Had a great Judo for Jiu-Jitsu session last night where all participants really enjoyed the exposure to the sister art. For some it was the first attempt at pure tachiwaza (standing practice) and for others it is something that they practice regularly but for all it was a great class which focused on grip fighting, footwork, hip movement and off balancing amoungst others.
A great deal of fine details and strategies were covered by 2nd Dan Black belt Steve Garrett from St. Katherines Judo Kwai whos talent for teaching and instruction was clear to see with smiles all round proving that the Judo bug is very catching! Many thanks once again to Steve for sharing his knowledge with us.
If you’re interested in training Judo please check out our local Judo club St. Katherines Judo Kwai and you may see some faces you already know as we have lots of guys training both Judo with Jiu-Jitsu already. I’m sure this recent Judo seminar will be the first of many as Judoka & Jiu-Jitsoka share, develop and grow together in Luton & Dunstable.
