When needed I fight for Judo Club Jura in the Suisse Ligue. They compete in the highest league within Switzerland and this is a good way for us to get some ‘match practice’ as well as getting paid, which always helps!
This weekend, we fought at Judo Club Brugge, these are the main club in Switzerland and have been Suisse Champions for the last 8 years, missing out on their 9th consecutive title last year, losing in the finals.
For Judo Club Jura this was always going to be a tough ask after only getting promoted into this league last year. I fought up a weight this weekend at -90 kilo’s. I fought the same lad twice, managing to get two wins and a couple of good matches. However unfortunately the team couldn’t manage to come away with the W.
Back to Camberley now where I will be training for another two weeks, before heading out to Japan for some training, heading into the China Grand Prix 25/5/18 (The start of Olympic Qualification).
