The annual Rochdale Judo Club Championships were held on Sunday morning, 24 November where Ryan Kelly, received the Junior Club Champion Trophy.

Archie Dodson received the Most Improved Under 8 years old Trophy, and James Fleming received the Most Improved Over 8 years old Trophy.

The children were put into pools according to, where possible: weight; size; and age. No child was excluded, and fair grouping was an overriding criterion.

Juniors’ coach, Eddie Thomas, 3rd Dan said: “Over 25 young judokas from Rochdale Judo Club attended the Annual Juniors Championship.

“Children from four years up to 14 years old demonstrated their skills and knowledge of the sport of Judo.

“I was impressed with the mindset and good sporting attitudes of the children shown on the day.”
