Judo BC is sad to announce the Seinen Judo Club will be closing May 1st. This North Delta club, operating out of the Boys and Girls club, has been an active member of Judo BC with both junior and senior members participating in tournaments on a regular basis every year.
“It was a difficult decision” said head sensei Jack McKay who started the club 38 years ago and has been running it ever since.
Recent recent achievements include:
- 2014 Canada West Invitational: Ben Bacolod – Gold, Shaun Filipenko – Silver, Margit Tefa – Silver and John Aquila – Bronze at the
- 2013 Canadian Championships: Andrew Erjavec, 2013 Canadian Champion, Master -66kg
“I’d like to congratulate Jack McKay for running the Seinen club for almost 40 years. He has shown a commitment to our sport that is an example to us all. The many judoka he has produced throughout his tenure at Seinen are a testament to that dedication. While it is sad to see the club close after so many years, we wish Jack a happy retirement and expect to see him at Judo BC events in the future. Judo BC and I personally would like to thank Jack for all his years of dedication and support to Judo in BC.” Sandy Kent, Judo BC President
