The competition, organised by the Bishop Stortford Judokai club, was a fantastic experience for Rush Judo’s young red-belts and they collected their usual great results.

The Berkhamsted-based club took six of their young squad to compete in the competition, primarily based on the more inexperienced judoka.

They returned with five well-deserved medals, including two golds.
