OK folks time to announce that Ojukan will be scheduling a Saturday practice this month!
Saturday, August 20th – 9:00AM
The planned start time is 9:00AM and we’ll be going for a full 2 hours. If you can, please get to the dojo before 9:00, help with the mats if you can, but please do what you can to be ready to go by 9:00AM.
These Saturday practices are special and very much worth every minute.
If you can’t make it there by 9:00, maybe 10:00 instead, that’s fine come on in at 10:00 then. It’s all good. Bring water, it’s a long practice.
If you have any questions or concerns, let us know.
2021 Update: Angel’s Boot Camp has moved on, and this business no longer owns the space. However OJUKAN JUDO is still here! Still the same address, still using the same cool sprung floor for awesome ukemi practice + we have excellent Dollamur mats on top of the sprung floor (https://dollamur.com/ma-mma-roll-mats).

Having recently practiced no-gi Judo, I’m reminded that no-gi Judo can be used to sharpen a judoka’s technique, because without a gi to grip and pull on, focus becomes much more intense on good positioning, good kuzushi, good movement. Everybody should have no-gi in their curriculum. So, having said that, here’s a no-gi tai otoshi, taught by Rick Hawn:
