Nicola Fairbrother 7th Dan, M.B.E., Judo World Champion & Olympian, lends her support to MSMAS Junior/Youth Judo Programme..

" This is a great idea - and one that I support wholly. I know how much it cost me (well, I should say how much it cost my parents, really) to keep me going in Judo when I was younger. Congratulations to Roger and the team for coming up with and sustaining this idea. Everyone in Sussex - you don't know how lucky you are! Go for it. Go and try Judo for free today!"


MSMAS are pleased to acknowledge the support of Nicola Fairbrother MBE, who started Judo at the age of seven, and can look back on a C.V. in Judo, surpassed only by very few Judoka in the world today.

Her achievements are so numerous, it is impossible to mention them all.

From her first medal, won at a little Mini Mon at St Crispins Sport Centre in Wokingham to her greatest achievements:

* Winning the World Title at Hamilton in Canada

* Olympic Silver at the Barcelona Olympics

* Honoured by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth with the MBE, for her contribution to British Sport.
She also took 4 European Titles, 1 Junior and 3 Senior, British #1 in her weight for over a decade, and 9 times British Champion.
Also presented with the European Judoka of the Year Award, then twice presented with the Dame Edith Russell-Smith Vase for Women's British Judo Personality of the Year and three times 'Runner Up' in the Sunday Times Sports Awards.

Welcome aboard Nik !!
