Judo 29/12/2012

Very unfortunate that my club for the last 10 years or so, decided to sack and replace the founder. Well, I consider him the founder as he established the club from the dwindling Victoria University dojo. I have frequented this club since the Vic Uni days so feel like a  senior eventhough I only attend a 6 months of the year. I wonder about my relationship with the club in the future. I'm peeved by the insensitivity that demotes a man who has given so much of his life and time to a club. Now a pensioner, he is without official status anymore. Well done lads!

Alas, It is always great to re-engage in the load and throw, as well as trips, reaps and sweeps. Admittedly this new crew aren't as patronising and I get thrown ect. Really need to spend time in Japan to grade as it is becoming a block to my advancement, not being allowed in the higher level class. My knee only dislocated once this year. I'm very particular who I contest in Randori, usually I stress we are not competing but training with intention. The left shoulder is also a bit worst for wearing as I insist to train both sides. I hope I will be able to continue to do so. I'll still keep in touch with my sensie friend!

Siberia here I come for some Systema
