It was a fantastic day with over forty junior and senior members competing in our Leigh Judo Club quarterly grading on Sunday. It is a great opportunity to test the development and skills of our members and recognise and celebrate their commitment and dedication. During the club grading there were many accomplished techniques and performances from many members highlighting the great progress made this year so far.
Well done to all who graded, in particularly those who graded for the first time and a number of seniors achieving their 1st KYU (Brown belt) to begin their black belt journey. With many seniors starting the club new to judo, we are very proud to watch all of our members and club grow and progress. With a number of seniors brown belts we will be introducing increasing opportunities for strength and conditioning for our senior members in preparation of Dan grading.
During the day many parents commented on how efficient, enjoyable and organised the day was. It was in large part to the fantastic team who came to help support head coach Luke Brown and helped take in licence books and cooked in the kitchen. We would like to send a special thank you to Mark Harrison, Tom Negle, Joe Nordof, Jason Cossey, Vicky Taylor and Stephanie Bradley who helped to support head Coach Luke Brown.
We are open throughout the summer with no time off. We also have a special guest performing a Leigh Judo Club masterclass in August! Stay tuned, it won’t be one to miss!
