A new year

With Fresher week, a brand new cohort of students is arriving, beginners and experimented judokas! Our training times have not changed and if you are happy to breakfall, you can join any session!

We will host a taster session on Saturday 8th October, 4:30-7:30pm. This will involve getting on the mat, doing a judo oriented warm-up and some technical exercises. We will get advanced players to demonstrate throws and randori (sparring) that normally constitute usual judo sessions. You don’t need a judo gi for this (but if you have one, do bring it!), only loose clothes that you don’t mind being a bit tear.
Our beginner course will be on in Michealmas term. £35 all included: Judogi (judo uniform), BJA licence and mat fees. Beginners will be able to get the basics of the sport, pass their first grading and start sparring by the end of the term. All members are encouraged to participate in these sessions, especially higher grades to revise the basics and help out with the new-comers. They are the future of the club after all and if they train well, they’ll fast become good randori partners!

CUJC Garden Party – NO TRAINING – Saturday 18th

The CUJC garden party is tomorrow (Saturday 18th) – SO THERE WILL NOT BE TRAINING.
Instead, a BBQ on Jesus green (near the river, close to the tennis courts and the restaurant La Mimosa) from 2pm. Everyone is welcome, partners, children etc.

The club will take care of most things but please bring your drinks and extra food you might want to eat and share like salads, cakes, or extra meat and veg!

If you have a blanket, it could be a good idea to bring it too.

We should have two barbecues going so we should be really efficient!!

Please come along, even if you can’t stay long. It is our last social event of the academic year and it is a good time to chill out and have fun outside of judo.

See you tomorrow!

End of term, Varsity and the Coaches Award.

As Lent draws to a close we recognise the hard work put in by everybody at the club, especially our beginners who have continued for a second term.

Congratulations to Lamberd Beano who won the coaches award for 2016. Having started earlier this year, he competed against Oxford for the Varsity Men’s B team.

Our Women’s team also did a phenomenal job to retain the trophy. The match report can be found here.

We continue training through the breaks so we look forward to seeing you on the mat.
