Well, the 2016 CJI State Judo Championships are behind us. NorCal Sport Jujitsu & Judo Club had a good showing and each competitor was met with some good competition. We had some very notable accomplishments that we would like to mention. Jazmin took 1st place in her division and this was only her second time ever competing! Great job Jazmin!! Jake also took 1st place in the men's division! Kylie went up against a junior blue belt in her first ever Juvenile A (chokes permitted) division. Very close matches and very impressive considering she was an orange belt going against the equivalent of a brown belt. She lost her first round against this girl by only a Shido (stalling infraction)! Nikolas was in an 8 competitor pool that was stacked with talent. He didn't make the podium this time around but he won some matches along the way and being that it was his first State Championship appearance we think he put on a pretty good show. Elias was faced with an interesting competitor pool that was filled with some tough Judoka. The result was a three way tie for 2nd place! Very unusual, but it shows how close these matches were. We would like to congratulate all of these tough competitors once again for their participation in this challenging event! Just showing up was an accomplishment in itself!!
