Student gets gold in Judo

A sporting student has been awarded Gold for his Judo achievements at his club in Redruth.


Aaron Knuckey, Year 7, was given the accolade for his achievements in Judo and for being the most improved judoka in Redruth Judo club for 2018.

His family is very proud of him for the achievement as well as seeing him growing in confidence.

Aaron, a former Illogan Primary School pupil, has been practising Judo for the last two years and has worked his way up to an orange belt with two green stripes. This means he is close to achieving his green belt in the sport.

Sam, Aaron’s mum, said: “Aaron is following in his dad’s footsteps who was Cornish County Champion at aged 13. 
“We are very proud of him as he has developed this skill and overcome some of his trepidation and built his confidence.”
