Judo at Pill - changes in July / August

On Friday 20th July there is not going to be a Junior Judo Session at Pill. Instead, all available instructors are invited to attend a session regarding Judo within TJK and our plans for the second half of the year. We will also be needing your input on code of conduct. This session will start at 7pm.

From 8.30pm to 9.30pm we will have the standard adults session (all adults and intermediates can attend) but focusing on higher level work and randori to finish.

Please can you confirm your attendance to Sensei Steve Chappell asap.

There is no Judo on 3rd August as there is Aikido taking place in the hall.

Our Low Grade Comp is booked for Sun 7th Oct. Please get it in your diaries as we will need people available to help out.
