Club President, George Kerr is coming to the International School of Aberdeen theatre to give a talk on his life in Judo. From humble beginnings, learning Judo in Edinburgh to reaching the highest level of Judo earning his 10th Dan, George will talk us through his journey which took him all over the world and earned him the nickname of Mr Judo. He will talk of the highs and lows of trying to become the world's best, the friendships made, and his experiences earning top honours from Her Majesty the Queen and the Emperor of Japan.
