HISTORY

Rushjudo, Open November 2009, the story so far....


It has long been the ambition of the Rush family to open up their own Judo club, in order to give back to the sport that has given them so much.


Rushjudo has been made possible thanks to the kind generosity of the late Gordon Rush, a true legend and a huge supporter of judo.  The club is named and dedicated in his memory.

Rushjudo is also honored to have Ann Hughes 7th Dan, former World Champion and Olympic team coach as its honorary president.


Rushjudo is a community based project that has been developed in Partnership with Hertfordshire Police and Dacorum Borough Council.
