Two long time club members awarded Black Belts !!!!

Tina Takahashi Martial Arts and Fitness was host to an East Region Grading on Sunday, June 7, 2015. Several judoka from Ottawa, Ajax, Almonte and beyond were evaluated in front of a panel of high ranking judo officials from across the province.

The Almonte Judo Club is proud to announce both Almonte candidates, Meghan Ladouceur and Ward Smith, were successful in their grading to Shodan !! (1st degree black belt) This is a tremendous accomplishment for both club members, and follows several months of intensive training. Chenoa Marshall and Sebastian Kadoke-Scantlebury volunteered their time and bodies in the capacity of ‘partners’ for Meghan and Ward respectively. We are indebted to those individuals who unselfishly devoted so much time to ensure the readiness of both candidates.

Meghan and Ward join existing black belts, Chenoa Marshall, Lena Vinogradov and Gord MacDonald to help form one awesome team! As Sensei, I could not be more proud to see the direction our Club is moving. Exciting times for certain!

A celebration and gathering was held at the Almonte Fitness Centre on Sunday June 14 to recognize the success of Meghan and Ward. Thanks to all those who were able to attend. A great time was had by all, and we’ll let the pictures tell the story!
