Birthday Dave 6th Dan
Dave Boulding 6th Dan celebrated his birthday on Sunday he started judo with me in 1971 when he moved from London where he had been training at the London Judo Society and came to me as a 3rd Kyu Green Belt. I was only a 1st Dan at the time and Dave became my first student to become a Black Belt 1st along with Trevor Davies and Martin Wyer (deceased). He has shown totally loyalty to the Young Judo Club and the International Budo Federation over all those years and more importantly he has become a good friend of mine. Dave still teaches as well as supervising competitions and courses, he is a Member of the IBF Judo Committee. He also won a Silver medal in the World Masters Sambo in Malta in 1999.
Dave recently had a little spell in hospital and is now on the mend Happy Birthday Dave
