Fighting Chance programme hailed as huge success

Dear Club Members,

Medway Fighting Chance programme

It'is always nice to be able to report on a success story and that's just what the Fighting Chance Inclusion Programme has been deemed to be.  Back in March 2011 we were pleased to be asked to work with Kent Police and Kent Fire & Rescue on an inclusion programme called Medway Fighting Chance.  This required the club to deliver a set of 12 week courses of judo to pre-selected groups of young people between the ages of 13 and 17 from within the local area.

Dojo Project - Help needed from senior members

Dear Senior Club Members

As the plan to set up a permanent judo centre at the Greenacre School gathers pace we are looking for assistance from club members, friends or family who may have relevant skills or time to donate.  So far, we have had a small group of people working on the project but as things move ahead and more jobs need to be done we may need some additional support.

Sally gains 2nd Dan

Dear Club Members,

It is with great pleasure we can announce that Sally Elcome passed her final assessment for promotion to 2nd Dan Black Belt last weekend.  Sally had a final couple of sections of theory to complete for ther promotion assessment and during our International Training Event last weekend, Dermot Heslop and Kerry Finney kindly agreed to carry this out after the judo sessions had finished.  Well done to Sally for a very overdue promotion.

International Training Event

Dear Club Members,

Thank you to all the club members who supported our International Training Event last weekend, and what a weekend it was.  We had around 105 judoka on the mat on Saturday and over 80 on Sunday morning with the feedback we have had so far indicating it had been an excellent event.

Children in Need update

Children In Need and Training Weekend update

Dear Club Members,

Children In Need

On Friday 18th November we will be raising funds for Children in Need again by having a cake sale and also asking you to pay £1.00 to wear your pyjama bottoms to judo instead of your judo trousers!  We did this last year and it was a very funny sight.

Bring lots of extra pennies and go home with some tasty cakes and biscuits and dont forget to wear your pyjama bottoms in as well and pay your £1.00 for the pleasure.

Training Weekend

Club gains new Black Belt

Congratulations to Wayne Lander who took part in the Budokwai Dan Grading earlier today and acheived his Black Belt.  Wayne needed just 40 more competitive points to secure the coveted grade and did that in style earlier today.  Points are awarded at certain tournaments and special Dan Gradings for each contest won against other Brown Belts or higher grades, but only those won by Ippon (10 points) or a Waza-Ari (7 points) count.

Dear Club Members,
