The ultimate goal of Judo is to perfect the individual so that he/she can be of value to society.  There are many reasons for learning Judo.  It provides exercise, relaxation, sport, an interesting challenge, balance, co-ordination, self-protection and self-confidence.  Judo offers a fellowship unlike other sports and develops a keen desire to co-ordinate mind and body.

Well done, everyone!
