Judo Senior Nationals was held here in Virginia Beach where competitors from all over came to test their skills on the mat in an Olympic sport. Judokas competed in categories from the visually impaired, international Masters, Brown Belt and Kata divisions.
Among the great Judo matches, some of our IMPACT students got the chance to meet Olympic gold medalist Kayla Harrison and bronze medalist Marti Malloy who took the time to encourage them and took some pictures.
"It was awesome for the kids to meet such great role models and they took the time out to encourage them." R. Madigan
