24-Feb-2013   -   SANJA O’DONOHUE INTERVIEW Q & As

What motivated you to get started in judo? 

My 8 year old son Milos. I wanted to be a good role model, build even stronger relationship with my boy in a fun and safe environment and to promote a healthy lifestyle that would be fun for all the family. After having kids the greatest benefit was to re store my fitness and  the confidence that goes with it.

What did you find the most useful in preparing for the titles?

Adhering to regular training  both in the Dojo and in the gym and listening to the tips of my seniors especially my Coach.

Who would you like to thank or recognize as your support network?

I can’t go without mentioning my coach Ken McKenzie, my fellow club members and my children and family who inspire and support me .

What are your future goals?

My future goal is to go as far with Judo as possibly I can and be proud representative for  Newcastle on every level.

What have you enjoyed the most in your preparations?

Getting fit, learning self-defence,  meeting some great people that I train with on regular basis, travelling to different places. Overall, Judo is not just the sport for me but a lifestyle.  I have found my personal motto by Judo 10th dan Keiko Fukuda - Her personal motto was: "Be gentle, kind, and beautiful, yet firm and strong - both physically and mentally". This is so true and this is how I feel. Judo is a wonderful sport that brings best in you.

Have you faced any challenges?

Only challenge from time to time is training with strong men, but they all look after me well. Trainings are very tough but enjoyable and fun.
