An enthusiastic group of judokas from Fernie, Creston and Invermere participated at the Regional Training this weekend at the Debbie Seel Centre. The training sessions were given by Renee Hock, a fourth degree belt, and a one-time junior and four-times senior Canadian champion.
The instructions were clear and precise with advanced techniques shown, with all athletes gaining knowledge as they practised as a group, true to the saying: “ In skill opposed, in spirit united”.
The Regional Training gives points towards the B.C. Team selection for the upcoming Canadian Championship. Mackenzie Dubois, Marcia Paget and Emma Norquay are working toward acceptance.
The next events will be a tournament in Fernie at the end of January, followed by the B.C. Championship in Langley in February. Credits to our coaches Karen Sharp, Bob Gadsby and Mark Digney who are working with enthusiasm. Our athletes are progressing in their knowledge of Judo. Keep it up and see you on the tatame.
