Starting in January 2018 Destination@BritishJudo York, covers a variety of areas across North Yorkshire including three clubs in York (Huntington, Foxwood and Tang Hall) one club in Thirsk and a “NEW” club opening shortly in Easingwold.
With around 90 children attending eight classes over the week, children learn a whole range of judo at each club.
With Tang Hall being the first club open, they are learning more tachi-waza techniques (standing) and Thirsk being the latest, they are learning ne-waza techniques as shown below with one of the children holding down our special sensei “Rupert”.
Three clubs have recently taken part and completed their Gradings for their next belt which has been a fantastic achievement for the kids at all the clubs.
Two children attended their first ever Rumble in Middlesbrough with one achieving a Silver medal and winning Throw of the day, and the second achieving a bronze medal with some brilliant fights.
Taster sessions are currently being delivered in Easingwold to promote the up and coming club which has been fantastic with amazing engagement from all kids in all schools, with the aim to open and develop a new club very soon.
Keep an eye open for updates on the Destination@Britishjudo York hub.
