This bronze medal is very special, with the Paris tournament being one of the strongest and toughest to compete at any time in the Olympic cycle.

Mounir won a bronze in a very big group. Dlair placed 7th. Sofia was unplaced but pleased to have won a contest at such a high quality event. 

17/18th March 2018 - British Schools Championships, Sheffield

We had a disappointing weekend in Sheffield. Alex, Francesca, Adam and Connor all approached the event positively but a mixture of things prevented them from displaying their best work and kept them shy of the rostrum. Connor just missed out, losing for bronze in the older age band and having to fight up at -60 with there being no-55kg group offered.

13th April - Judo Klub Sankaku Friendly Team Match, Slovenia

What an absolute treat! We travelled to Celje, Slovenia for a week of full time training with a world class team, including Olympic medalists, European Champions and a team of outstanding coaches. While there we decided to contest a friendly team match. We faced a team from the home club, including a number of national champions and a mixed team of other visitors, including a Sri Lankan Olympian. Quite a challenge! 

We lost each match 4-3, with some cracking performances from all. Luke beat two Slovenian national champions, Ben went full time with an Olympian, so many great moments. Huge thanks to the Sankaku hosts for such a brilliant experience and for our team trophy, despite coming 3rd out of 3! 

Above: everyone who took part in this team event and those who came to support and enjoy. 

Bronzes for Peter Davies, Luke Davies, Connor Gossedge, Adam Burt, Elena Bob, Ben Westcott and Silviu Nastasa. 

Ptuja Open Slovenian Ranking Tournament, Slovenia

Above: the EJC team in Ptuja.

Little Peter Davies had 4 incredibly tough contests against opponents from Slovenia, Austria and Romania. Peter threw all opponents for the wins, with the final going into golden score before a massive ura-nage secured the gold Medal. This was particularly pleasing as 11 year old Peter was the youngest in the group, which was -15. 

In the same age band Luke fought up a weight as there was no opposition at his usual -46kg. He won all 3 contests to win gold. Connor and Adam continued the good form winning a silver and bronze respectively at -60kg in the Cadet age band. Well done to all 4 boys.

Above: our medalists with the Sankaku head coach, Fabjan. 

21st & 22nd April - Northern Ireland Open, Derry

On Saturday Connor won gold in the Junior (-31) age band, Silviu won bronze in the senior event and Cedric, despite and early win, missed out on a medal in the Masters category.

26th April - European Championships, Tel Aviv, Israel

Nekoda had a challenging day in Tel Aviv, unexpectedly losing her first round contest to a relative newcomer, but tough opponent, Cysique of France. Always lessons to be learned and we are sure this event will serve Nekoda well as she heads into the qualification period for Tokyo 2020. Always proud. 

28th April - English Pre-Cadet & Cadet Open, Walsall
