New Dojo for Wallsend's Bushido Judo Kwai

Wallsend's Bushido Judo Kwai will begin training from Monday 28th May 2012 at its new dojo at Kings Estate Residents Association, Milfield Avenue, King's Estate, Wallsend, NE28 9JF. The move was prompted when Wallsend Boy's Club (our home for 25 years) was demolished.
When  I approached the Kings Estate Residents Association Committee with a view to us running our club from their premises they moved very quickly and soon gave me the go ahead, for which we are very grateful, as this is a perfect facility for our club.
