We are very proud of our Judoka's achievements in or out of the club. Competitions and promotions, certificate awards etc are something we do throughout the year, from beginners to advanced, children and adults alike. We enter local events as well as National and International and have many champions, medallists and award holders. Below are some of our proud moments.
This is Reuben, age 5. During August he worked really hard at the club and never missed a class, even on his birthday. He is a lovely well behaved and brilliant little judoka. So very much deserved, our first Player of the month for 2021 went to him. Well done matey xx
First competition back after 18 months due to Covid, 4th Sept 2021,and Ace goes and takes the u48kg cadets by storm, winning a well deserved Gold, and being selected for the ETD Squad. Fabulous start to the year.
Ben Barkby travelled to Scotland for the Scottish Open cadets in March 2020. He fought really well, resulting in a Bronze and more ranking points to finish the year. This was the last comp before Covid hit.
4 golds for the raiders at the Southfields Open 50th anniversary Championships. Ollie, Lucy, Kate and Ben with Evan tagging along as a supporter for the day. Fantastic result. Feb 2020.
Kate Chisholm was short listed for 2 awards at the BJC Awards ceremony in 2019. That in its self was an achievement, but on the night she won both, Outstanding Achievement and Primary/junior female player of the year. So proud of how far she has come.
Both these boys joined us at the start of our R.K, UK club journey. Evan age 10 and Ollie age 8.They have worked really hard to adapt to our judo ways and in return they achieved two certificates each and player of the month awards for outstanding work. Well done boys. 2019.
