Why I love what I do

Judo has given me confidence, respect, discipline and other positive attributes which has helped me through life. Judo has kept me fit and provided me a focus which has kept me out of trouble. Through Judo I have made many friends and have visited many different places. It’s my passion now to give back to the sport by passing my knowledge and experience onto others. Judo brings people from all different walks of life together and as a judo club we are like a family. It gives me great joy to see how fast kangei Judo Club is developing and how much we have helped people though the sport of Judo already.
