Let the new (2018-19) season begin !!!!!

We won’t rush the summer away, but we are less than 6 weeks from the start of the new judo season!!!

This will be our 51st continuous year of operation in the town of Almonte, and if you missed our 50th year, not to worry – our 51st will be as exciting.

Everything gets started Wed Sept 5 in the Upper Hall of the Almonte Arena. Existing members – just show up !! New members, show up a little early, sign a form, and jump on the mats!! We will need to carefully monitor our numbers (class size), so if you are truly interested please let me know ASAP and I will add your name to our ‘priority list’. If you are a teen or adult, we have room for you in our ‘Senior class’. If you are between the ages of 5-12, you will become a member of our Junior class.

So …. Junior class runs from 6:45PM to 8:00PM each Wednesday evening, starting on Sept 5 (Class #1), and running until December 12. Classes will not be held the night of Hallowe’en so everyone can enjoy the fun. Classes resume in early January and continue to the end of April, uninterrupted including March Break where we make it an especially fun night! In total, this season offers 31 classes for a very affordable cost of approx. $200 per (Junior) student. To simplify your life (and ours) we offer an easy e-payment option, or accept cash/cheques if necessary. We also offer discounts for multiple siblings, and a tremendous family discount for 3 or more family members.

Senior classes commence at 8:00PM each week and run to 9:30PM, following the same schedule as above. It should be noted that any Junior student ‘bordering on becoming a Senior’ is entitled to participate in both Junior and Senior classes for no additional cost!! Feel free to inquire whether your child(ren) may qualify for this amazing offer.

Throughout the year there will be judo tournaments (optional), in-house parties and celebrations, and so much more !!! Spectators and family members are always welcome to view our classes from a comfortable seating area, and our facility offers ample parking. Inside the dojo, we are proud to offer the highest level of martial arts instruction, with at least 4 Black Belt Senseis, and a host of higher level belts who assist. Our dojo is safe, well equipped with washrooms and change facilities, a kitchen, elevator ….. and a very large mat surface. You will not be disappointed!!

Additional information will follow as the new season approaches. In the interim, if you have any questions about our program or suitability for your child (or self), do not hesitate to contact ‘Gord’ at 613-256-2180 or email gordalmonte@hotmail.com, browse other posts, or check out our new FB page for latest updates. Judo – ‘The Gentle Way’. Confidence, Fitness, Fairness and Discipline is our motto ….. and there’s a large element of fun too !!!!!!
