MSMAS Junior Judo Player Martyn Woodhead gains 'England Judo' place !

Following his success at all levels in competitive Judo, Martyn Woodhead has now gained an 'England Judo' place ....



Martyn Woodhead, a Junior Judo Player and Member of The Mid Sussex Martial Arts School, located just outside of Haywards Heath, has this year enjoyed a fantastic year !

Now, he has been selected for the ‘England Junior Judo Squad’.

The selection of Martyn, a pupil at Warden Park School, to the ‘England Judo Squad’ has come as no surprise to all of us at The Mid Sussex Martial Arts School who have watched his progress throughout 2008, when he has stood astride the podium at now fewer than three of the following major events alone….

• March:         GOLD: British School Judo Association Nationals
• June:            GOLD: South of England Open Championships  
• September:  GOLD: Heart of England Championships   

Then in October he swept to victory again, with yet another GOLD, this time at the ‘2008 British Championships’ with yet another straight win with three Ippon, or maximum wins, to seal victory.

All this, and Martyn is still just 12 years old….

Naturally, we are delighted to see Martyn take this place in the ‘England Judo Squad’, especially at such a young age, not only for himself but also for all our ‘up and coming’ Juniors at MSMAS.

His talent is unquestionable, so his place on this Squad should stand him in good stead in his preparation for possible progression to the British Judo Association's 'World Class Start Programme', thereafter the possibilities for Martyn are endless.

Go Martyn !!
