Excitement prior to the Dutch Championships Judo!

Next weekend it is finally time! The early  highlight of the new season is starting. On the 29th & 30th of September judokas from all over the Netherlands are coming to the Topsportcentrum Almere to fight for the titles in 7 weight classes per gender. In the mix: 3 of our judokas who want to show their best judo! On Saturday Paula Borgonje, who was a little unsatisfied with her performance and a 2nd place at the NKT, will fight in the category -57kg. A sore foot that held her back is now fully recovered and thus is the motto: full steam ahead in Almere! Rick Nieters will fight one day later in the category -81kg. After an early elimination last year he is eager to try again and put his best judo on the mat. And finally Stefan Sulkers will fight on the same day in the category -90kg aiming to start where he left off after his fantastic 3rd place at the NKT. All 3 Judokas are excited and hope for a lot of Mattekloppers support of current and old members, thus if you are in the Netherlands and do not have any plans for upcoming weekend then come to Almere for exciting judo, thrilling matches and to scream our Judokas to victory of course.

Furthermore we would like to mention the names of our training partners from Veendam who also qualified themselves. Kim Smit, Anniek Potze and Ingrid Engwerda: we wish you a lot of success this weekend!

Ne-Waza Clinic

One week ago the Judokas of our club came together to enjoy a Ne-waza clinic of Niels Evers from Amserdam. Niels is not only a dutch champion in BJJ and Ne-Waza in his weight class but also member of the winning Mattekloppers team that triumphed at the International Judo tournament in Sheffield. He showed a lot of useful techniques on the ground and was able to give detailed tips and tricks to our members.

Niels we enjoyed your clinic and the after-training karaoke very much and are looking forward to see you on the mat on the 9th of June at our Lustrum tournament!
