Exclamation mark Blog by Lance Wicks



One of my kids sessions at OKCDT. Oklahoma, USA. 

Hi everyone,
whilst here in the USA I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work with both Juniors and Seniors at OKCDT in Oklahoma City, USA ( ).

Below is a video of me working with the kids, if you have watched the clip I posted yesterday of me working with the adults, you will hopefully see that this is the exact same content.

What I tried to do was make it applicable to the juniors whilst retaining the core fundamental principles I was hoping to express. You be the judge.

The video below is also available at .

Once again, it was a pleasure and an honour to be invited to Oklahoma to celebrate the opening of OKCDT's amazing new Dojo. The chance to share some ideas with the kids and adults was a real privilege. The OKCDT members are amazingly welcoming and kind!

I will definitely be back!!

Hi Lance,

I've been following your blog.

Thank you for the excellent look into how training methods are changing in judo.

Your insight regarding teaching methods for children was great to watch. As a former instructor in striking arts, I know that often times good martial artists are not automatically good instructors.

Thanks again,

Joe Glimp
