Beginners should show up in a long sleeve shirt and sweatpants.
The WWU Judo Club workout schedule is Mondays & Wednesdays from 8-10pm at the Wade King Student Recreation Center, fitness room 201-B.
Practices are held during Fall, Winter and Spring quarters.
Judoka may choose to compete at tournaments typically held on Saturdays throughout the year. We also regularly practice and/or meet with other clubs in the region.
Our practice consists of warm-ups with an emphasis on cardio-vascular training specifically for the sport of Judo. Ukemi (breakfalls) are usually included in this warm-up period. We typically follow these exercises by throwing and/or matwork practice and then finish with randori (free practice).
All members are required to support and encourage each other. Attending Sensei's will monitor the practices and often workout alongside beginners so that advanced advice and instruction can be given.
