MSMAS Judoka at 2 day National Squad Training in Sheffield....

Once again, MSMAS Judoka were invited to 'train with the best' at another GB National Squad training Session held over the weekend..


MSMAS trains Judo with the best!

On Wednesday, a  number of MSMAS Judo Players were invited to train with the Senior GB Squad in their preparations for the ‘European’s’, being held shortly in Georgia …

Plus at the weekend, Shelley Jackson took part in a 2 day training camp for the U20's GB Squad at the English Institute of Sport.

Training on Saturday began with a ‘warm up’ followed by 'Uchi-Komi’ before a 2 hour Session of Randori (free practice). Sunday began earlier, with some new ways of breaking balance, the real essence of Judo, leading to an ‘Ippon’ (maximum points) throw. After this, the Senior GB Judo Squad arrived for the start of their own ‘Training Camp’ which led to a very busy time 'on the mat' with the two groups practicing Randori together.

Amongst the Instructors who took both Sessions was Kate Howey, the only British Judo Player to have competed at four Olympic Games and the only British woman to have won two Olympic Judo medals, Silver at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney plus Bronze at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, then awarded an M.B.E. for services to Judo in 1997. She announced her retirement from competitive Judo in 2004, having competed in the women's Under 70kg weight category for 16 years.

MSMAS has a reputation for our ‘Free Judo Programme’ allowing Mid Sussex youngsters to practice Judo totally free of charge. However, our Senior Mat also allows our more experienced Judo Players, both Adult & Youth, the chance to play hard and to train with the very best, as shown this week.
