Activeyes is offering you the fantastic opportunity of a Free 8 week Judo Course run by the British Judo Association here at Beacon.
Many people will have seen judo at the London 2012 Olympic and
Paralympic Games. It is an exciting sport, where a split-second can
mean victory or defeat as athletes aim to score the ultimate ippon.
All those who take part for more than four weeks get a free judo suit,
gradings and record book. All worth over £100 each if you had to buy it!
If the course is successful our long term goal is to set up a Visually
Impaired Judo Club here at the Beacon Centre.
The sessions will take place every Thursday for 8 weeks from 28th August at 2pm in Beacon’s Recreation room.
