Referee David Tooby explained competition etiquette, such as entering and leaving the area, which belt to wear etc., and the importance of osaekomi and toketa. The scoreboard was also explained.
Players then took part in a round robin match, with explanation of the scores, penalties etc., as they occurred.
Our four players all behaved impeccably, and demonstrated some good judo skills. It was particularly pleasing to see them all developing over the course of their three or four contests.
- Noah Grainger – GOLD
- Alex Lane – GOLD (and quickest ippon throw of the day…)
- Jeremy Allen – BRONZE
- Oliver Jones – BRONZE
