    I'd almost do it for the gi alone.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    Good point, Seriously. Some gi's here are around 40 so again, this is a massive steal of an offer.

    You get a gi, 10 weeks of lessons, a grading and a licence that lasts for a year.

    That's 110 worth of kit, lessons etc... discounted down to 60, a 50 saving.

    A note on the gi, they are the BJA branded gi:

    They aren't exactly Mizuno quality, but they're fine for beginners and they will easily see you through a year or two's training, by which time you'll probably have decided you like Judo enough to commit to a more expensive gi or have bought a second one anyway so you can train more often.

    If anyone does live in travelling distance of one of those clubs and fancies doing a bit of Judo. I'd strongly recommend it.

    There's one in Hackney and another in Tower Hamlets, if you're willing to come into Central.

    Capital London Judo Club
    Cardinal Pole - Lower School (Lammas Road Entrance), Victoria Park Road, Hackney E9 7HD
    Wednesday 23 May 19.30 - 21.00

    Tower Hamlets Judo Club
    White Chapel Leisure Centre, 55 Durward Street, E1 5BA
    Saturday 19 May 11.00 - 12.30

    Obviously a bit of a pain if you're coming from Brent way, but doable, especially if you work towards Central.

    Also they will be doing another rotation later in the year and they seem to be progressing to different parts of the country in each cycle i.e last time it was West Midlands and no East Mids and now there's East Mids and no West Mids.

    Yeah sadly I work in Wembley, until 18:00 every night and TFL reckons its at least an hour to any of those.

    Still, I'm giving the Willesden guys a call tomorrow afternoon and I'm moving house in September, so there's always a chance that I will rotate towards the rotation.
