How many Judoka actually make it as an elite athlete? not too many! My message here to the students is the importance of their education. We made a no compromise agreement with the students that if course work at college is not up to date then they dont train. A very simple rule which is key to their individual education but also something that lays important foundations as an athelete. Sometimes we have to do things we dont like in order to improve. Please dont forget this – you may not thank your lecturers now but you may wish you had of done in 10 years time.
