Upcoming.... 


On Friday I interviewed Ken & Malcolm of the book "Creative Teaching for Judo" for www.thejudopodcast.eu which went really well, despite some phone problems.

I shall edit it this week and try and get it online for next weekend.

Next weekend I have been invited to teach again in Gosport/Portsmouth, which shall be fun. It is another English and French session, I understand that this one has more seniors than last weekends awesome session with all those kids.

This weekend I was supposed to attend a session with Andrew Moshanov, unfortunately I was unable to make it and am sat in the sun on a lovely evening instead, wondering how Mike got on in his competition.

I have also updated www.judo4parents.com with a new article on what to look for in a Judo club. And added the feed from that site to www.planetjudo.com and of course adding a post here at www.judocoach.com

Guest coach for 3 clubs! 


Saturday morning was a great for me, I coached a session for a friendship visit from a French Judo Club to two local English clubs.

Judo Club Audrieu was visiting the Gosport Judo Club and Holbrook Judo Clubs over near Portsmouth. (Last year these clubs visited them in France.

I was invited, to show something "a little different" and hopefully that was the result. I really enjoyed it, it was much bigger than I thought it would be 60 rather than maybe 20 people.

I did the now infamous "Boing Boing" warm up. I also included the Dinky Do - Dinky Da Uchi Mata and obviously lots of other stuff. Including the "mental" stuff around entering the mat area and so forth I did with the Navy all that time ago.

It was great fun with the youngsters, I enjoyed it more than you can imagine!

I've been invited to coach another guest visit in a couple weeks, also in Gosport. So hopefully that means I did a good job on Saturday, not just had a good time.

Anyway... Thanks to everyone who was there, and for being invited to coach, it was a pleasure!

Another podcast in the works. 


It's late here (very), but I just wanted to update to say that I have just finished recording a new podcast with Martin Bregman & Mike Darter all about refereeing.

It was a great fun to record and will be available from www.thejudopodcast.eu this weekend under the title "The Dark side of the force" or "Shooting players", I havn't decided which. ;)

Bon Jour.... 


Oh boy, I have been invited to coach a French team visiting here in the UK this Saturday prior to a friendly team match.

Must get the French phrase book out.

Looking forward to taking this session I have been asked to teach, partly because I was asked to coach because apparently I can offer "something different".

Not sure it's a complement, but I will assume it is. :)

So now I am going to have to deliver on that expectation, oh no!
Should be a laugh, there is a social afterwards, that should be good. If anyone is in Portsmouth this weekend let me know, I am sure you'd be welcome!

EJU Moscow Super World Cup - Free Video Stream 


Forwarded to me today:
----
Dear Fellow Judoka,

We need your help!! Super World Cup will be for FREE

As you know, the European Judo Union has been working diligently on
broadcasting LIVE the major EJU events over our homepage for the price of 2 euro. We have decided to broadcast the SUPER WORLD CUP from Moscow for FREE!!

We would like to ask for your support, in promoting the broadcast of the Super World Cup from Moscow. Please post news about this on your club website as soon as possible moreover that its FREE, including that the SWC may be viewed live for FREE, at www.eujudo.com. Also if you could inform all your Judoka it would be very helpful.

This project has and is currently yielding a significant loss, however we hope to have the sufficient number of visitors to be able to broadcast it for FREE entirely from this moment forward. This is not possible however if we cannot reach the sufficient number of viewers, so PLEASE work diligently to broadcast this information to all your judo Networks, especially in England, so we can achieve this goal for judo, and provide FREE all the judo tournaments.

To give our fellow judoka the pleasure of viewing judo, as well as a preview of the video quality, we will be broadcasting videos from the previous tournaments that will be viewable for FREE at www.eujudo.com.

There will be three broadcasts every day, so go to the homepage for
the schedule. Please be sure to add this information on your website AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

With your help and the help of your federation we can make JUDO
available FREE OF CHARGE.

We would like to wish you and your federation the best, and to thank you, in advance, for your assistance towards judo.

Kind Regards,

Office of the President
European Judo Union
