Summer 2021

In line with guidance from the BJA, we are delighted to announce that Alexandra Park Judo Club will resume full contact judo for all seniors from Saturday 24 July 2021. Initially outdoors but hopefully moving inside in August.

We have decided to adopt a cautious approach and until case numbers start falling in Haringey and surrounding boroughs, all participants will be required to provide a negative COVID test prior to every session. We have ordered a bucket load of lateral flow tests and you will be presented with one upon your arrival.

There will be no children’s sessions over the summer. Classes will resume in September 2021.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the coaching staff.

Open Air Judo

Alexandra Park School have not yet opened its doors to lettings, so we can’t start indoor training just yet. However, we will be starting (socially distanced) outdoor sessions every Saturday morning from 12 September 2020 in the Albert Road Recreation Ground.

We will be in contact with all members as soon as this changes and we can resume normal training.

Return to judo

It’s been a while since we’ve all stepped on the mat together, and I am sad to say we’re going to have to wait a little longer.

Whilst current guidelines allow indoor training, Alexandra Park School are not open for lettings until October at the very earliest.

We will be in contact with all members as soon as this changes and we can resume normal training.

Class Cancellation – Coronavirus

Due to COVID-19 we have decided to cancel all classes until further notice.

We don’t this this decision lightly and will review this on a weekly basis.

Please keep an eye on Facebook, Instagram and our club WhatsApp groups for updates.

Classes cancelled until further notice

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.

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

Rob (U68kg) fought well and gave it his best shot, won 1 by ippon but sadly lost 2. Lastly, Dom (U81kg) in his first comp for 10 years put in a sterling performance but was undone by some very questionable refereeing decisions.

Well done everyone, you did the club and yourself proud.
