An enormous congratulations to Alexis Bardini for receiving his 1st Dan tonight. Alexis has been training at the Sobell since he was a young primary student some 12 years ago!
Since, he has become a truly remarkable judoka. Throughout his career Alexis has picked up a large collection of both national and international medals whilst serving as a member of the JFAUK national team.
Besides being a fierce competitor, Alexis is an impeccable technician often found passing his knowledge over to lower grades at the club or assisting the teaching team with his superb skills as an uke.
We couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of a 1st Dan. Congratulations once again, but now the hard work truly begins!
