Judo Masterclass with Owen Livesey

As ive been lazy and this is my first blog, im going to take you back in time to July 2016. Myself and my youngest son Joshua are members of Leigh Judo Club. We became members back in April of 2016 and to be honest we both love it.

I've studied martial arts from being 10 years old however with me being the tender age of 36 and a beginner at Judo, I always seem to have a new injury lol.

This also happened to be why when I was invited to a Masterclass with British Judoka Owen Livesey I only managed to get on the mat to take photographs. (no training for me.....very sad, very sad indeed)

Owen is, as above, a British athlete who competes in judo at an international level for Great Britain and England. Owen won a gold medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in the Men's 81kg judo.

It was an extra treat for everyone as Owen also brought along his two sisters, Bekky and Amy Livesey.

Enjoy the images produced from the day and if you would like to give Judo a try I can highly recommend Leigh Judo Club. The members make everyone feel very welcome and the coaching from the coach Luke Brown is second to none. I will, at some point learn how to throw people. Its not as easy as it looks I assure you lol.

And give the first image a click if you want to visit the clubs website.

John :)
