On another frantic weekend for projudo, we had eleven young competitors at the British Schools championships in Sheffield.
Arad, Alice, Hattie, Rachel, Esther, Charlie and Noah led the charge on day one.
Oscar, Cassidy, Finlay and Lewis fought on day two.
The hard work in training continues to deliver results and our fighters left nothing on the mat.
Team coach , Jack Murphy, was pleased with the medal tally of 1 gold, 2 silvers and 3 bronzes – but was bowled over with the skill, effort and commitment from all of our judoka.
The parents did a wonderful job of supporting all the players as they once again displayed courage and real team spirit – with no shortage of fabulous judo on display.
Whilst all this was going on, our Team Scotland Development players – ineligible for the British schools- were being put through their paces by JudoScotland coaches at the National Centre in Ratho. Mark Goldie was there to lend a supporting hand to the National coaches – not just for the benefit of our players – but also to assist the athletes from other clubs.
Despite so many players being involved in competition or at National training – the rest of the squad were kept busy at the city centre dojo where Claire McDonald took the opportunity to introduce the athletes to some new strength and conditioning skills.
Saturday is one of the busiest days of the week for Projudo – with classes right across the city and beyond.
It is thanks to the dedication, enthusiasm and a real love for judo from our superb coaching team that we are able to run lively and exciting judo sessions for everyone across the entire club with all this going on as well.
