Results: Wellington Area Blue and White Competition – 13 May 2018

By | News

There was a good turnout from the Academy at the Blue and White, sadly not even attended by some other clubs.

Supporting the event on this rainy Sunday were Koizumi Kwai, Wainui YMCA and Kapiti Judo Clubs. Great enthusiasm was shown by all involved and there were several newcomers to competition who distinguished themselves, by effort as much as achievement. There were no boring bouts, and generally clean technique an commitment to positive, attacking judo.

The Team: Roberta Griffiths, Kieran Masuda-Morgan, Sean Masuda-Morgan, Aurie Tzeng, Josh Pomfret, Lucinda Griffiths, Isla Morrison, Jack Brunel, Camille Girard, Tom McKinnon, Arden Grove, Eva Maora, Izyah Maora, Mana Maora, Lucas Talarkiewicz, Blake Shepherd, Maisie Morrison, Zacharie Girard

The Haul:
First: Josh Pomfret, Jack Brunel (2), Roberta Griffiths (2), Kieran Masuda-Morgan, Aurie Tzeng, Sean Masuda-Morgan, Peri Shaw, Lucinda (2)
Second: Josh Pomfret, Blake Shepherd, Eva Maora, Tom McKinnon, Camille Girard, Sean Masuda-Morgan, Kieran Masuda Morgan, Hayley Shaw (2)
Third: Luca Talarkiewicz, Isla Morrison (2)

The next competition in the Wellington Calendar is the Chocolate Fish being held at Budokan JC on 17 June.

At some point in the near future Wainui YMCA may schedule a Chocolate Fish Competition to pick up the one they were unable to host in April.

Stay tuned for more information.


Kids Judo

Exclusion Date – Saturday 12 May

By | News

Sorry for the short notice. This was something which escaped our notice (it does happen occasionally) so here it is:

Aikido is holding an event all Saturday at the dojo, so classes have been shifted.

Regular Saturday Classes are being held at South Wellington Intermediate School Hall. Times as normal.

The hall is located on Rintoul Street, on the left immediately past Wakefield Hospital as you head south.

The steps up to the bottom yard are right by the zebra crossing. The Hall is to the left. Please contact Cameron at mjollnier@yahoo.com if you need clarification.

Weekend of 5-6 May 2018.

By | News

This weekend the Academy is hosting a Judo New Zealand Level 2 Coaching workshop. Members from the Wellington Judo Association and other areas will be working towards their Club Coach Qualifications.

As a consequence, the Saturday junior class on 5 May is cancelled and the senior class is being held at the usual time, but at South Wellington Intermediate School Hall. This is located on Rintoul Street in Newtown.

Regular classes resume the following Tuesday.
