Patrick Dawson Judo

There is no try, only do, or don't do!The real success is in the effort you put in to achieving your goals.

About me

I started the sport of judo at the age of 17 when a friend from school suggested I come along to his club. I was very lucky in that I walked into what was at the time the strongest judo club in Great Britain and I immediately fell in love with the sport.

Everything I have done since that day has been towards my goals of performing at European, World or Olympic games. I believe that no one in the sport of judo has the mental strength to keep training harder or longer than I do.
