Christchurch Earthquake
Thursday, 24 February 2011 10:23

A terrible tragedy has hit Christchurch City and surrounding areas and the thoughts of the New Zealand judo community are with our Canterbury colleagues. The extended Spinks family are all ok and JNZ Board member Naomi Spinks has agreed to act as our liaison person in Christchurch. As she hears judo people are safe she will post the news on her Facebook page. Canterbury judo people should post that they are OK on Naomi's Facebook page. Some will not have internet access but can make contact with Naomi through the following:

Telephone 03 3479974 Mobile 021 446856 Email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Offers of help are being made to host impacted people out of Christchurch. If you are willing to help please send these offers to myself at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it so I can coordinate this with those in Christchurch.

The attached letters of support have been received from the Presidents of the IJF and the French Judo Federation. We have also received messages of concern and condolence from the following countries; Japan, India, Uzbekistan, and Poland.

Dave Browne - President - Judo New Zealand
