A good day at the office

The Hampshire Judo organised event on Sunday 7 July saw Court Lane players medal in all three categories.

Jonty Bassil finally secured his first gold medal in the men’s 1st kyu and above competition. Three fine ippons also saw him pick up 30 points towards his Dan grade.

Brother and sister Ben and Chloe Lymer both fought in the junior red & yellow belt competition. This was Ben’s first event, and he did well to hold his own in a surprisingly aggressive group. Chloe battled back from a loss in her first fight to collect a silver medal like her brother.

Michael Churcher continued his transition across to adult judo competing in the men’s blue and under competition. He beat off a strong challenge from a Scorpion player, throwing and holding for a cumulative score. Osaka’s Harrison Grist was once again Mike’s nemesis, leaving Mike in a well deserved 2nd place.

Well done everyone.

Great day on the mat

Summer Fair

Once again we made our annual appearance at the school summer fair. With ALL displays being programmed indoors this year, we opted for a smaller mat and a reduced number of players compared to previous years.

A brilliant, slightly ad libbed demo was provided by Kev Jones, Chloe Lymer, Maya and Mieszko Polak and Amy Roberts.

Chloe, Maya and Amy also demonstrated some of the self defence movements from Goshin-Jitsu, with Tony as uke.

We’d also like to say thank you to current and previous club members who watched, and helped to put down and put away mats – Toby Winfield, Ben Lymer and Sophie Rogerson.

Kent International

Michael Churcher was our sole representative at this years’ Kent International.

Making his debut at his new weight of -73kg (and only by a few grams…), Michael showed that all his recent hard work has been paying off, returning with a bronze medal.

Ippons galore at Hampshire Closed

Players who train at the Club enjoyed a great day of Judo at Saturday’s Hampshire Closed.

Chloe Lymer was the first to fight, at -32kg. She was narrowly defeated in her first contest, but stormed back with an ippon scoring seoi nage in her next contest. A win in her third contest put her into top spot in her group of 4 and secured her a GOLD medal.

Jack Rogerson made his first judo outing in a couple of years. Jack fought his way out of his pool in 2nd place to enter the knock out stages, with some great ippon scores from both tachi waza and ne waza. In the final four, Jack was thrown for ippon and had to settle for bronze at -46kg.

Our last contestant was Michael Churcher, at -66kg. Michael made an emphatic start, throwing his first opponent for ippon. He followed this up with another two great maximum scoring throws to set up a deciding contest against Osaka’s Harrison Grist. Mike defeated Grist in last year’s tournament, but it was Grist’s turn to dominate this year, leaving Mike to settle for a well deserved silver.

Coaches and players from the Club also participated in the training session held with the visiting players from Jersey, to round off a memorable weekend of Judo.

Isla continued to impress with her transition into more adult judo, winning a bronze medal at the South Coast Minors, Pre-Cadet and Cadet Open on 18 November.

Other players in action included regular Club visitors Michael Churcher and Chloe Lymer, who both returned with bronze medals.

Well done everyone, keep up all the hard work.

Proud day for Court Lane at Hampshire Open

An exciting day of judo at the Hampshire Open saw Isla and Jonty make the transition from junior to adult judo.

Up first however was Jon Luijken, making his competition debut at -46kg. Whilst there was to be no medal on this occasion, he made a determined effort and showed great promise over his three fights.

Jonty, who recently competed in the regional schools qualifier, fought in a packed -71kg category. 17 players delivered some quality judo, with Jonty right in the thick of it. 3 wins from 5 contests – from throws, hold down and an opportunistic arm lock – saw him clinch a well deserved 5th place.

Isla was the lowest graded adult in the women’s -63kg category. Undaunted she delivered her usual all out attacking performance and was rewarded with a bronze medal.

Regular club visitors Michael Churcher and Harry Hopkins were also in action.

Harry competed in the same weight group as Jonty, delivering a lightning fast ippon win in his first fight. He wasn’t able to repeat on this in his next two fights, but still delivered a credible performance.

Michael Churcher had the misfortune to fight his Osaka nemesis Harrison Grist in his first fight. Despite having just competed in a 14 minute golden score contest, Grist still had enough left to secure revenge over Mike for his victory in the Hampshire Closed. Ultimately Mike secured a bronze medal in the junior -66kg.

A great day for the club, with junior players making a strong impact in the adult categories.

Hampshire Closed success for Isla

Two players represented the Club at today’s Hampshire Closed, in Aldershot.

Kaiden Southey delivered his best competition performance to date, beating players graded a whole belt or more higher than him, to reach the 2nd round of pools in his weight.

Isla Savellis-Fry proved that her last competition medal was no fluke, with a totally focussed performance in the girls -63kg. 4 wins out of 5 secured her a silver medal, and an invitation to train with the Hampshire squad – the first Court Lane female player to receive such an invitation.

Well done to both players, great results in our 25th year!
