Funded Holiday Program
Wednesday, 05 February 2014 08:13

Westside Judo Club in Canterbury ran a holiday programme in the second to last week of the summer school holidays in association with Families and Communities Services. 
19 children registered with many never having tried Judo before. The programme was free (funded by the Ministry of Social Development) for all the children to participate in and was run over four days. The children were taught the basics of Judo, along with self-defence techniques and how to proactively avoid placing themselves in danger of being attacked. 
The programme was a great success and the children learnt good skills and had a great deal of fun.
As an Area, Canterbury is now looking at how it can take this holiday programme model and roll it out on a regular basis through other Judo clubs within Canterbury.
