David Springhall – Guest Judo Coach

UCC Judo Club were delighted to welcome David Springhall and Liam Donoghue from Cork School of Judo down to UCC Judo to coach one of our sessions. Each coach you encounter in Judo will have his or her own approach to Judo and it’s great to see things from other peoples perspective.

David and Liam concentrated a lot on grip fighting at the very beginning of the fight and a few different moves to do straight off the bat. He then proceeded to show us some of his ground work techniques including a rear naked choke when you have the back, which I’m sure no one is going to forget in a hurry!

Cork School of Judo train on a Tuesday night at 8pm in Cobh Community Centre and everyone is more than welcome to join up!
