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.
We took a squad of 13, both novice and seasoned competitors to this years Oxfordshire Championships. There was plenty to good judo on display and everyone should hold their heads up high after putting in a host of solid performances.

Chocolate – Song – Hockey
…and lots of good judo during the summer holidays.
Despite taking care of 5 horses, 2 dogs, 2 cats, building a tree-house and assisting in refereeing a riding competition during their summer holiday in Denmark, Benj and Basti felt that weeks without judo training was just too long a break.
So, contact was made with a local judo club, Helsingor Judo and Ju-Jutso Klub and it was arranged for the boys to train during junior classes and junior/master class. It was a fantastic experience of great judo, fun physical exercises and Danish traditions.
Since the majority of Danes speak English, the language barrier was easily overcome though a Danish birthday song and the tradition of eating chocolate while doing push-ups was a little surprising… Read more
