Team Judo Kai would like to take a moment to recognize our grads this year. Many of you will be going to new schools, and enjoying amazing new experiences, and we are all very proud of you.

On a personal note I would like to say Congratulations to my partner on the mats Abbi McCoullough. Abbi has graduated from J.L. Ilsley school with honours, moving on to University in the fall.

Team Judo Kai would not be what it is without you. You have been instrumental to our success from day one and I appreciate you!

Please join me below in wishing Abbi and all of our graduates good luck!
