  1. The new guy at Wild Geese is honoured to be mentioned in the same breath as the existing instructors who are all so competent and dedicated to their chosen fields. I am also delighted at the welcome and respect which everyone I have come in contact with has afforded me. Judo has been very good to me since the day I first started in the Dublin Judo Club in Parkgate Street and I am happy to share it with all comers. As Dave Hedges said in his Blog please drop in at any time; we are flexible and the classes are still growing. Thank you Paul and Dave for this opportunity.

  2. My love of judo in all its aspects both social and competitive,an understanding wife, and a steady income up ’til recently have allowed me to travel this year to Waterford,Kilkenny,Galway,Cork,Budapest,High Wycombe, Finglas and Atlanta Georgia and collect 13 medals. I’m not superstitious but a very nice Russian gave me a minor rotary cuff injury in the 13th Competition which prevented me from taking part in the Irish Judo Open this Month. Luckily my daughter Lisa who only trains once a week officially (she does secret repetition techniques with me some mornings) won a Bronze Medal and was unable to wait around all day.
    I had to collect her medal at the Ceremony which enables me to proudly maintain that I have collected a medal at every Event I attended so far in 2009! Best Year ever.
