2019 WN Area Grassroots Camp
Wednesday, 20 March 2019 08:24

The following is a report from WN Area;

When Gisborne Judo Club van arrived at El Rancho on Friday 15th March adrenaline of those present started racing.  Jason King and Kiki Velloza were the Guest Coaches for the annual Grassroots Camp and they brought 7 club members with them.
There were 80 young Judoka on the mat for 2 days learning from Jason’s and Kiki’s worldly Judo knowledge and experience.  Palmerston North Judo Club and Forgotten Art Judo Club also had members attend.  On Sunday the Chocolate Fish and Beat-up-a-black-belt events created lots of smiles and laughter.
The atmosphere of the weekend was exciting for Judoka, coaches, parents and volunteers who were there.  Thank you Jason and Kiki for your time given to us in Wellington.

Congratulations to all involved!
