  • Select "[edit]" to the left of the particular day to which you want to add your name (you do not need to register with this website).
  • Put your name, with an asterisk (*) in front (so it displays it in an easily readable list), in the appropriate category for each day.
  • If you are the first person to put your name down for a new date, please change the date and delete any previous names and notes from all categories.
  • Do not go any further out than one week.

Remember, the only way this will work is if people make the effort to keep their status continually updated!

Please update no later than 4 pm on the day of that particular class.

Demo 11/12/09 (8:00-??:?? PM)


  • Will take 30 minutes to an hour, probably under 45 min.
  • I'm thinking somewhere between 7 and 10 PM, but I need to know when people can come first.
-- Edit: Decided on 8 PM for the sake of making the flyer. (Which is only going around my dorm, so it should be a pretty small group.)
  • It'll be in the lounge of Okada, which is a dorm in Wilbur. I can provide maps/give directions/guide people.
  • Please add yourself even if you're not yet sure you can make it. If enough people show an interest, especially higher belts, I'll plan to rent a crash pad for the demo.


  • Natalie (class until 6:05, but good for any time after that)
  • Keith (I should be good starting anytime during that block)

Considering Attending

  • Hamlet (Maybe)
  • Jesse
  • Jared (will make a sincere effort to attend)

Upcoming Tests

  • All white belts - early December
  • Brian (blue) - mid to late November


Add drills that you know to the following list.

  • Do any technique left-sided
  • Ukemi
    • barrier rolls
      • over people on all fours (start out with one person, add more as necessary ... advanced belts should be able to do 4 people)
      • practice for front flip by rolling off back of one person
      • over a staff (raise height the more advanced the person)
    • weapon pick-up rolls
      • use knife, gun, club, and staff
      • make sure to pick up knife by handle end, not blade end
      • make sure to pick up staff with one hand up and one hand down
      • practice picking up weapons with rolling/supporting hand and with the other hand
    • rolls while holding a weapon (especially staff)
    • forward rolls coming up facing forwards and backwards
    • laying on your back, practice side breakfalls by lifting hips and going back and forth quickly to each side
    • front flip
      • prepare by doing barrier rolls off back (see above)
      • practice from wrist twist, inside armtwist, and rear otoshi
      • make sure tori helps the uke around by pulling hard, especially for those who are still learning it
  • Kicking
    • mawashi geri (attacking to the side without the big hip windup): two people stand side-to-side in a horse stance facing opposite ways at kicking distance range and take turns kicking each other's stomachs. Make sure to turn back heel and to point knee at target. Do not kick to the groin! Uke needs to make sure to exhale and tighten up stomach on impact. More advanced students should be able to take and receive harder and harder kicks. Idea of drill is too not only practice balance and technique, but to practice distancing and the feeling of an impact, both for the receiver and the kicker. Make sure kicker attacks with top of foot (though advanced students can try pulling toes back and striking with the ball of the foot). Keep arms and hands in a fighting stance protecting your face.
    • mae geri (thrust): two people face each other in the same-leg-forward front stance and take turns kicking each other in stomach with a thrusting mae geri. Switch feet each time by bringing kicking foot back down in front of supporting foot and then drawing support foot back in preparation for receiver the other person's kick and then kicking with the other foot. Make sure kicker strikes with ball of foot. Keep arms and hands in a fighting stance protecting your face.
    • yoko geri: two people stand as in the mawashi geri drill, but this time they execute yoko geri to the area under the armpit of other person. Receiver needs to make sure to raise arm so the kicker can place the kick properly. Make sure to strike with the edge of the foot, not the heel.
    • ushiro geri: two people stand facing each other in the same-leg-forward front stance. Kicker crosses forward foot over to other side of body, spins, and executes ushiro geri to receivers stomach. Kicker must make sure to look at target and not strike the groin! After kicking, reverse kicking foot's motion and return to front stance with same leg still forward.
  • Blocking drill where you try to tap the other person's shoulder.
  • Straight right into nagashi/soto ude uke while advancing across the mat. Can add follow-up strikes as well.
  • 90 sec throws, 15 sec rest. Advanced students can do this with sacrifice throws as well. Obviously this can only be introduced for whitebelts who are already comfortable falling/throwing osoto.
  • Blind attack: Peter did this a couple of times: half of the group is waiting to be attacked, eyes closed. As soon as they are attacked (attack specified in advance, only contact attacks like front choke, rear hug etc.) they open their eyes and throw the uke a previously specified throw (osoto, ogoshi) The point is not fighting, but training responses without anticipating, and non-visual perception (you'll notice whether or not somebody is moving towards you). Obviously, constraints apply for whitebelts.
  • Moving each other around from judo clinch while one person has eyes closed. Good for balance perception and safe.
  • Uchikomi: 9 entries to a particular throw, throw the 10th time. Idea is to work on kuzushi and setting up the throw.
  • Att. front choke drill: uke is standing quite close to the tori and pushes them at their chest/shoulders, like somebody instigating a fight might do. The tori can let them do it a few times, then, when ready, parry the attack. For more advanced belts, the uke is closer and can attack quicker. This is how we should be attacking on the charts when "att. front choke" is called.

  • Drunken Master 2 (-Jared, US released as 'the Legend of Drunken Master')
  • The Jerk (-Adam, US released as 'The Jerk'. Hard core Kung Fu and Judo Action, BABY. Seriously though, there is a cameo appearance by "Judo" Gene LaBell. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCxMdRYeP0Q )
