On May 30, 2014 The Abaco Judo Club continued to shock the Judo community as they walked away with the Bahamas Judo Federation’s “Best Judo Club of the Year Award”.

Coach Regina Parotti Kennedy flew to Nassau to represent the club at the awards dinner and was surprised and pleased when the winner was announced.

Upon receiving the award Coach Parotti thanked the students, parent and supporters of the club for making this honour possible.  “This award is a direct reflection on how well our students in Abaco are doing.  It belongs to them,” said Coach Parotti.

According to D’Arcy Rahming, President of the Bahamas Judo Federation, the award was given based on the performances of students in both National and International tournaments.

The next big test for the Abaco Judo Club is the US Open coming up in Florida on July 25 and 26.  “Last year we carried four fighters to this tournament and came home with a silver and a bronze medal.  This year we are taking nine students and are looking forward to winning even more medals,” said Mrs. Parotti.
