Happy New Year to all our members. We hope you have all had a great and relaxing festive break and are ready to charge into another Judo year!

Merry Christmas All
Friday, 10 December 2010 14:31

We wish to thank all volunteers at every level of the organisation for their valuable contributions to Judo in New Zealand over the past year. We continue to move through a period of change in an effort to provide our members with a rewarding judo experience. Without your assistance, successes achieved to date would not be possible, nor will the achievement of our future goals.
So, to all our members - and especially those who donate their time and energy to assisting them - we wish you a very happy Christmas / New Year season, enjoy the break, stay safe, and we hope to see you all back on the mat in 2011.
