School Games 2017
Last Thursday, I went to Loughborough University to compete in the School Games. I didn't compete until Saturday afternoon but it was still amazing watching all four countries fighting through all categories. On the day that I fought, I had 4 other people in my category and they were some of the best fights that I ever had. I got a bronze medal and I really hope I get to do it again.

On the 15th, I took part in the Sportif international judo competition. I won my first fight but I lost the next two. After the competition, I did the training camp which was amazing. They were many Olympic and Commonwealth fighters leading the sessions like Gemma Gibson and Neil Adams. The camp was 2 days and I trained for 4 hours each day doing standing and groundwork techniques and randori. I really hope I go again next year.

Yesterday, I took a train to train with the AASE players in Cambridge and it was amazing. All the players were super nice to me and I learnt some really cool setups to try and use in randori. Bob and Natasha(the coaches) were really helpful in pointing out where I doing the wrong technique and showed me how to correct the mistake. There was about fifteen people and so it was good to train with lots of different people with a variety of fighting styles. I'm really looking forward to going again and to my competitions in a weeks time.
