Three club members traveled to the USA earlier this month to compete in the World Judo Championships - Veterans 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Almost 1,300 of judo's toughest players over the age of 30 descended upon the Fort Lauderdale Convention Centre for the 4 day event and one of our club members emerged with a fantastic Bronze medal, being the first time any of our club members has ever taken a medal at a World Championship level event.

New Club Squad structure to be introduced

Dear club members

It is with pleasure that I can announce we will be introducing a 'Club Squad' structure for our junior section.  The idea will be to provide any junior players interested more in the competitive side of judo with the skills and ability to take part in more and higher level competition.  Walderslade has already had juniors who went on to win medals at British Championships level and beyond and we are now seeking to put an even for structured process in place for those youngsters interested in developing this side of their judo more.

Fancy a fitness class with a difference?

Did you know that apart from it's normal Monday and Friday night judo classes, Walderslade Judo Club also runs a weekly, hour long fitness class in the main hall at the Greenacre Academy.  

Samantha Riley, one of the clubs Coaches, runs the class, which is based on judo related movements and circuit training and is a great supplement for those who are training in judo but is also suitable for those who would like to get or keep fit but who don't want to get involved in learning the combat side of judo.

Christmas Championship and Games Night

Even though we have only just finished organising one of our most successful International Training Camps to date, our hard working volunteers and Coaches are already hard at it planning for our last event of the year.

We will be holding a special Team Competition & Games Night to finish the year off on a high note and celebrate the starting of the Christmas holidays.

Club launches its own YouTube Channel

We wanted to let you all know that we have now set up our own club YouTube Channel and we wanted to let you all know how to find it.  We have placed a link on the clubs website page (www.waldersladejudo.co.uk) and hopefully the link below will also take you there.

We have only uploaded a few videos so far, but hope to add more as time goes on.  You never know what we might dig up from our archives so keep checking back, you never know, you may be featured on there one day !

Club members compete at World Judo Championships

Four of our regular club members traveled to Amsterdam last week to compete in the World Judo Championships - Veterans.  The event attracted over 1,300 of the worlds top veterans (30 years plus) judo players and our fighters had to be there from 21 and 24 September.

This is the most important event any of our club members have taken part in and the chances of coming home with a medal was always going to be slim.  They all gave it their best shot and came away having had a great experience and having learned a number of useful lessons.
