Barbados Grappling Tournament 2019

Grappling tactics and a lot of fighting spirit were demonstrated by the competitors at the recently held 2019 Barbados Judo Association Grappling Tournament, at the Marine Gardens Dojo. Among the invited guests and patrons were His Excellency Teruhiko Shinada AMBASSADOR OF JAPAN, Ms. Hisae Minami the First Secretary and Barbados Olympic Association Operations Manager Mr. Glyne Clarke.

Ambassador Shinada in his remarks made mention that " Judo is not merely a sport meant to strengthen one's physical capabilities, but one that also contributes to the cultivation of decent behaviour and spiritual discipline".  Special mention was made of the REI (bowing). This he noted " in Japanese refers to having pleasant manner and showing good spotsmanship and respect to others. "REI ", he stated " is not only relevant in your practice of judo on the tatami, but it should also resonate in your everyday life".

When the tournament concluded Marine Gardens Judo Club (MGJC) once again delivered, taking the top spot while the St Cyprian’s Boys school (SCB) took the second place. The other competing teams were; in third place Barbados Academy of Martial Arts (BAM), Phoenix Judo Club (PJC), Keikath School of Martial Arts (KEI), and The Legacy Preparatory School(LPS).
