What is Judo


Judo translates as 'the gentle way.' The object of Judo is to throw your opponent flat on their back with impetus, or secure a hold down for 25 seconds. In addition, Seniors learn strangulation techniques and arm lock techniques which can also win a contest outright.


The style of Judo taught at the USR is based upon Kodokan Judo. Beginners are required to obtain a BJA licence, complete the beginners’ course, and attend a grading which is held on the last Sunday of every month. After this grading is complete students can progress at their own pace and will grade again when they are ready to do so. 


We begin every class with a warm up and then push ups to streghthen the upper body and get students used to getting up off the floor over and over again. Then we practise break falls. These are a key part of judo and even seasoned black belts must practise this ritual every time they train. 

Students are then separated into ability level groups to focus on the techniques that are appropriate for their level. A teacher will over see each group to maintain learning and safety. 

Gradings this Saturday.

Make sure you bring your licenses and grading fee of £25.

Sports Betting Warning

Sports betting can be addictive. It can give you a real buzz when you hit a winner and chasing that buzz can be addictive. Don’t get sucked into this trap. Stay safe and if you must bet, bet wisely. One way you can get the buzz of gambling but without risking any money. Is matched betting. This is an amazing way to make money from risk free gambling.

Basically you place 2 bets on the same event, 1 to win and 1 to lose. Therefore you can’t lose. You break even but by taking advantage of free bet offers you can make a profit. Bookies will give you a free bet for placing bets. Usually this is very high risk as there is a chance your qualifying bet will lose but by doing the matched betting method you are getting rid of the risk and getting the free bet for free. Once you have a free bet you can then safely punt it and get that same gambling buzz, if you win then great you have made some money if you don’t then you have lost absolutely nothing.

You can also lock in a profit from every free bet for that you will need to learn how to lay off free bets using a service like odds monkey. There is a full review of their service here.

Ignore the fake reviews from profit accumulator as they are false. It is a very good service and one I myself am a member of. If you need more information on matched betting or feel you have a problem with gambling then please talk to me at the club.
