Yet another busy weekend for The Mid Sussex Martial Arts Judo players as three of them contested at the ‘2009 British Masters’ held in Sheffield this weekend.

Next, Gus O’Grady, a first time Contestant at this level in the -81kgs Category for Cadet Boys took a respectable 5th place just outside the Medals with a very creditable performance in a large pool of experienced contest players.

Finally, Shelley Jackson, competing in the +78kgs Category for Junior Women took another respectable 7th place, against contest Players from across the UK.

Commenting: Roger Payne, MSMAS Founder & Judo Teacher said:

“Once again MSMAS Judo showed its strength across a range of Categories at ‘The Nationals’, from Pre Cadet Boys, Cadet Boys and even Junior Women after MSMAS Players made it through the Southern Area Trials to qualify to be at The Nationals. Even today, with our focus on our ‘Free Judo for Juniors & Youth’ Programme underway, MSMAS Competition Development continues unabated.”
