Most of our members do not officially retire, they intend to return to the mat one day….
Tim Stubbings joined the Blackwater Judo club in its original form back in 1995 and became a most valued member of the club. During his 10-years with the club, his commitment and efforts to help the club to the level it is now went far beyond the call of duty. In 2004, Tim achieved his Dan grade and continued to shine until he finally retired from the club.
Tim was one of the highest committed club members who always maintained the highest respect for Judo, other Judoka’s and his peers.
Do you know someone who has officially retired from Blackwater Judo Club and would like to see them honored here. Send us their name, a photo and some details and we will do the rest.
