This year’s first ‘Special’ is now booked,


  • Info. letters will be going out from tomorrow.
  • Please remember this is an invitation event. So without a letter of invitation you can’t attend.
  • I will for the first time though be inviting students to watch, as a lead into taking part.

Gregg is a very experienced international performer, how coming to the end of his intenational career. Gregg helps us out with a previous Special, which was really enjoyed by all those present, so due to this popular demand, I’ve managed to persude him to come back and ‘fight’ you all again! As he fights internationally in the under 66kg weight band, Gregg is a very fast and skillful player, well suited to practise with out students!

He also works at Fighting Films, which is the company making many of the judo kits we use plus producing all the coverage of the IJF (International Judo Federation) Grand Tour competitions. Gregg fought in last weekend’s Marrakech Grand Prix.

As I’ve said before, this is fantastic opportunity for our young judo stars of the future to experience judo not only at one of the best venues in the country but also with some of the best players in the country! Its great fun but funamentally a great learning experience. The spectators only, well to watch judo at high level is almost as benefical as doing it. I spent many years doing this, when my father was coaching at intenational competitions, when I was very young.. it probably helped put me where I am now.

Anyway, look forward to seeing you on the 24th.
