🏆Why the move?🏆
The club has achieved incredible heights in just 3 years. The move will provide opportunity to introduce new classes, coaching development and introduce more children and adults to the sport.
Also, the club will now have greater control over the financial side allowing us to give back more.. With this, we can provide more coaching development, travel expenses for international competitors, travel fees for coaches, and much more.

Ten Time Gold!!!

Dan Hankinson Returned home to St Annes Keidokwai Judo Club where he started his journey in 2015!!
He returned with his tenth GOLD medal after his stunning performance this past weekend.

Dan has proved to be one of the hardest workers at Keidokwai and he is the clubs current most active competitor. He attends all Keidokwai Weekly sessions in St Annes & Blackpool as well as regular visiting other clubs during the week.

In his very short time in the sport, Dan already has an impressive list of credentials which include 10 Gold, 6 Silver and 2 Bronze medals. Along with this, he has won multiple championships such as the Lancashire title, and other prestige titles in Craven, Sheffield and Kendal. Following all this Dan has the honour of earning Blackpool Keidokwai player of the year 2 years running in both 2016 and 2017 being only the second person in the 76-year history to earn this back to back! All these credentials in less than 3 years

Dan first made a name for himself when he Became the Lancashire Judo champion at the start of 2017 which included 2 dominate victories over Blue belts. Dan was only an orange belt at the time and found himself as the lowest senior grade to have made the Regional Squad. On the same day, Dan entered an open grade & and weight tournament defeating green, blue and brown belts storming to the finals!

No talent here, just hard work, passion and dedication.

Dan competes once again for the Lancashire Championship this Sunday and again in October for his first National event as a blue belt!

Dan’s coach; Ross promises that there are many exciting things lined up for Dan in upcoming months that will be announced very soon.

Congratulations!!

Inspirational Success

Wow! More major success!!!

Yesterday was the Adaptive British Open Championships and we could not be prouder of our team! Many individuals and teams packed the stunning stadium to take part. Competitors from Germany, France Norway, and of course Great Britain just to name a few!

First up we had our reigning and 2-time British Champion Neil Bennett finding himself as the lower grade in his category once again. Working a solid gameplan and utilising the ability to adapt and overcome,  all Neils hard work certainly paid off as he won all his contest to claim his 3rd British Championship in a row!!!

What makes this more incredible is Neil only started Judo in January 2016 at the age of 43. Already capturing 3 National championships competing against much higher grades. Neil has unlocked the opportunity to compete for potential European and World Championships in 2019. Hard work pays off, dreams do come true.

Next up we had Jake Pasquill who at just 9 years old finds himself at such a prestige event! Jake is a true inspiration to his team and coaches with his positive demeanour and beaming smile! Jake has worked hard which has included training sessions with the British Paralympic team. Yesterday was truly one of Jakes greatest performances as he applied a great game plan and applied all instructors from myself in his corner. Jake secured a truly earned Silver medal Just missing out on Gold by a minor score to a much higher graded opponent. Again, an incredible story as Jake has only been in the sport for 2 years and finds himself competing in this major event.

Many opportunities for Jake have presented himself such as an invite to join The England Squad program which is a development program aiming to prepare players with the necessary technical, tactical, physical, mental and lifestyle attributes to progress through the GB Pathway onto the World Class Performance Programme (WCPP) and achieve success at senior international level.

Jake Has the opportunity to also continue training with the Visually impaired British team and aspire for Paralympic level.

So proud of these two inspirational individuals!

Congrats to Neil and Jake.

A major thank you to all the team, players, coaches and parents. Ross Goodwin for all his coaching and hard work for these two. Ray Pasquill for his support of Jake and Neil at yesterdays event

Proud to be Keidokwai. 76 years of Judo excellence!

 

Fighting Films Trophy

Congratulations to our Team today! As all did an amazing job at the Fighting Films Trophy.

Well done to Ross, Issac, Dan, Ryan, Sorina, Callum and Christian!!

Callum – Kicked off the day in the busiest coloured belt category by starting strong winning his first contest in no time at all with a well worked decisive ippon! This was followed by many more well-worked throws and another big ippon throw in his later fights. Callum has really stepped up in training recently and he has applied it to today’s contests. Amazing job from Callum.

Next up was Dan & Issac who have always been consistent in tournaments. Today, however, they met in the same category and of course, they fought each other for the GOLD prize. Both displaying so much relaxed and composed skills and proving they are comfortable standing or on the ground. Quality efforts from both lads. Dan Gold, Issac silver.

We also had Christian in a new weight category as Christian has worked hard all year reducing his weight. Christian continues to improve every single contest and shown a tonne of heart once he was put into an arm lock and fought out of it. One of Christians top performances. Respect to Christian as due to work commitments he has struggled to attend the majority of training, however, he still enters and gets stuck into comps!!

Next, we had Sorina who is continuing to make a lot of noise in the female divisions. A major step up for Sorina and a great display of solid work and resilience. Sorina secured Silver in her category and then decided to enter the Female dan grade category to make the numbers up. Sorina secured another Silver!!

Ryan – An absolute force! Intimidating power and so unpredictable. Ryan displayed some monster throws along with some good tactical game planning. Ryan proves he can finish he contests whenever they may end up. Wicked technique displayed secures Ryan the Silver medal!

Ross – Finished the day in the busiest Black belt category! Ross absolutely stormed to the final which including tactical sound game planning, An 8-second win in his first contest and a pearler of an ippon in his later contest. Ross never stopped working and continued to work with constant pressure and his foot on the gas!! Going the distance in the final but missed out on points. Ross Claims Silver today!

A top event! Thank you to everyone involved. Big thanks to Issac and Dan who went on to support other teammates matside.

And thank you to Dave for coming down for the support.

Great day! Proud to be Keidokwai

Ross – Great display of Judo with a flawless day. We saw smart game planning and tactical Judo along with quick finishes.

Ross secures a Gold Medal. ️

Dan – Continuing his tremendous rise in the sport. Dan displayed some strong Judo along with well worked and expertly timed techniques. On paper, Dan may have been the underdog as all his opponents were 2 weights above Dans category. But with his solid preparation, nothing could have phased him today. Dan earns himself a Gold Medal. ️

We are proud to say that Judo helps in so many other ways on and off the mat. We had Adam Cox and Ross Goodwin jump into the world of pro wrestling. They both took part in a major event which raised thousands for multiple charities. A spectacular show which saw Adam Cox take on two of Britains top wrestling talent. And we saw Ross secure a victory in the main event over the current Heavyweight champion!!
