Judo classes will be held on Saturday 10 February per the invoice.
Congratulations to Oliver Russell who was promoted to 1st dan black belt on 3 February at the age of 15.  In addition to technical theory, Oliver had to beat 10 adults by ippon - which he did with style.
James also secured another 10 points towards his black belt - now totalling 70 towards the 100 required.
"A black belt is a white belt who did not quit."
Our players have been out in force over the last few weeks at the British Schools Qualifier events.  At Medway the results were: Ella (Gold), Zac (silver), Romain (bronze) and Jakub (bronze).  At High Wycombe, the results were:  Ella (Gold), Amelia (silver), Bethany (Silver), Frankie (bronze), Jakub (bronze), Romain (5th), James (5th) 
Mike and Matty will be participating in coach revalidation training with Hiroshi Katanishi, 8th dan (Kodokan) during February.  Sensei Katanishi is former student of Tenri University, former national coach for France, and accredited European Judo Expert (along with Neil Adams 8th dan).  Most of the technical work in the senior classes and advanced junior classes is based on the advice of Sensei Katanishi.
