The Vernon Judo Club sent two competitors, three referees and three coaches to Steveston for the first event in the 2018 season. Nadine Bond got a bronze in her U16-44 division and a silver in U18-44. Kiyoshi Comley got bronze in U16-46—his first event as an under 16 competitor—where shimewa gets added for intermediate and advanced competitors. Sydney Grevatt both received her Provincial B refereeing accreditation and successfully demonstrated Nage no Kata in front of the provincial grading board to complete requirements for/receive her shodan first-degree black belt. We are all very proud of Sydney as these are significant achievements for a high school senior. We are likewise proud of Donna who accepted the nomination to become the president of Judo BC at the November AGM.
