As you know, we held a Yoroshi Hoodie Design competition. Seven submissions battled for a place on our new hoodie, and only one of them has won. The winning design is by… (drumroll, please) Nathalie Vis! You can order your copy here for only €13,-.

“Dick-like” Jiu-Jitsu training by Roy

As already mentioned in our last announcement, in the series of Dick-like trainings, we want to organise a Jiu-Jitsu training as well: and here it is! On Monday May 25 at 20:00, Roy will give us a Jiu-Jitsu training, with some Jiu-Jitsu exercises and some Judo as well. For the latter a budo belt (or a rope of comparable length and strength) is needed. Wearing a Gi is not necessary.

If you have any questions about the online trainings or ideas or suggestions you can always send us a message! After the training we usually hang on for a chat, if you want to join then this is of course also possible!

You can joint the training on Zoom by clicking here.

Hope to see you again on Monday!

Online “Dick-like” Punch and Kick training by Ruben

We hope all of you are still healthy and enjoying your home life as far as this is possible!

As our first online training by Ruben was a success, we will organise another training on the evening of Monday May 18 from 20:00 till about 20:50. Based on the feedback and experiences of last training we set up a training program together with Dick and Ruben. We will organise a series of “Dick-like” lessons, with each having a slightly different content. This lesson of Ruben will be Krav/Karate oriented, but we are also busy with the organisation of a training with Jiu-Jitsu or even Taekwondo content!

For the training we recommend:

  • some space around you for punches and kicks
  • sport shoes (these are not necessary, e.g. if you don’t want to disturb your neighbours)
  • a (yoga) mat (this is nice for some of the exercises)

If you have a (un)experienced roommate or partner that is interested to join the training, don’t hesitate to invite them! The training will be of intermediate level, but a beginner is welcome to try out the techniques as well.

You can join the training on Zoom by using this link.

If you have suggestions or ideas you can always send us a message! After the training we can again hang out for a chat (or eat our dinners, as happened after last training), so that we will have a sort of monthly drink.

Hope to see you on Monday!

Live training by Ruben and practice videos

We hope all of you are as healthy as ever and not too bored studying at home.

To reduce the homesickness for the dojo, our very own Ruben Greve will give a live training on Tuesday April 28 at 9pm! Ruben practices full contact karate at a high level and is often doing Krav as well. If there are any techniques or other things you would like to learn in such training please let us know! This is an experiment for us as well and we would like to investigate the possibilities together, so all input is welcome! You can join the training on Zoom by clicking here.

To help you stay on top of your game we also compiled a list of useful training videos for all Yoroshi sports together with Dick!

You can check out some home exercise videos to follow along with trainings at any level. And of course, there are the Kata videos on the Yoroshi site.

The last video is Shotokan instead of Wado Ryu, but most movements are the same. If you find a good Wado Ryu training online please share it with us!

Krav Maga
Similar to Karate there are some follow-along videos for a full training.

Some techniques are difficult to do properly at home, although you could always borrow your roommate. None the less there are still a lot of things you can practice in the living room.

Jiu Jitsu
For Jiu Jitsukas both some of the Judo as some of the Krav Maga techniques can be done at home. Furthermore, there is this compilation of locks that you can try out of you have someone nearby:

Feel free to share more videos if you have something useful, we will place this list in the public Yoroshi drive folder (for members only) as well so that you can easily find them!

Stay healthy and hopefully we will see you soon!
