MSMAS Judo ~ MSMAS take 'Gold' at the '2011 British Championships' for 5th year in succession...

On Day #1 at the Ice Sheffield Arena, Martyn Woodhead took Gold to win the BJA National Championships for the 5th year in a row ....... consistency or what !!


Martyn (15), long time student of the Mid Sussex Martial Arts School weighed in early at The English Institute of Sports in Sheffield for the British Judo Association National Championships 2011.

Attended by hundreds of the top junior Judo players from all over the United Kingdom, this blue riband event was held in The Ice Sheffield arena, marking the highlight of the junior domestic Judo calendar.

Martyn was entered for the heavyweight category for boys under 16 years of age.

In his first contest against Kieran Miles (Watts Blake Bearne) Martyn threw him with a left-handed ankle sweep (Ko-uchi-gari) before holding him for 25 seconds in Kesa Gatame earning him a maximum Ippon score.

Jack Hodgson (Cherry) was next to compete against Martyn and it ended quickly with Martyn throwing him with a text book Osoto Gari for another Ippon, enabling Martyn to progress to the Finals.

Following the flag ceremony and the introduction of the fighters to the audience, Martyn competed against Harris Kekic (Ernest Bevin Phoenix) and in convincing style threw him for wazari (Ko-uchi Gari) before holding him in Kesa Gatame until the referee stopped the contest ...

Martyn then became the BJA National Champion for 2011 and retained this title for the 5th consecutive year!

His medal was presented by the legendary Roy Inman.
