Play Judo charades, pick a word then act out the letters using only judo techniques or terms eg JUDO

J – either juji-gatame or jigotei

U – could be either uki-goshi or indicate the partner you are throwing as uke

D – either deashi-barai or the dojo

O – ogoshi or your belt (obi).

Or you could see if you could act out your name.

  • This is a good game for training your memory to recall what you do know away from from the tatami.
  • Whenever possible Japanese terms should be used but if you are desperate you can always use English translations or ‘sounds like’ as there are not many judo terms beginning with L, P, Q, V or X
