On the 2nd of February (2019) Sheffield University Judo club went on what is turning into an annual trip to Warwick university to take part in their annual competition.
With categories nicely setup for beginners (novices, reds and yellows in a group with green+ separate) it's an event we like to support.
For several of our players it was their first experience of Judo competition since starting with the club in September.
Well done all who took part:
|Aidan Lowery (Green)||Orange - blue||Bronze|
|Phil Strutt (Blue)||Orange - blue|
|Jules Harvey (Blue)||Orange - blue||Gold|
|Alex Donaldson (Green)||Orange - blue|
|Aldair Silva (Red)||Up to yellow||Gold||First competition|
|Poppy Forshaw-Perrins (Red)||Up to yellow||Gold||First competition|
|Eldar Rahimov (Red)||Up to yellow||Bronze||First competition|
|Kai Ames (Red)||Up to yellow||Bronze||First competition|
|Alex Smith (Red)||Up to yellow||First competition|
Safe to say it was a tiring day, with most of the competitors sleeping on the team bus all the way home, including our 2018/19 captain, Aiden Lowery.
It's that time of year again! We have our upcoming annual Kyu-Grade tournament on Saturday 1st December.
