Last Saturday, after a two-year pandemic break, the TSV Pattensen judo club championship took place in the KGS hall in the dojo. At 2:15 p.m., a short warm-up session started. Various falling schools, throwing techniques and parts of the Nage-No-Kata were presented to the numerous spectators to applause.
The fights started punctually at 3 p.m. In addition to throwing techniques, judo-appropriate behavior was also evaluated. After that, the parents could find out what their judo kids can do on the mat by participating in a short training session with their judoka. In addition to some warm-up games and judo exercises, the basics of falling and a first stand-floor technique – under one or the other parental bead of sweat – were shown. Shortly thereafter, the award ceremony with certificates and medals began, where Leonard Warkentin was able to achieve the highest number of points.
