Upcoming tournaments for Invermere Judo club

Season underway for local club

Submitted by Coach Herman Mauthner, Invermere Judo

Yes I’m very late with Judo Jottings. As time goes by, I had a pleasant nudge when Graham’s family sent me these pictures. Graham Norquay, a member of the Invermere Judo Club, is now a carded athlete, training in Lethbridge as a high performance athlete. Graham, together with the B.C. Team, studied Judo in Japan last year. In Dec. 2019 he also will be attending a competition and training camp in Aix en Provence in France. As his sensei, I like to commend Graham for his dedication and commitment and the same time a big “thank you” to his local supporters.

In the meantime, the Invermere judo Club had its digital registration in early September at the Columbia Valley Community Centre.

Monday classes: 5 – 5:45 p.m. (2013 born); 5:45 – 6:45 p.m. (2010-12 born); 6:45 – 8 p.m. (2008 born); Wednesday class 6:30 – 8 p.m. (2008 born and earlier). More information available at invermerejudo.com. On September 21st, senseis Mark Digney, Bob Gadsby, Bill Rainbow and myself went to Fernie to a Kata practise and a General Meeting of the Kootenay Clubs.

October 26th is a Petit Samurai Regional Chiai and Interclub-Randori competition in Revelstoke and the Invermere judo Clubs plans to attend.

November 2nd is the Creston Judo Club tournament. This is the Zone 1 2020 Winter Games Qualifier and sanctioned by B.C. Judo. At the present the Invermere Judo Club has approximaetly 40 members.

See you on the tatame.
