2016 NB Provincial Judo Tournament
When : February 6th & 7th, 2016
Where : Harry Miller Middle School
Hoste : K.V. Judo Club
We will be hosting the Judo NB Provincials and the Greg Halpin Memorial Kids Tournament on February 6 and 7, 2016
Harry Miller Middle School.
This takes a lot of work and I am hoping many people will volunteer so these tournaments will be great successes. I will be putting up jobs we need volunteers for at the door to our dojo (club). We will need people to help move mats and return the mats after the tournaments. If you have a truck to assist with this job that will be greatly appreciated. If you do not have a truck we still need your muscle. We need two males and females for weigh ins. Veronica Gower has volunteered to be our canteen coordinator but will need lots of help in the canteen. Leslie Vanderbeck has volunteered to take charge of our scorekeepers and timekeepers. The score keeping and timekeeping jobs should be done by people in our adult class. Lori Webster has volunteered to take care of the registration and to keep me on task so you can only imagine the help she needs. If you help in anyway it will be greatly appreciated.
With lots of help we can make these tournaments very successful!
Thank you and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Competitive Judo Class
Students have asked me to start a competitive judo class on Friday evenings. What does this mean? This class will be more about doing drills than teaching. It will benefit all judokas but especially those who like and want to compete. We will start Nov. 6th and the class will go from 5:30 - 6:30. It is for all students 10 and older with a yellow belt and higher.
The cost is $10 / class, but if the cost is stopping you from attending please contact me. I do not want anyone not doing judo due to money!
For up todate / last minute information head to our
Face Book page.

We have some students that will want to attend the Nationals in Calgary in May 2016. Obviously this will be quite an expensive adventure for these students and thus they have started to raise some money through fundraising.
Presently we are selling tickets on a 3 month free membership. These tickets are being sold during our class times on Sunday and Wednesday.

A few updates were made to the site. To stream line this "Home" page, articles of events ( past ) were moved to the "Events" page. On the "Events" page, an updated link to the Judo NB events calendar was created - yes quite similar to the Home page. No articles were harmed in the making of these changes.
