An amazing 1st Place for Kate, at the English Open in Thetford. As a club our first Open Champion and for Kate a first of many we hope. Currently placed 4th in GB rankings for cadets u18 years and 6th in juniors u21. The future is bright for this young lady.
Success at the first event of the year, The Scottish Open Championships. Ben fought in the Junior and senior category and took two amazing Bronze medals. Kate, her first after injury, made a great come back taking Bronze in the cadets, whilst Ace also did Junior and senior taking Silver and Bronze respectively.
Ben Barkby, Junior u21 years, U60kg Bronze medallist at the BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS 2022.
Lucy aged 12, is our first time keeper for the BJA. She is a great young table official and hopefully will go on and qualify for more in 2023. She even spends time on the table, between fighting in competitions herself.
ACE EDWARDS OF R.K.JUDO CLUB GAINS HER 1ST DAN BLACK BELT IN JUDO
English champion senior u48kg 2022. Ace Edwards secures her place on the England Talent Development Squad for the second year running, taking the Silver in the juniors and Gold in the seniors.
Ace Edwards and Kate Chisholm were selected to represent the Midland Area in the come back of the National Team Championships. What an honour to represent your Area from such a large choice of members, not only for them but the club too. And to make the experience even better the Team got themselves into the final, eventually winning Silver with some outstanding judo and team spirit. Well done MIDLAND AREA BJA.
We are so lucky to know professional people that can look after our members of all ages and their health. Emily of Endurance Sports Massage Therapy, did a treatment session for us all at the club. She gave advice, treatment and future help to judoka, parents and sensei from 10 years old. She is fabulous and would highly recommend her services. Looking after our athletes is very important. Thank you Emily.

WOW, what a day. This Charity event never fails to deliver and this year was no exception. A great event, lovely atmosphere and wonderful lovely people. Our four raiders did us proud once again, helping to raise money for such a good cause, while achieving judo goals. Camryn won Bronze in the u14 years, Ace and Kate both won two Golds each in the u18 and senior categories, while Ben won Gold in the seniors. Well done everyone thats makes this event possible. #teenagecancertrust
Great to back in Northern Ireland. This year we had four players representing R.K, Kate, Ace, James and Ben. All took medals and ranking points. Kate, Ace and James fought in both cadets and Juniors, while Kate also took on the senior category at only 14 years old. Cadet Bronze and 7th place junior for James, Ace 2 bronzes and Kate 3 silver. Ben taking Bronze in the Juniors. Great results, showing some impressive judo along the way,
Kate Chisholm, one of our Spanish/British members, just age 14, in her first year of cadets at British Judo level, took a Bronze medal u48kg at the recent British Championships in Sheffield, English Institute of Sport. After just two competitions to get used to the new weight and age group, post covid, she narrowly missed out on a place in the final, but made the bronze medal match her own.
First trip abroad since pre covid, to the Lugi judo Cup in Sweden. A fantastic event, that we have competed at several times. Taking to the stage this year was Kate. Ace, Ben and Lisa. Fighting both days in two categories each, they came home with Kate - Silver (cadets), Bronze ( pre cadets), Ace - Bronze (juniors), Ben - Silver ( juniors and seniors) and Lisa - 5th (seniors), Bronze (juniors). Outstanding performances by all.
As Sunday's are normally in the local park, doing our fitness boot camps, this week we booked ourselves on the Assault Course @fieldsportuk for a change. So much Fun for everyone. Energetic and challenging but we all loved it. Star of the morning though was Ben Barkby and Ace Edwards, breaking the course record for both male and female. Well done you two. Judo has its benefits hey ;)
