2014, Aug, Sensei Alf Hopkins Summer School

St. Albans Judo Club Celebrates 25 years of Summer School !

This Summer St. Albans Judo Club was proud to celebrate our 25th Annual Summer School.  For the past 25 years the club has hosted a week of Judo, games and fun, all overseen by Sensei Alf Hopkins and a team of the club's instructors. This year’s Summer School was our most successful ever with 72 young judoka working hard all week to make this a memorable week.

In celebration of this 25th Anniversary and in recognition of his ongoing support and dedication to St. Albans Judo Club, the club is proud to name Sensei Alf Hopkins, 6th Dan as the club’s first Honorary Life President.

Sensei Hopkins has been a regular visitor to the club for over 30 years bringing his vast experience and knowledge to benefit our members and instructors alike.

Alongside Sensei Hopkins a dedicated group of instructors have been there for the past 25 years making them a vital part of our Summer School.  In recognition of their support of the club we are pleased to award Honorary Life membership to John Osborn, Les Lee, Sandy Sanderson and Helen Byard.

The Club would like to thank all the members, parents and instructors that dedicated their time to make our 25th Summer School such a success.

We look forward to seeing you all next year for Summer School 26!
