Seiwakan Judojo will be hosting our annual Judo Tournament on January 18th, 2014 at our regular location in Portland, Oregon. This tournament is designed to be a “learners” or “development” tournament with an emphasis on encouraging newer judoka to participate. It is for non-Dan grades and participants 13 years of age and older. This is a great opportunity for newer judoka to test their skills and enhance their learning through competition in a friendly and small tournament environment.
In the spirit of making this a learners tournament the entry fees are kept intentionally modest (at $15), and we feed the competitors after the event as well. An opportunity to workout and review with competitors their successes and challenges immediately follows the tournament.
Details and necessary paperwork can be found here. Don’t forget to register online!
Welcome to Seiwakan Judojo’s website, teaching Kodokan Judo in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland, Oregon, since 2000. The website is new. It is not pretty yet. But it will be. Just like a new white belt trying Judo, development will take time, mistakes, and the willingness to fall down and get back up again.
Please bear with us during that time. In the meantime, please enjoy this demonstration of the potential effectiveness of Judo against a striking art.
