Training in Fiji
While I am Fiji for the 40th reunion of my high school I decided to visit the South Pacific Judo Centre in Nabua. This gym is run by the Takayawa family and has produced many international level judo players.
Training was hard in the heat and humidity and I was a little scared when I saw the climbing ropes hanging from the ceiling as I had seen a high school squad in Japan go up and down the rips for 10 minutes for warm up. In the end we didn't use them but we did do;
Warm up exercises
Moving uchi komi ending with a throw
4 rounds of newaza
5 rounds of tachiwaza
That was really enough for me, but I'll be back on Thursday.
