A good weekend for Ruskin Judo

This weekend five players from Anglia Ruskin competed in the London area University Championships held at Brunel University. We did well in terms of medals:

Dmitri Galaev – Gold

Ishmael Tappaev – Gold

Mike Stewart – Silver

Steve Squire – Bronze

Josh Plant – Bronze

More importantly the players fought really well, medals are nice but it is far better to see the player implementing the changes we are making to their judo.

On Sunday three players also fought in the Littlport senior championships. Mike Stewart won gold & Steve Squire won silver.

I haven’t got time to go into much detail as I am just heading out to the mighty Camberley JC for their randori night but I have made a short video of some of the ippons. Unfortunately none of Josh’s are on there, they were just too quick, the camera hadn’t started, in fact for one of them they had to restart the clock just to register a time (3sec).

Kakari Geiko

Kakari Geiko is something I have used for sometime. For a long time I didn’t know the Japanese name and just called it situational randori. I use quite a few different situations and have listed some below off the top of my head but would be interested in getting other peoples ideas to see if there are other situation I can develop. Please comment and add you ideas.

  • Last 30 secs (winning, losing, winning/losing by wazari, winning/losing yuko, winning/losing penalties etc)
  • No counters
  • No sutemi waza
  • Edge play (inside/outside etc)
  • Kumikata only (normally include ashiwaza)
  • Defending against drop seoi
  • Attacking ‘off the grip’
  • Defending against a high collar grip
  • Transition

Please add you ideas šŸ™‚
