Mark Poole (aka Marvellous Marv) joined the Destination Judo coaching team, as a young inspiring junior judo coach.

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of judoka Finlay Bennett, who contracted meningitis in the Summer and died from complications.   Eight year old Finlay attended Destination Judo in Dunfermline.  He was a third Mon; a fine and spirited young lad, who had just been invited to join the squad.  Finlay loved his judo and we will miss him very much.

Our condolences, love and best wishes go to Finlay’s family and friends.
