Judo National Champions 2015

judo nationals 2015I’m happy to say that the UCLU Jiu Jitsu Club has, once again, won the National Randori Competition hosted by the Jitsu Foundation.  I think this is the 16th national competition the club has won — eleven judo comps and five atemi style comps.  Whatever the number, it’s a lot, and it’s a sign that the club is thriving.  Well done to all who took part.

Suffragette jiu jitsu

Here’s an excerpt from The One Show, with Mary Petty Sensei and UCL’s instructor, James Garvey Sensei, in the unusual role of Bad Cop.  Two good throws at the end, so it’s worth wading through the beard discussion.
