When Was Bognor Regis Zen Judo Club Founded
Bognor Regis Zen Judo Club (brzjc) was founded on the 1st March 2004 by its Chief Instructor John Robertson.

A month later the club took delivery of a 21 x 30 ft canvas and the first full training sessions were held on 5th April 2004, with around a dozen students present.

Do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been but also where you are going.
Life is not a race but a journey to be savoured each step of the way.
"A black belt is nothing more than a belt that goes around your waist.
Being a black belt is a state of mind and attitude."
– Rick English
"The black belt is not a mark or symbol of the end of the journey to ones mastery of the arts;
rather it is the mark that one is done packing for their journey and may now take the first step in their true journey.
