Sono Mama!

We will be closed for the next 2 weeks. I gave a date of August 16th – as a Tuesday this was obviously inaccurate; will confirm restart date soon.

Great work Charlie!
Charlie just graded up to White/Red in his recent test.

He also led the team that lifted Tony clean across the mats this week! No lightweight, then. Nice one, Charlie, well deserved.
 
PS: There will be no judo for the next 2 weeks – we restart August 16th.

Golden Boy!!

Richard Murphy, our Seniors Coach, competed in the British Ne Waza (groundwork) Championships in High Wycombe last Saturday, 16 July, 2016 winning all his contests in the 66 and 73 categories. Literally, you can’t keep a good man down!
