Chula Vista, CA
23 February, 2012

Spotted at last evening's clinic featuring the lovely Yoko Tanabe were JudoForum members Jerry Hays, PTNippon, Haomaru, Akebono, BillC and BillyMac. Everyone had a great time reviewing some basic but important techniques, the only criticism that could be made was that there were so many enthusiastic judoka in one place that it was difficult to find a landing zone.

Rumor has it that Haomaru might have some pictures from the event, and perhaps a couple more JudoForum members might be spotted in the crowd.

After the event, Akebono, PTNippon, Haomaru and BillC were treated by Heisei's kancho Matt Ozaki to noodles, gyoza and beer for which they were sincerely grateful. Unfortunately BillyMac had to rush home and prevent the start of WWIII, Jerry Hays only stopped the clinic by to deliver yet another load of materials which will be candidates for NBK's library and to say howdy to some old friends ... and this reporter does mean old.

Still not working ... what seems to be working is to post the snaps on another site, then to insert the photo as a link.

Is it me or are the attachments blank?

Yeah, something I've been putting off thinking the admins would fix things. Using flckr links is one easy solution -- I think.

Yes, Alex was there. Don't know Dmitri ... was he the brown belt taking flying lessons from Akebono?

Dimitri is a Ukrainian black belt mid or late 30'ish. He mentioned to me he was injured (knee injury) a few weeks ago so he might not have shown up. But I have to get my knee scoped so I wont be there for awhile either. Nobody ever wants to train with Dimitri because he has very violent judo. Safe though, but clever set ups with aggressive kake. He's never injured anybody though. He grips like a pitbull and has the classic chidaoba/sambo approach. I am probably the only guy who volunteers to randori with him. He's my only source to the old soviet style of judo where I train. I really enjoy training with those two guys the most. Much respect to them.

Fab-man ... were these hyperlinks to web sites? Probably not. If you uploaded them, how big were the files. Were they jpegs?

If you send these to George, he will put them up on the PSJA web site, then you can link from there. Email me with problems or questions.
