques) – Randori
  • Wednesday, 8pm, Tachi-waza (throwing techniques) – Uchi Komi
  • Thursday, 8pm, Ne-waza (grownd techniques) – Randori
  • Sunday, 3pm, Tachi-waza and Ne-Waza – Kata and skill work

On Saturday January 20th, we had an informal meetup to discuss the plans for the year. This was really productive and our plans for the first quarter of 2018 include:

  • Competing in the British Universities Judo Championships (February)
  • Competing in the Malta Open Judo Championships (March)
  • Competing and Hosting a Team Competition in Southampton (April)

We are also planning some social activities, additional conditioning training and a few other surprises.

EUROPEANS ENJOY THIRD DAY SUCCESS AT TUNIS GRAND PRIX



Having taken three gold medals on day one and again on day two, European athletes went once more in search of gold on the third and final day of competition at the Tunis Grand Prix. Of the five remaining categories being contested, three top spots were won by European athletes along with 13 more medals to bring their total to a healthy 31 (including nine gold medals) over the three days. Maryna SLUTSKAYA (BLR) +78kg, Benjamin FLETCHER (IRL) -100kg, and Oleksandr GORDIIENKO (UKR) +100kg all topped their respective podiums.



In her first competition back after a six-month lay-off due to an injury suffered at the European Open in Minsk in July of last year Maryna Slutskaya was back to winning ways in the +78kg category. “I have been working hard during training, quite often with our men’s team, and I am happy with the way that I performed today,” said Slutskaya. The 26-year old Belarusian and current European champion went on to say,


“I feel comfortable with my weight after training and I am looking forward to competing in Paris next month.”


This was her second grand prix gold medal.


This weekend saw the first ever IJF Grand Prix gold medal for Ireland when Benjamin Fletcher took gold in the -100kg category. “It was an extremely hard day and, toward the end, I was hampered a little by a cut just under the nostril,” said Fletcher. He added,


“I came close when I won silver in Cancun last year so It’s difficult to believe that I’ve done it at last. I’ll be preparing for the Grand Slam in Dusseldorf next.”



There will be more to celebrate for Okeksandr Gordiienko than the gold medal he picked up by winning the +100kg category. In addition to this being his first ever IJF Grand Prix gold medal he is also celebrating his birthday.


“Somebody upstairs must be looking down on me with generosity,” joked the 26-year old giant from Ukraine.

THREE MORE GOLD MEDALS FOR EUROPE AT TUNIS GRAND PRIX



European athletes picked up where they left off after a successful first day by collecting three more gold medals on day two of competition at the Tunis Grand Prix. In addition to the three top spots, European athletes picked five more medals to bring their total to 18 over the first two days. Reigning Olympic champion Tina TRSTENJAK (SLO) -63kg, Kim POLLING (NED) -70kg, and Stanislav SEMENOV (RUS) -81kg all topped their respective podiums.


Tina TRSTENJAK (SLO) (white)


Trstenjak was pushed hard as she collected her sixth IJF Grand Slam title, a win that will see the 27-year old Slovenian move back to the number one spot on the IJF World Ranking List.


“It’s nice to start the year off with a win and I’ll look from tournament to tournament to keep that going,” said Trstenjak.


Kim POLLING (NED) vs Roxanne TAEYMANS (BEL)


For her part, Pollling’s win was her fifth IJF Grand Prix title and it was done in clinical fashion, the Dutch star winning all four of her contests by ippon.


“I am glad to be able to put together back-to-back wins,” said Polling.


As if Russia did not already have a wealth of talent at -81kgs up jumps Semenov to put in a hugely impressive performance to take his second Grand Prix gold medal. Semenov’s movement and timing were a joy to watch as ippon followed ippon, the Russian ending the day having scored on all five of his opponents whilst not giving up a single score.


“Of course I am glad to have the opportunity to compete in a Grand Prix and to show that I can win. My category is very strong in Russia so it is important to take the chances when they come and be successful,” said Semenov.
