Our readers may recall a post back in February regarding the equipment our members donated to a club in Africa. Here is an update.
Saizen Judo would like to extend a special word of thanks to BC (British Columbia) Judo in Canada and specifically to Sensei Sandra Hewson for organizing and coordinating the donation and shipment of several used Judogi’s for development use in South African and specifically in our club.
Sandra met our head instructor Dave whilst at the Commonwealth Judo Championships in Cardiff, Wales in January 2012 and out of her own arranged for donations from well meaning Judoka in and around BC, Canada.
We received the shipment and have already distributed most of the equipment.
There were some books intended for youngsters and these are especially popular.
With this help, we are able to provide free Judo tuition to those that cannot afford it and so are able to spread the Judo “word”.
