MSMAS 2009 ~ A brief review...

What a year 2009 turned out to be...

 

Once again MSMAS Members enjoyed another year full of training and great experiences, both at home and abroad, despite the current economic climate...

2009 Overseas MSMAS Dojo visits included:

• ITALY                   MSMAS Youth Judo in Montegiorgio    http://www.msmas.org/news2.php?id=244

In 2009 MSMAS YuDansha were also individually in Indochina, Australia, New Zealand, South America, USA, Canada & Japan.

Responsible Travel @ MSMAS

To offset the MSMAS 'carbon footprint', Kyoshi Payne personally secured an acre of Brazilian Rainforest (Lat: 5.648 / Long: 61.490), thus locking in 260 tonnes of global warming CO2, equivilant to the annual carbon footprint of ten British families ....

2009 at HOME for MSMAS also saw much happen, perhaps most importantly Nicola Fairbrother 7th Dan, M.B.E., Judo World Champion & Olympian

endorsing our now well established and totally 'FREE' MSMAS Junior/Youth Judo Programme by stating:

" 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!" http://www.msmas.org/news2.php?id=262

As MSMAS enter 2010, ‘FREE’ Judo is still available to all young people aged 8 to 18 years of age, a great help to Mid Sussex families at this time …

In December, Junior Judo Players from the MSMAS ‘Free’ Judo Programme took 14 Medals from 14 entries plus 5 ‘Spirit of Judo’ Awards at a Judo Competition.
