Program Ad Submission Deadline extended to Monday, January 11th!!!
 Please complete your submission.  Thank you to all of you who have worked hard to get donations, who have donated and to those of you who are still working on this task. It's not easy putting a tournament together, & we appreciate all the help and work you have put into it. 

Dues are do!   
Please note dues have gone up due to our rent increase.  First student is $25; second student in the family household is $20 & subsequent students will be $15 from the same family household.

*Note - If you or your child will be taking a leave of absence (LOA) from the dojo or leaving GJC, it is important that you inform the board with the attached paperwork.  If a LOA or membership cancellation is not completed and turned in to the Board, we are assuming that you are still an active member and you will be billed for the month.

Renew your USJF Membership!
Please check your/your child's USJF card.  If it is close to expiring or has expired, please renew ASAP as the judoka or sensei will not be allowed on the mat.  It's a liability for GJC to not have updated USJF memberships on file.  Here's the link to USJF application: 

** If you want to be removed from the mailing list or if you or someone you is not getting our announcements, please let Rowena know.


  1. Hi, my name is Joan. I am so interested in judo and joining you guys but I have a few challenges. I recently contracted a bad disease that put me down for a while. I am now recovering but how can this affect my health?

    1. Hi Joan,

      Please feel free to come one of our practices and you can get any of your questions answered in person. We practice Mondays and Thursdays at the JCI in Gardena. The kids class starts at 6:30 and the teens/adult class at 7:45pm. Thank you.

  2. Program Ad submission deadline is really good post. I am writing research based articles on these days about biopsy and it's after effects. Thanks for sharing this post and your experience.
