MSMAS Judo welcomes BJA Southern Area Examiner to 3rd Quarter Judo Grading..

Peter Powell, also Vice Chair of BJA Hampshire County, held a packed Senior Judo Mat to carry out a number of Gradings and Grade transfers..

So, look out for MSMAS Judo in 2009 at all levels of Judo...

In 2008, MSMAS Judo enjoyed a 100% Medal success run, with MSMAS Players winning Medals at every event they entered throughout the year.

MSMAS enters 2009 as home to several GB Judo Squad Players, including two Great Britain Masters Judo Champions, plus both the National BJA & BSJA Junior Champion and even a World’s Judo Medalist !

Also MSMAS Junior Judo Player Martyn Woodhead gained an 'England Judo' place following his GOLD at the '2008 British Championships' (formerly National Age Banded) by winning all of his bouts, each within 1 minute, all with straight Ippons, in preparation for possible progression to the British Judo Association's 'World Class Start Programme', with the ultimate goal of competing at the 'Worlds' and possibly 'Olympic Games'.

In the past MSMAS Players have competed for Sussex County, Southern Area, Nationally & Internationally and one even has a Commonwealth Medal....

Finally, other local Judo Clubs have Members, even Instructors, who have all been past Members and competed for MSMAS......

2009 a fresh year and a new start, we can only wonder where it will take us !
