Brian Marshall and his sons, Liam and Sean, attended.

“Brian has been out of judo for at least 10 years and is keen to compete again and his kids are also keen,” said WLJC Sensei Jeff DiMarco. “It was a great experience for them all.”

Brian finished the tournament with two wins and a loss, Sean won one and lost three and Liam, a yellow belt, was defeated in all four of his matchups.

“Every tournament you learn something, especially when you don’t win,” DiMarco said. “You go home and rethink and regroup and hopefully come out great guns at the next tournament.”

DiMarco said up to eight WLJC members will be attending a tournament in Burnaby on Dec. 5.
