International Success in Greece

 
Judoka the Sobell Judo Club recently travelled with team JFAUK to the 2019 Miyazaki Cup held in Thessaloniki, Greece. 
 
Held annually, the event daws a plethora of European Judoka from the U.K, Greece, Bulgaria, Algeria and Macedonia amongst other countries. Differing from mainstream judo events, this event is run under a traditional rule set meaning that leg grab techniques are permitted and lots of emphasis is placed on ne-waza groundwork fighting. 
 
This year, Sobell achieved 1 gold, 4 silver and 3 bronze medals. Silver medals came from Sam Sampson (-83kg), Fionn Rowan (-71kg), Alex Charalambous (-66kg), Sasha McClean (-91kg) and bronze medals were achieved by Lucian Buleandra (-79kg), Mikey Barton (-91kg) and Hannah Chesham (-78kg). Finishing the day was a gold medal from Sam Sampson who entered the open-weight category and came away with first place, despite facing Judoka nearly twice his size! 
 
Also attending was Alexis Bardini (-75kg) and Karl Summerbell, a para-athlete who entered the able bodied category (-71kg). However, tough draws saw these judoka exit the tournament in the opening rounds. Regardless, both fought extremely well and have gained valuable experience for their next event. Also with the team was judoka from Club Judoka in Worthing and Dundee Ippon Judo Club in Scotland.

October Randori Session

On Sunday 28th October the Sobell Judo Club and JFAUK celebrated world judo day, on the anniversary of Jigoro Kano’s birthday by hosting one of our regular Randori sessions at the Sobell Judo Club.

 
Consisting of 3 hours of judo gymnastics, movement exercises, superb judo and challenging strength and conditioning; the session truly gave each its participants a test of not only skill, but will and determination to see it through to the end.
 
The tatami was shared by judoka both young and old, novice and experience, giving every participant a varied practice that helped them to further their judo development.
 
Thank you to all who travelled to the dojo to take part in the session. Our next randori will be held at the end of November so keep your eyes on our page to find out when the date is announced. Video coming shortly.
