Liam Jones, one of Heart of Worcestershire College’s (HoW) learners in Life and Independent Living Skills, is celebrating following his recent success in Judo at the Adaptive World Games in Holland. 

Liam is part of the Kazoku-Kan Judo Club and recently took part in a two-day competition that left him feeling victorious with his results.  

Across the two-day event, Liam achieved three awards with a 2nd place in the world championship for supporting another special needs learner, Silver for Kata and became the World Champion for the SN World Games for his class of Judo – overall leaving him with two Silver placements and World Championship Gold.  

When talking about his experience in Judo and what he enjoys most, Liam said: 

“I have been doing Judo since I was around five years old, and I really enjoy learning and doing different throws. This sport also allows me to get more active, meet new people and see my Judo instructor every week which is something I really enjoy.” 

Liam also spoke about how he felt after the event: 

“The event was quite tough, but I still succeeded and am very happy with my results. When I found out that I had achieved gold I felt extremely proud of myself and was impressed with my achievements. I would like to thank my Judo instructor for getting me there and for helping me practice my Kata.” 

 Commenting on the event, head coach for Kazoku-Kan Judo Club, Richard Morrish also added: 

“This was an absolutely fantastic result that was well deserved.” 

Congratulations on this achievement Liam, HoW College wishes you all the best for your future in Judo!
