Judo is an Olympic sport. If you saw any of the 2012 London Olympics on the TV and were not impressed then don’t worry. Most Judo players find watching Judo on the TV harder than being on the mat. Olympic players are at the top of their game. When you see this level of Judo you are watching an athlete implement a complex strategy which has been worked out by player and coach over a number of years.
The moves and techniques in Judo are taken from the Japanese martial art of Jujitsu. In Jujitsu the idea of each technique is to maim, injure or even kill the opponent. So, Jigoro Kano took the Jujitsu techniques and transformed them into what we now know as the Judo. People often forget that ‘martial’ arts are war like arts. These are ancient forms of self defence. What this means to the Judo practitioner is that he or she can practice techniques to completion. This is, of course, not possible with martial arts. It important to remember that much of the training ethos and self discipline required for the martial arts is just as important for the practice of judo.

Smart Marketing Warriors

By Laurie

The Smart Marketing Warriors is a group of people who are determined to succeed with an on-line business. You may be bringing your current business on-line or starting from scratch. The group runs a membership site full of content and meets monthly in London on a Saturday for a full day of Internet Business and Networking.
During the meeting feedback is sought to provide the input for the next month. We also aim to bring in guest speakers to provide up to the moment presentations on current issues. Members who attend the meeting are invited to take a ‘Hot Seat’ session where we address any issues they have and agree an action plan. We then follow up on the plan at the next meeting to review progress.
As the URL above is a membership site the information available is restricted so go to the Smart Marketing Warriors, Meet Up site for .lots of information and comments from both members and non members.

I hope to see you soon at one of our meetings soon.

Judo ‘Tournoi Europeen’ Dunkirk, France 12th & 13th May 2007

By Laurie

What a great weekend in France. Our French hosts welcomed us and extended their hospitality to us as usual. We went to Dunkirk with one junior team and one senior team. Both teams fought well demonstrating good technique and etiquette. The junior team won a bronze medal, which is an excellent result as this was the first international for all the players in the team.
The seniors fought well but sustained two injuries midway through the tournament. Two players down in a five-man team at this level of competition make success all but impossible.
The Junior Team
Jordan Haughey, Liam Rowles, John Hisee, Tomi Borzak and Peter Vincent. (Coach Joe Williams)
The Senior Team
Richard McDonald, Craig Spence, Dave Clark, Ed Trudgell and Omar Asenguah.(Coach Brian Curran)

Midway through the day the tournament was stopped for a special training session for the Juniors. This was delivered by Frederique Jossinet who is a gold medallist in the world team championships and a silver medallist in the both the World Championships and the Olympics.
