SFJI Open Mat Invitation

SFJI is conducting an “Open Mat Invitation Night” every last Friday of each month (or as posted in our home page). We will be inviting members of other dojos in the Bay Area to join us for a free invitational evening. This will enable SFJI members to have a greater variety of experience by practicing with different partners and sharing new techniques. There will be NO mat fees for our guests. Our first open practice evening took place on February 29, 2008 from 7pm – 9pm. Join us in our next event to meet and share techniques with fellow Judokas. We hope to see you in our dojo. Pictures of our Open Mat Sessions can be found in our photo gallery.
