06/03/11 - The events page has been updated with upcoming Kaizen courses and gradings for 2011.

27/09/07 - A big thanks to everyone who helped out yesterday at the 2007 Fresher's Bazaar Stall.
In no particular order, special thanks to Sean, Val, Robert, Elaine, Barry, Simon & Gary. We manged to extract sign-up fees from loads of folk PLUS at least x3 times as many seemed really interested - so if we get even 1 in 3 to call down, the club will be really busy this year.

Congratulations also to all those who graded on Monday night - Val, Aine (enjoy your trip to Oz), Stephen & Mark. Hard work paid off - well deserved !!!
Thanks to Kevin & Peter for pushing hard to get the best out of everyone on the night.

11/06/07 - Congratulations to all who graded in QUB. The temperature was a killer but look on the bright side.... we only needed a five minute warm-up! Really great effort from everyone - as usual , preparation was the main factor.  Photos are now up in the Gallery.

Training continues both nights all through the Summer except Mon 9th - Wed 18th July inclusive.

10/06/07 - Thanks to all who ventured down to the teambuiding weekend. Surfing is much harder than it looks! The weather, the company and the craic was all terrific.

27/09/06 - Thanks to all those who came down to help out at this year's Freshers Bazaar. Aine, Stephen, Barry, Basil, Ian, Mark and Stephen M. Let me know if I've left anyone out! Numbers were pretty low this year with only 27 people signed up - but there was a lot of interest from people who said they'd come along to try out a class. Its getting harder for students to part with their case these days it seems.

In case you couldn't find us we weren't in our normal position in the corridor - a certain club (lets say they involve boats) evicted us into the main hall. Apparently most clubs were having a similar low signup this year so lets hope its just a blip.

Don't forget its a new term at Queens so get down to train early for the next few weeks to avoid the queues - and to make sure you get a place on the mats!

And last, but not least! Congratulations to everyone who graded last Monday night ? Hopefully we should have some photos up soon.

12/06/06 - Some photos from the weekend trip to Bundoran are now up in the Gallery.

15/12/05 - Hopefully everyone who came along to the Christmas party at Renshaws last night had a good time. If you can't remember what it was like there should be some photos up soon to refresh your memory!
