Busy Sunday at The Budokwai

It's been a busy day at The Budokwai this Sunday!

It began with a visit from the Nada High School Judo Club from Japan who attended the cadet practice. It was a fantastic occasion.

We then held a Senior Judo Dan grading, which was followed by a London Area training session.

The final event of the day was the Karate grading.

Thank you to everyone who attended one of our events today, especially all the Mums on this Mothers Day!
