    World Judo Day - did anyone do something fun?

    So it's, apparently, World Judo Day today (October 28th).

    Did anyone honor / celebrate it, somehow?

    I almost fell out of my recliner when I was taking a nap after dinner. My youngest son decided to capitalize on the opportunity and climb on the top of the chair which had me flipping over backwards. I countered the attempted throw and regained my balance.

    So, I'd say yes.

    I would say this is the best reason anyone should train Judo. Thumbs up!

    I enrolled my 4 year old in Judo and avoided the multiple TKD and Wing Chun (and BJJ) clubs around me.

    Judo saves!

    Close call! _wink_

    To be serious, though, do the BJJ gyms offer kids' classes for 4-year olds? Wow!

    I would say most BJJ gyms in Sweden doesn't have kids' training at all. But Judo clubs certainly have, all of them.

    Any way - seems you have a black belt in parenting.

    Gracie Barra here run 3-5 year old classes. Maybe 5 years ago they didn’t but the demand is there - class sizes and frequency are still a fifth of what TKD and Krotty pull in though.
