Our NorCal Sport Jujitsu & Judo Team had a great showing at this year's 2015 Capital Open Judo Tournament which was held at Consumnes River College in Sacramento, California. More impressive than the fact that each of our members had appearances on the podium was the fact that they all gave it their best and displayed excellent sportsmanship. We are so very honored to coach such a great group of individuals.
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.
Our junior competitors at this weekends Judo Tournament in San Francisco each scored themselves a medal. We had 2 gold medalist, 1 silver medalist, and 2 bronze medalist. Outside of their outstanding efforts on the mat our coaching staff was most impressed by their display of good sportsmanship. Since some of these youngsters were competing against kids of greater experience it was quite the accomplishment for them and the beginning of greater things to come I am sure.
