Annual Yudanshakai meeting – September 27th

We’ll be having our annual Yudanshakai meeting on September 27th, after practice.  Afterwards, we’ll have dinner at the 2nd dojo.

New blackbelt members are encouraged to join, and old members are encouraged to renew.  We will collect a small fee which we will use for club related activities for the members.

Please email hkjudokan@gmail.com or Andrew Heinrichs if you are planning on attending the dinner.  We’ll also post a signup sheet on the notice board.

A farewell dinner for Ken

Unfortunately, Ken will be leaving Hong Kong after being a solid contributor to the dojo for several years.

Please join us for his last practice on Saturday, the 29th of July. We’ve got to give him a proper send off that involves him getting a chance to fight all of us one last time.  Afterwards there will be a dinner.

Email hkjudokan@gmail.com with your name and number of people attending if you wish to join.

A Distinguished Visitor

One of the most interesting things about our club is the frequency and quality of the  guest players that show up at our club throughout the year.

Last night we had the privilege of practicing with Rob Rhoda’s uncle, Peter Blewett, the chief instructor of the the Budokwai club in London.  Needless to say, it was an interesting practice.

Thank you Peter for your visit and we hope to see you again.
