What a blast!

At the judo class tonight we started a group of six kids ranging from 4 to 7 years of age. What a blast! We warmed up, did some basic ukemi, and practiced some kneeling knockdown (freeform suwari nagekomi - taking turns pushing the partner down however you can). This led to opportunities to work on throwing and falling principles while getting the kids into something like randori right off the bat. For standing work we had a rousing session of tow stomp randori. I plan to spend a lot of time for the forseeable future working on ground mobility, ukemi, kneeling randori, and standing combatives games (i.e. tug of war, judo sumo, toestomp randori, etc...).
