HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SENSEI BOB
Yorkville's most established judo club, the Yorkville Judo Club, had another stellar day at the Loras College Judo Tournament in Dubuque, Iowa on Saturday March, 19th.
Yorkville Judo sent four competitors to the event and brought home four medals, three gold and one bronze. Winning his division was Ian Kiilsgaard age 10, Andrew Undesser age 11 and Rick UndesserIV age 14. Nate Perez, age 12 earned a bronze. Yorkville's win totals for the event were outstanding winning nine of eleven matches, most by a sudden victory throw or pin.
"These young men really represented our club well today. We have been working on applying our technique in competitive settings and they really showed that they are champions." said Yorkville Sensei Rick Undesser.
In addition to winning his division, the younger Rick Undesser also fulfilled Judo's fundamental principal, "Mutual Benefit and Welfare" by volunteering to serve as a referee at the event. David Malek, chair of Midwestern Judo Referee Commission stated, "I want to see Rick refereeing at the Olympics someday!"
The Yorkville Judo, located in downtown Yorkville, is open to everyone ages six and up. The first month trial is free. Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 6:00pm.
