Mike will initially be the refief coach, covering other coaches holidays where he's able, however we are hopeful of Mike having a new class of his own before the end of the year.

Mike Nugent, Charles and I have previously trained with Mike and know he has a high technical ability and a solid Judo brain, I'm sure he will be a fantastic edition to our coaching team
