Training Camp a great success

Last weekend we once again held our annual International Training Weekend at the Greenacre School.  Eighty-two Dutch and French judoka, family and Coaches travelled to Kent on Saturday morning for this annual club exchange.  There was a great turnout from club members and we were joined by a few friends from Sittingbourne and Parkwood Judo Clubs as well, which was very much appreciated.  In the end there were around 120 judoka on the mat so the four contest areas laid out in the sports hall were well and truly needed.

Kent Orange & Under Championships

Due to injury and illness only three of those who had intended to take part in the Orange & Under Championship held in Canterbury on 17 November actually made it on the day.  However, those who did take part came away with some excellent results.  Michael Ziga was taking part in his first competiton and, although nervous, he fought really well, improving with each contest eventually coming away with the 1st place Bronze.

Busy times for Walderslade judoka

Last weekend was a busy one for members of Walderslade Judo Club, with 8 taking part in a judo camp in Essex, whilst several others competed in the Help For Heroes championship in Kent.

All of those who took part in the Judo Campz event in Essex enjoyed the weekend where they had several judo lessons and were able to participate in lots of fun activities as well.  The event went so well that there are already plans being considered to hold another one sometime next year.

British Masters success for Walderslade coach

Family sessions tomorow

Dear club members,

As part of the BBC ‘Things To Do’ and the ‘Join-In Sport’ campaigns we are holding a few family sessions where you can get your brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, mums, dads, nans and granddads even to come on to the mat for a free fun lesson to see what it is like being on the mat themselves.
