Some parental comments received after the day:

"After today XXXX is bouncing off the walls here at home, don't expect he will have calmed down by Wednesday."

"XXXX is very happy and grateful to you for all your teaching and has gone to bed on cloud nine. Please say big thanks to Cat for all her support today."

"Thank you to you and all your collegues who teach the children. It was a good competition and a very good day."
"We all owe Catherine and Andrius a big thank you for the day especially Catherine who looked after the kids so well. All the children performed well. The medal haul and the 5 spirit of Judo awards are a credit to MSMAS and all you who teach the children. MSMAS as a team were outstanding and could not have represented MSMAS any better, they should all be very proud of themselves. You can see the confidence and enjoyment Judo is giving these kids at these competitions, it's certainly been a great help to XXXX and the best activity she has been involved in as far as I am concerned. The fact that you all do this for no financial gain is exceptional and the success in these competitions is no more than you deserve. XXXX really enjoyed it and we are all looking forward to next one.  "
"XXXX thoroughly enjoyed it and we were very proud - particularly so when he congratulated the Gold medallist as he went to collect his Silver medal. Very sporting I thought and a good reflection on your Dojo."

"Just a quick note on the event yesterday. First mention has to go to thank Andrias and especially Catherine. While we were there, all our lot put in brave performances and you could see them trying hard to do it right … for me our etiquette stood out too, all our lot seemed to get that right … it was also heartening to see some of them who are perhaps not the most naturally combative kids trying and succeeding with what looked to my untrained eye like some reasonably technical judo (for this level anyway). I didn’t need reminding, but it does hit home what is a bit special about MSMAS when some of the other people there seem to think they are attending a dog fight ... Anyway thanks to you and everyone else at the Dojo – XXXX is really getting a lot out of it..."

& from me ~ Once again, well done to all …………..
