MSMAS Judo Junior Martyn Woodhead takes Gold at ‘North West Age Banded Tournament’ in Merseyside,

Martyn Woodhead, today took yet another Gold Judo Medal for MSMAS, this time at the ‘North West Age Banded Tournament’ in Merseyside.


After 3 hard fought bouts, all won with ‘Ippon’ (maximum score win) Martyn took his podium place….

His first bout ended with a great combination, first an initial O-Soto-Gari attack, then switched seamlessly into a big Harai-Goshi, for his first Ippon.

Next, after encountering a Gake attack from his opponent, Martyn saw his chance and immediatley countered it with a huge Uchi-Mata, for his second Ippon of the day.

Finally, after initially trying very hard and yet scoring only a succession of 3 Yukos against his last opponent, Martyn drew this bout to a close with a beautifully executed Ko-Uchi-Gari, for his final Ippon of the day, sealing his overall victory and the Gold Medal….

Therefore, our hearty congratulations to Martyn, but also many thanks to his father for being ‘coach on the day’, plus having played such a significant part in this young man’s continued success, and of course that of many of our other Junior and Youth Players…

Keep it up Martyn !!
