Change the world

Judo

The NMMU Judo club prides itself in doing outreach to enrich the lives of those in the community less fortunate and to ensure all know how to protect themselves.

Previous Projects:

The club has run a self defence course on campus for the students. This will not be the last, we will be having more of these courses for staff and students. All information about future courses will be posted here.

On the 12th of May 2010, the Judo club visited a club less fortunate at the George Botha indoor sports centre. The kids enjoyed it thoroughly and a great time was had by all. Check the gallery for pictures of this project.

On the 14th August 2010, the Judo Club visited the inmates at St Albans Medium B Prison to help out with their grading. This is part of the rehabilitation of the prisoners and it served as an eye opener to the students. Check the gallery to see what a great time was had by all.

On the 11th September 2010, the team visited the S.O.S. Children's Village in Schauderville and conducted a self defence course for the kids and the adults. A great time was had by all and everyone learnt a lot. After the self defence, a game of soccer was played with the kids and they thoroughly enjoyed it. At the end of the day each of the kids received a pie and a juice from the students. It was a great day all in all. Pictures of the day are in the gallery.

On the 18th September 2010, we conducted a self defence course for the students of the Oceana Residence at 2nd Avenue Campus. Having been taught a few bone crushing techniques, the students were confident that they were now able to defend themselves. Check the gallery to see all the fun.

Future Projects:

We will be embarking on more projects so as to make the NMMU Judo Club more prevalent within the community. Including self defence courses that will be conducted on the campus. Watch this space for more information.
