Yesterday I competed in the National Teams competition in Cardiff representing the Midland area.
I competed as part of the cadet team (age 15-18) & was also invited to represent the Seniors (age 15+) in -52kg. In both teams we competed against other regional teams.
In cadets we were against four teams and got knocked out of our group.
In seniors we had three fight to start with and came second in our pool. We then got through to the finales and won against Northern Home Counties winning gold.
Yesterday, I got back from Sweden. I had an amazing experience. I did three days of training after the judo competition which included a morning and afternoon session each day. During these sessions I was able to learn new techniques from different coaches from around the world and also practice my new techniques in the randori.
At the weekend I took part in my clubs grading and training camp. I passed my grading so I am now a brown belt.
On Sunday I took part in the Sportif international competition in London, I won my first fight but then got injured in my second fight. I also attended the two day training camp where I learnt lots of new techniques some of these sessions were run by famous judo players like Neil Adams and Nekoda Smythe-Davis.

On Saturday I took part in the monthly England squad training in Birmingham. It was a good session and in the morning we took part in a technical session where we learnt how to improve our judo and in the afternoon we did a randori session.
