Several members of the NorCal Sport Jujitsu & Judo Team participated in the 2014 Capital Open Judo Tournament being held in Sacramento, California this past weekend. Out of 9 entries we had 8 podium appearances and each of our competitors showed a tremendous amount of heart and sportsmanship. This picture above shows Kylie receiving a first place finish against a very large and talented group of competitors. Above that is Jake receiving his first place finish after his efforts in some very fast paced matches. If us coaches were to pick a favorite throw of the day it would have to be a tie between Jake's incredibly clean Osoto Makikomi which resulted in a match win by Ippon and Brook's left sided Tai Otoshi that also led to her victory by Ippon. Coaches in attendance for this tournament were Sensei Shane Thompson and Sensei Ted Nakada. For more information on our Judo and Jujitsu programs please visit www.NorCalSportJujitsu.com.
