MSMAS Judo ~ Takes Gold at the 'Kent International' Junior/Youth Judo Tournament ....

Well done to Martyn who took Gold at the 'Kent International' Judo Tournament at Crystal Palace in London today...


On Saturday, June 25th , Martyn Woodhead (15) an experienced Judo student from the Mid Sussex Martial Arts School travelled to the prestigious Crystal Palace National Sports Centre to compete at
the ‘Kent International Judo Competition’.

With over 300 competitors from as far afield as Holland and Belgium, together with Judo Players from all the Home Countries, talent was in abundance, with many National Champions and England Squad players ready to step up to the mark at this very competitive event.

The heat in the arena was intense, with all Competitors suffering by trying to perform under the far from ideal conditions…..

Despite this Martyn, competing in the Junior Over 81Kgs Category, won his first Medal contest by a maximum win ‘Ippon’ with his trademark Ko-uchi-Gari, with just 20 seconds of time left on the clock.

In the Final, he then met with another Competitor making preparations in advance of the British Championships to be held in Sheffield in October.

Martyn had to come from behind, having been penalized for two technical infringements, to win the Gold, throwing his opponent by Waza-ari.

Well done Martyn, keep it up !!
