MSMAS FREE Judo for Juniors & Youth continues into 2011...

In 2008 MSMAS introduced ‘FREE Judo’ to ALL Juniors & Youth !


MANY said it would not work....

BUT as we enter 2011, the results appear to tell a very different story..

Even the BJA have noticed now ~ Check out


As a fine example for the boys, Martyn Woodhead began his Judo at MSMAS as a Novice..

However, in the past 36 months he has taken nearly 20 Gold Medals and has become ranked #1 in the UK.

Martyn trains regularly at MSMAS and in 2011 will assist the Novice Junior Judo Mat as part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award…


Likewise, a fine example for the girls, Shelley Jackson, also began her Judo at MSMAS as a complete Novice…

After multiple Medal success in 2010 she is now ranked #2 in the UK, for both girls and ladies sections.
Now a 1st Dan Black Belt herself, plus a holder of the BJA Instructor Award, Shelley acts as Head of Junior & Youth ‘Improvers’ Judo at MSMAS…


ALSO MSMAS Junior & Youth attended the 2010 Sussex County Trials and scored:

Matthew Tweddle            Gold U55 Kgs Boys            'Sussex County Champion'        
Malcolm Thain                   Gold U66 Kgs Boys            'Sussex County Champion'        
Martyn Woodhead           Gold O73 Kgs Boys           'Sussex County Champion'        
Kathryn Howard                Gold U48 Kgs Girls            'Sussex County Champion'        
Finn Bazard Ferns             Bronze U30 Kgs Boys       'Sussex County Member'          
George Hands                    Bronze U30 Kgs Boys       'Sussex County Member'          
Jake Tweddle                      Bronze U55 Kgs Boys       'Sussex County Member'          
Luke Fairhall                       Bronze U60 Kgs Boys       'Sussex County Member'          
Lidia Nawrocka                  Bronze U57 Kgs Girls       'Sussex County Member'          


As for the future, who can tell ???

BUT our last result in December 2010 = 10 MSMAS Junior Judo Players medalled at local Judo Tournament in Tunbridge Wells….

Gold for Jake Christian and Freddie Davies,
Silver for Sophie Feltham,
Bronzes for Edie Christian, Sophie Hinton, Emily Glynn, Thomas Hunter, Zoe Welfare, Louis Kirby and Finn Bazard-Ferns
plus ‘Spirit of Judo’ Awards for Zoe Welfare, Louis Kirby & Finn Bazard-Ferns.

A total haul of 10 medals, plus 3 ‘Spirit of Judo’ Awards !!
