Alexandra Park Judo Club, a community club with a competitive edge.
Alexandra Park Judo Club can be found in the gymnasium of Alexandra Park School, Rhodes Avenue in Muswell Hill every Tuesday evening and Saturday morning.
We pride ourselves on the fun, friendly, family atmosphere in the club and welcome all new members regardless of experience and ability.
The club is run by Stuart Wilkinson with the help of several instructors as a not for profit organisation.
All coaches are fully qualified, DBS checked and first aid trained.
Judo was formulated by Dr Jigaro Kano in Japan over 100 years ago and at Alexandra Park Judo Club we believe that the traditions, history and ideals of the original founder are as important today as they were when judo was first conceived.
Apart from the obvious benefits that can be obtained by practicing judo like general well being and fitness, judo can improve other individual skills like – self-confidence, mental maturity and strength, discipline and dedication and a sense of community.
2018 Medal Tally
At the start of the year, the APJC coaching team met to decide goals for 2018. As a group, we decided we wanted to try move the club from a moderately successful community club to one with more of a competitive edge.
We tried several things including, starting an APJC squad, making our Saturday sessions more competition orientated and better communication about up coming competitions and results.
We have attended a wide range of competitions from bashos and mini mons to national championships and I am ridiculously proud to say that we took home 31 Gold 👏, 34 Silver 👏 and 35 Bronze 👏 medals!
We have hugely overachieved and this could not have been made possible without a team of motivated players, supportive parents and dedicated coaches.
Special thanks to Khalid Sheikh, Dom Will, Ian Wilson, Masa Tanaka, Steen Eriksen, Christopher Grilli and Roger Marks for their hard work this year.
Here’s to 2019.
