The annual Hong Kong Junior Judo Championships was held on the 4th & 5th December at Shek Kip Mei Park Sports centre.
The event is one of the biggest Judo events in HK, with hundreds of top Judoka from all over HK aged 6 to 20 years competing over the 2 day championship.

The club ended the weekend with players ranked 2nd & 3rd in Hong Kong, amazing results after just one year of opening.
Mirko Jeck, age 15, 3rd Place -66kg age 13-16 category.
Edouard Pancuilo, age 12, 2nd place, +50kg age 10-12 category.
