On Sunday 24th May 2015, Edinburgh Judo had a visit from Tomoko Fukumi, World Champion, World Silver medallist x2, Masters/Grand Slam/Grand Prix GOLD Medallist x11. Junior World & University Champion plus many other accolades. She is the only judoka to have beaten Ryoko Tani (Tamura) TWICE!

 

This was a once in a lifetime opportunity, for those of us practising judo and also for those who have never stepped foot on the mat, if only just to watch one of the finest Japanese woman delivering absolute mastery of the Japanese national sport of Judo is a LIFE EXPERIENCE FOR ANYBODY!!
 

The sessions were fantastic and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable day. We wish Tomoko lots of success in her new coaching role in Japan.
