“do or not do - there is no try”
2019 WN Area Grassroots Camp
Wednesday, 20 March 2019 08:24

The following is a report from WN Area;

When Gisborne Judo Club van arrived at El Rancho on Friday 15th March adrenaline of those present started racing.  Jason King and Kiki Velloza were the Guest Coaches for the annual Grassroots Camp and they brought 7 club members with them.
There were 80 young Judoka on the mat for 2 days learning from Jason’s and Kiki’s worldly Judo knowledge and experience.  Palmerston North Judo Club and Forgotten Art Judo Club also had members attend.  On Sunday the Chocolate Fish and Beat-up-a-black-belt events created lots of smiles and laughter.
The atmosphere of the weekend was exciting for Judoka, coaches, parents and volunteers who were there.  Thank you Jason and Kiki for your time given to us in Wellington.

Congratulations to all involved!

Success In Peru
Wednesday, 13 March 2019 07:22

We have three members currently competing in three Continental Opens in South America - Justine Bishop (NJS AK), Jason Koster (CJA CA), and Elliott Connolly (CJA CA).

The first of these opens was held in Lima, Peru over the weekend and we are pleased to advise that Justine fought her way to a bronze medal in the Under 57 kg category and Jason did the same in the Under 100 kg category.

Two bronze medals is a great start in their first tournament - congratulations!

The three now move on to Cordoba, Argentina this weekend and Santiago, Chile the weekend following.

We wish all three good luck for these events and hopefully more medals.
