Eric Salway

Head Coach and Chairman of the club
Eric has been a black belt since 1979 and a BJA level 2 coach since 1999. He currently runs five after school clubs in the Cleveland area and works Monday to Friday in schools during curriculum time teaching judo to children ranging from Yr 3 to Yr 11. He is also involved with the Premier League 4 Sports initiative linked with Middlesbrough Football Club and the Government to get young children involved with the sport of judo. This helps to develop a strong link between school children in local schools and their local judo club (The Rainbow) and ensures they have somewhere to continue with their judo development and a healthy membership at the Rainbow Judo Club. In between all of this he runs his own driving school, called Upwardly Mobile Driving School, which he established in 2002.
