On Saturday 10th March 2018 two of our primiries, Henry and Rex attended the Chalfont Judo championship, with Henry getting Silver in his weight category and Rex getting Bronze. Well done to them both.
The last judo classes of 2017 will be on Friday 15th December, but we will be back on the mat again on Friday 5th January 2018.
This year has seen the club grow, which has meant that even though our hall hire costs went up by 44% at the beginning of May we have easily been able to soak up the extra cost with all the new members we have coming to the club, which is why we have been able to keep our mat fees at £3 per session. We are hoping that the club will grow further in 2018 and we will achieve further competition success.
From all the coaches at Kyu Kitso Judo club, we would like to thank everyone who has supported the club from the parents to the students.
We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!!
Every year Kyu Kitso Judo Club hosts a club friendly competition with Hecra Judo Club.

There was a great show of Judo and all the competitors fought with great determination and skill. Thanks again to Danny McIntosh for bringing his club along and also for refereeing on one of the mats.
