Annual Sensei Memorial Tournament
Our annual tournament is held the 2nd or 3rd weekend in February. The SJB Judo Club hosts one of the largest and most prestigious local tournaments in the United States, hosting over 700 competitors! The Parent Booster Club works very closely with the Judo club to coordinate this huge event. Volunteers are needed in all areas of the tournament preparation.
This is held on a Sunday in April. It is our biggest annual fundraiser. We manage a concession booth selling ramen and lemonade. Our club members volunteer the day before in preparing the food and construction of the booths, and on the day of the event to cook and sell the ramen. It is a lot of fun and a great social event. Parents, students and friends are all welcome and encouraged to participate.
Sea Cliff Beach party
Held the last weekend in June - one of our biggest and BEST events... Volleyball, swimming, fishing, sandcastle contests, games, food and more food!
