Results etc. Newsworthy happenings.

Website update

Big thanks to Super Dad John Rogerson who successfully oversaw the migration of our web pages from one server to another yesterday.

This has also allowed us to upgrade to a more secure programming language.

Hopefully no one was inconvenienced by a temporary break in service.

John has also fixed the annoying “test page” message that people were reporting when visiting the site.

Hopefully from now all systems GO!

Michael takes on the best in the country

Michael was our sole representative at this year’s National Championships, following in the footsteps of Brett Caswell, Andy Gould, Lewis Dolman and Ben Garside. Michael went toe to toe with those seeking to establish themselves as the best in the country.

Despite having fought for most of the year at -73kg, Michael managed to slip in to the -66kg category. This category was made up of 48 players, so a real test of character!

A bye in the first round secured automatic progression to the second round. A loss here by two waza-aris put Michael in to the repechage.

A great ippon throw to win secured progression through to the next contest, where Michael was ultimately armlocked by a Dan grade player.

Overall, a very credible performance from Michael, with a lot of positives and some areas to improve on ready for next year.

Busy weekends bring more success for Chloe and Michael

Chloe Lymer and Michael Churcher have been busy on the competition trail again.

Both Michael and Chloe competed in the South Coast Pre Cadet and Cadet Open.

This provided a tough challenge for Chloe, against some very aggressive competitors. Chloe scored a fantastic win against one of her Hampshire rivals, but, at the end of the pool, results were level between three of the four competitors.

Consequently, Chloe had to refight two of her three matches, to determine 2nd, 3rd and 4th place. This time Chloe delivered an even more emphatic victory (16 seconds) to secure a well deserved 3rd place.

Disappointingly Michael wasn’t given the same chance to shine, with a much smaller entry in his category than we were expecting. However, you can only fight who is put in front of you, and Michael returned with another silver medal to add to his growing collection.

Chloe then travelled to High Wycombe to compete in the NHC qualifier for the British Schools. An on fire Chloe swept her way to victory, defeating both an orange belt and a green belt (two whole belts higher!) on her way to a gold medal.

More success for Chloe

Chloe Lymer maintained her run of success when she joined Holbrook Judo Club at a recent event run by Southampton Samurai judo club.

Three wins in ne-waza secured Chloe a well deserved gold medal. Even more impressive as Chloe doesn’t usually like groundwork.

Chloe will be competing this weekend along side Michael Churcher, at the Sussex Precadet and Cadet open

Medals keep rolling in

It may have been half term, but Court Lane players have been putting the miles in on the competition circuit.

Hampshire Open

Chloe Lymer and Michael Churcher both competed in this well attended event.

Chloe added another bronze to her collection, scoring from her favourite throw tai-otoshi and also winning a contest in ne-waza; an area of judo that Chloe has been working hard to improve, so a great result all round.

Chloe’s medal was presented by 9th Dan Dave Starbrook MBE OLY, who won Britain’s first Olympic Judo medals in 1972 and 1976. Starbrook had delivered a masterclass and coaching workshop to Hampshire players the day before.

Mike was also in action, contesting the senior weight groups. Mike gave a good account of himself in a category dominated by 1st kyu and Dan grade players, but was unable to progress to the medal stages on this occasion.

Welsh Pre-Cadet and Cadet Open

As part of his build up to the National Championships, Mike competed in yesterday’s Welsh Open. This was as a bench marking exercise to identify the level of competition and areas where Mike needs to improve prior to entering the Nationals.
