MIDDLETOWN, Calif. – A young local athlete took honors at a Bay Area Judo tournament earlier this month.
Nicholas and Daniel Meyer traveled to Palo Alto Nov. 14 to compete in their first judo tournament.
Nicholas Meyer placed second and received the silver medal for his efforts.
He threw one opponent with Koshi garuma (a headlock type throw) for a wining score of ippon (one point).
There was some added excitement when this opponent continued to attack after the match had ended which resulted in a hansokumake (disqualification).
Daniel Meyer fought well but did not place.
Judo is the most widely practiced martial art in the world. It uses a combination of throwing and pinning techniques for younger players and armlock and choke techniques for older and more experienced competitors.
Middletown Judo Club has regular classes for children ages 5-16 Tuesday and Thursday evenings and midday Sundays.
