Results of the World Judo Championships, Astana 2015
MALLOY, Marti, 57kg, 5th
On August 26th our friend Mikhail Kozitskiy brought Alexander Mikhaylin (RUS, 100kg) to the Club for a great workout and lesson. Mikhaylin won the 2012 Olympic Silver Medal in London (he lost to Teddy Riner in the finals by shido) and is a multiple times World and European Champion. Later he randoried with anyone who asked him and obligingly threw a few of us with his big ashi waza. He is a true gentleman and great ambassador for Judo.
One of Mikhaylin’s favorite techniques is Yoko gake:
On August 5, Sensei Serge Bouyssou joined our workout at the AC with 25 players from his dojo in Rhode Island, Mayo Quanchi Judo Club. Both his daughter, Katelyn Bouyssou and son Everet Desilets, competed at the last NY Open for Team USA and both are supported by the NYAC. Tomoko Fukumi, 48 kg 2009 World Champion from Japan, was also on the mat. She is the only judoka to have beaten legendary Royko Tani twice. Special thanks to Sensei Teimoc for running a great workout.
