New Judo promotions!!

It's been a really hectic last few weeks and having very limited access to the Internet hasn't helped in updating the Blog; I am pleased to announce that last week saw three members of the club being promoted to orange belt, by Judo coach George Launders.

Everyone at the club are benefitting from George's tuition and it makes sense to train Judo when competing in BJJ, as every BJJ match starts from standing; over the last twelve months, George has been adapting his Judo tuition to help compliment the BJJ classes and the transitions from standing to groundwork are getting stronger week after week, which can only be a good thing.

With this in mind, the training and competition preparation continues in earnest, as the clubs prepares for battle at the Manchester Open in April; the competition preparation brings every student up to scratch, whether they compete or not, as all the training for comps such as the Manchester Open involves everyone, so this is really a team effort in every sense of the word.

Huge congrats to Lee Gilmore, Will Aston and Adam Berry on the new grades and onwards and upwards to the next grade for everyone at the club; the club is gathering momentum in both Judo and BJJ and progressing at a rapid pace, so expect more medals throughout the year!
