AS OF TONIGHT, OUR JUDO CLASSES WILL BE ON HOLD UNTIL AT LEAST THE END OF THE MONTH. KEEP CHECKING HERE PRIOR TO APRIL TO SEE WHEN WE WILL START UP CLASSES AGAIN. THE CONCERNS OVER THE VIRUS AND POSSIBILITIES OF PASSING ON THE VIRUS TO OTHERS IN CLASS THEN ON TO PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF JUDO HAS LED TO THIS DECISION.
As of this afternoon, the ILH Judo Tournament scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled due to CoronaVirus concerns.
The tournament scheduled for this coming Sunday, March 8, has been POSTPONED due to heightened concerns over the Coronavirus.
More info for a new date will be posted later.
By the way, in case you are wondering what happened to our mats for practice, a lot of the mats got damaged during our Holiday Break! Water from the heavy rains got into our storage area and created mold on the back side of the upper mats in the stack. Those mats have been discarded and new ones will be ordered by the YMCA. They have put that high up on their priority list of things to purchase!
Congratulations to our competitors at yesterday's JBBAH Judo Tournament held on Maui for the first time. Jordan Morifuji played several exhibition matches and also won his weight division! You can click on Jordan's name below to see the video of the matches in his division. Kalika and Kairyn Kaga both had no competitors in their division but had some exhibition matches also. Dayton Pa and Starr Tothman-Ramos both had two tough matches in their weight division. Just over 70 competitors showed up on Maui from the Big Island, Oahu and the Maui Clubs.
Sensei Mark was there to guide our team and coach our matches. Sensei Scott was there and helping to Referee the matches for the day. Sorry but Sensei Scott was not in our Team Pictures because he was meeting with other Referees after the tournament.
