Girl Scout Daisy Troop 4028 and a few of their parents recently received a Judo lesson from community member Jay Watts with Capital City Judo. Our troop wanted to publicly thank Mr. Watts and his two young lady assistants for much more than just a Judo lesson.
Without having to say the words Mr. Watts taught his new students about respect for a culture, your teacher and your partner, to name just a few. The girls didn't know they were getting exercise because Mr. Watts made implementation of basic skills a game. I heard a few parents mention how their quads woke up and some even broke a bit of a sweat. Judo is a very athletic sport! He managed to turn the physical and mental exercise into a lot of fun.
The last lesson Mr. Watts taught his new students was that if they put their mind to it and added a lot of hard work, they can accomplish just about anything. He had two prime examples in the two young lady assistants and lauded their hard work and their recent achievements at Junior Olympics.
Daisy Troop 4028 can't wait to reach the age of 8 which is the minimum age to join Capital City Judo! Thank you Mr. Watts for all you do for this community.
