Isaac Bezzina

When did you start Judo?

I started Judo at the age of four.

Why did you start Judo?

I did various sports at a young age and with my father in his first few years of coaching after ending his fighting career, naturally Judo was one of the sports I was exposed to.

What do you value the most?

Most of all would be faith, dedication, integrity and equality, along with a few other values.

Are you a glass half empty or glass half full kind of person?

Most of the time I’m a glass half full person.

If you could do anything in the world what would it be?

I always thought it would be awesome to work for NASA judging by how great it looks in movies about space hehe.

Where do you want to be in 5-10 years from now?

I don’t really think way ahead. I’m a day by day sort of guy. I work towards goals that are in the future but keep my head down at the task the day ahead of me presents.
