I started judo at the age of 12 when kyoshi started a club at Sir Harry Smith Community College. I was there from day 1 and I fell in love with the sport. Over the 4 years as a junior I reached the level of brown and black belt, I then graded as a senior and reached the level of brown belt. I took my shodan ho grading just before Christmas 2013. During my time spent at the club I have attended 3 competition, 2 summer schools, a judo demonstration and the martial arts expo in Coventry.
