Nelson Judo Club & Central Districts Area Judo held a Judo Development Camp (primarily for 9-14 year olds) at Nelson Boys College, Nelson between 20 - 23 April 2017.

It was a great success with over 90 judoka attending from 6 clubs nationally – NEL CD, BLN CD, MOT CD, GRA CD, along with NJS AK and WJC CA.

The last question in the final Q&A session was: "are we going to hold another camp this year?" – a great closing comment.


Congratulations to all those who took part, and especially those who organised and ran the program.

Auckland Team Successful At QIO
Wednesday, 15 March 2017 08:39

The Auckland Squad attended the recent Queensland International Open, which was the largest ever with over 400 competitors - including a number of Japanese teams.

The Auckland team of 17 claimed 13 medals, which was a superb effort given a high number of “first time” international competitors, on top of hard twice daily training in Brisbane leading up to the event and an International Training Camp in the Gold Coast immediately after the event.

Auckland Coach Rob Levy (UNI AK) was one of four international coaches invited to run workshops at the International Training Camp.

Congratulations to all the team, officials, and supporters for a successful tour.
