On Sunday 16th September the Blackwater Judo Club (Maldon) took part in the annual Park Lodge Judo Club Newaza (groundwork) competition at North Weald. The event attended by around 70-students of all levels and in the usual manner; the competition was extremely friendly and very well organised.
A big well done to 6-year old Kyle Palmer from the club as this was his first ever competition and he achieved a bronze in his weight category.
The host of the competition also gave special mention to Leanne Taylor for her magnificent achievement of 3-golds; own category, mixed boys, girls, and a special group where she beat a competitor twice her own weight. Also volunteering to take part in special groups was Aaron Vincent, Luke Vincent and Darryl Holloway. Daryl also took a gold when he won the Open Competition.
The result gave an impressive 8-Gold, 9-Silver and 7-Bronze.
