Please keep this attitude up in training! Sensei Doug and Sensei James are very proud of you all!

Judo Grading Success

There was some excellent success for our Judo section last weekend.  ELEVEN of our junior judoka were promoted!  Myself and James Sensei are extremely proud of each and every one of you!  Every bar on a belt that leads to a different colour is progress!  Please make sure you are back on the tatami at the earliest opportunity to continue moving in the right direction!  Well done all!
