This weekend saw the REDS Minors and Pre-Cadets take their turn in returning to England Pathway delivery.
For most, this meant outdoor conditioning, which was facilitated by High Wycombe Judo Club and Bishops Stortford Judo. Despite the cold and windy conditions, the attitude to training was fantastic and there were plenty of smiles on faces. This was made even more enjoyable as it gave an opportunity for the fighters to see some of their Judo friends who they might not have seen for many months.
For those who live in areas with higher restrictions, a virtual session was provided with a mixture of judo movement training and conditioning. This had a very good engagement, and everyone worked hard.
Going forward, the England programme will continue to try and give everyone on the programme opportunities to train by offering both types of training side by side.
Lastly, thank you to the club coaches who gave up their time to come and support these sessions. It is, as always, very much appreciated.
