This year we return to the parallel clinic track, offering a Nage No Kata clinic alongside a Goshin Jutsu clinic. Our clinicians are Senseis Diane Jackson and Karl Tamai sharing their extensive knowledge of Nage No Kata and Senseis Lisa Capriotti and Rob Gouthro leading Goshin Jutsu. All four clinicians will head to the IJF World Championships a few weeks after our event to again represent the US in international competition!
Saturday begins with check in at 8:30 AM, warm up at 9:00, and competition starting at 9:30 AM. Clinics will immediately follow competition.
We welcome judoka of all ages and ranks as well as all levels of kata experience. Registration is by participant and once registered you can complete in multiple teams for the same registration fee. USJF, USJA, or USA Judo membership is required. You must show a valid membership card on site.
Competition will take place in the following Judo kata:
- Nage No Kata

Please join us in the Nation’s Capital for a day of competition and learning. This year’s venue is the Edgewood Arts Center dance/performance space in the Brookland Arts District.
