Rochdale Judo Club (RJC) held a grading examination on Sunday 17 November and 23 junior judokas were graded.

The players have trained for months for the examination and put on a very skilful display for their coaches, examiners and parents.

Ages ranged from five-years-old to 14-years-old.

Warren Schofield 7th Dan, British Judo Association Senior Examiner: "I have to say thank you to all our parents who bring their children every week to train, without their support we would have no-one here to train.

“I was particularly impressed today by the standard of Judo and also the high discipline demonstrated by all the children."

“I would also like to thank Juniors Coach Eddie Thomas for the good work done by our coaching team who, week after week, put the judokas through their paces, constantly ensuring that all our children make progress.”

Juniors Coach Eddie Thomas 3rd Dan said: "Thank you for all the support the parents give each week, it’s really good to see the children progress, and the grading today was excellent.

“All the children have worked very hard, whilst enjoying themselves.

“It’s great to see all their smiling faces after their examination and their proud parents after watching some exciting judo.”

Rochdale Judo Club was established in 1950 and provides UK Coaching Certificate and British Judo Association registered judo training from experienced, certified and accomplished players.

Offering both senior and junior classes to all people of any experience and fitness level – all female and male judo players are welcome.
