Just a quick heads up, this upcoming weekend we’ll be hosting a beginner level Judo seminar with Miss Kelly Franquemont.
(Pic below is Miss Kelly, and it’s a funny pic too)
This seminar will focus of takedowns using the gi/clothes. The takedowns will be very much on the beginner level but even if your advanced this is a seminar for you.
Should you take this seminar? Look, this is the thing:
Do you need takedowns to come out alive in a self defense situation? Maybe, maybe not, BUT….does it make you much more likely to come out alive? Will it only help you to defend yourself better?
YES, 100% YES! THE TAKEDOWNS USED IN JUDO CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE AND ARE VERY USEFUL.
Also, I should point this out, Judo is fun! Forget the self defense and winning tournaments stuff, Judo is a good time and very fun stuff.
So yeah, come out and take the Judo seminar. I guarantee you’ll learn new things and have a blast. Below are the details:
Miss Kelly Franqumont Judo seminar for beginners (basics and fundamentals will be greatly stressed)
March 3rd, 12pm for kids and 2:30pm for CAP students (Gold, Platinum and Titanium)
$10 for CAP/BBC students and $20 for intro and non enrolled students
Children’s seminar is 2 hours long and adults are an hour to an hour in a half depending on the group.
Keep in mind that March 3rd is the official 4 year anniversary date for Ivey League Mixed Martial Arts! So we’ll be doing some special stuff for the students and friends that attend the seminars….trust me it’s going to be a good time.
Below is a cool video of a basic Judo demo event that U-Penn did. This video at least gives you an idea of simple Judo tactics and training.
