The BC Judo Championships were held in Abbotsford, BC on October 18. I had two of my students competing in the tournament and as usual I was there shooting pictures. It was a tough day for me, personally, as I had just re-torn my MCL in my right knee the night before… I felt a bit like someone had taken a baseball bat to my knee that morning. I had to go, though… I told my students that I would be there to cheer/coach them on. My club, The Burnaby Judo Club, did fairly well, although at our senior levels, there were a few let downs. My two students had mixed result. It was their first tournament and nerves were definitely a factor. Importantly, everyone competed hard and I’m looking forward to seeing them again in the November Tournament.
The whole set of pictures is available at:
I hope you enjoy them!
