Retiring Instructors - Julie and Jacqui

Founder and chief instructor Sensei Julie Jenkins and deputy chief instructor Sensei Jacqui Dallimore are to retire from running the Judo Club in Backwell.

Sensei Julie Jenkins (founder and chief instructor) and Sensei Jacqui Dallimore (deputy chief instructor) are to retire from leading the Judo Club in Backwell after 27 years at the end of July.

To secure the longevity of the club, a team of five experienced black belt instructors (Trudi Marshall, Iain Bell, James Marshall, Joshua Weavers and William Marshall), will take over the running of the club from September 5.

Julie and Jacqui are proud to have served Backwell, Nailsea and the surrounding areas, sharing their passion for the sport of judo with more than 1,400 children, young people and adults.

They would like to thank each and every one of them for years of enjoyment and happy memories. Their good wishes are extended to the new leadership team for a successful future.
