Bushido Judo Kwai European Tour 1980

May 1980 and the Bushido Judo Kwai were in Europe to compete against three other judo clubs. Our base for five day's would be at the Hotel Op de Boud, Parallelweg 5, Vallkenburg, Holland. Our first event was with Schinveld Judo Club, Holland, which we won, we also won the next competition against the Hei-Sei-Do Judo Club, Klimmen also in Holland. Next we travelled over the border to Germany to compete with Aachen Judo Club, who were in a far higher class than the two previous clubs, but our squad really did us proud and made it three win's to the Bushido Judo Kwai. Our team also included several members from NDLB Judo Club, Hull, Budokan, Leicester and GEC Judo Club, Leicester, three clubs that we always got on with, hence the invitation to join us on the tour.
