A lot of great things happened in 2013. Hollywood Judo won more than 50 medals in tournaments. This is more than in any other year in the club’s 82 year history. We now train every day. We have our own gym area. And most importantly, the determination amongst our young fighters is outstanding! Wishing everybody a Happy New Year filled with laughter and good health!
