Judo club, Basingstoke, BJA, Martial Arts BasingstokeAt our Judo club in Basingstoke, we encourage members to seek new challenges to develop their skills. This is exactly what one of our members, Gavin Downey, did when he entered the British Judo Association’s British Open Judo Champions in Scotland on 27th August.

 Gavin is no stranger to success at Judo and despite the competition being harder with competitors travelling from other European Countries to take part, Gavin won a Bronze Medal. During the day he showed good performance in both groundwork and stand up work.

As an additional piece of good news Gavin was also promoted to 3rd Kyu at the event. It must be his month for success as he also during August passed his next Karate grading.

We wish Gavin well and look forward to him developing his skills and knowledge further.
