Transcript Judo Club Members learn new moves Forget Jet Li and Jackie Chan, Todd Calwell is the real deal. As the chief instructor of the University of Houston Judo Club, Calwell can make grown men cry. He has 24 years of martial arts experience under his multiple-discipline belts, and uses every bit of it to carve the Judo Club into a fighting icon. "We train hard from beginner to advanced fighters to be the best," says Calwell. The Judo Club attended 3 competitions this year in Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston with strong showings at each competition. Despite the relatively small squad, they placed third in team competition at San Antonio's Southwest Championship and even had a female member place second in the men's division at a Dallas tournament. Judo competitions, though divided into men's and women's categories, allow women to compete with men. According to Judo Club president Jason Ugorji, "The Judo Club offers true full contact sport as well as low contact grappling, but is one of the most intense full contact organizations on campus." Ugorji, a senior video broadcasting major at UH, can be found training with the rest of the Judo Club's dedicated members on Monday's and Wednesday's from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and at the open mat Saturdays at 1:30 p.m. in room 205 of the Melcher Gymnasium. The Judo Club, despite its name, doesn't focus on just one discipline, however. "We teach multiple styles because no one style is enough to really be complete with all the disciplines out there. The competitions we go to and the style of fighting we practice is true self-defense, it's what you would use in street fighting. It's a lot like Ultimate Fighting Championship," Ugorji points out. Calwell emphasizes personal instruction and has his students constantly working with a partner, but does not teach using a kata. He emphasizes the importance of flexibility in combat instead of being trapped by the traditional forms that katas enforce, and encourages sparring instead. If nothing else, the Judo Club has plenty of action for everyone. -Richard Whitrock X'mon, you can take him!" The class watches as the instructor shows them a new move.
