What an excellent day today at the National Team event in Walsall. The atmosphere was electric, the fighting fantastic and an excellent result and effort from all of the BJA – Northern Home Counties Judo teams.
Special mention to our MJC players, Jay, Stan and Dot who competed in their particular teams. Not only did they do their individual thing of doing their best, they supported their own team, their own club members and all of the other NHC teams too.
Stan who took part in the Cadet and Junior Boys team took away a Bronze following a defeat with London, and Charlotte (who fought alongside our Rushjudo friends, Zhaklin and Jess) steam rolled to the finish line with a Gold!

kent international: 30th june 2024


Today we had a Gold and Silver for Stan, a Gold for Zeb, Gold and Silver for Jay, Bronze and Silver for K-c and experience and mat time earned for Rico, Bobby and Ash. A fantastic 40 points for Zeb towards his Dan grade, leaving him with just 30 to go!

News just in too that our very own Stanley has also achieved his Dan grade today!!!
Highlight of the weekend has to be K-c gaining her last 30 points needed for her Dan Grade. Someone who has worked exceptionally hard to achieve this, it is truly well deserved!


kent international: 29th june 2024

Well done to our fabulous 5 today at the Kent International.
Starting us off was Isabella, with determination and perseverance came away with a lovely Silver. 🥈
Next up was Marley. Unfortunately no medal today but definitely a warrier in all fights.
Typically, Stan and Chayse who were in the same weight category stepped on the mat at the same time as Zeb on another, so there was a lot of running between 2 mats.
Chayse was unlucky in his Bronze fight narrowly missing out on a medal. Ended with a 5th place.
Stan had entertainment during his first fight when the fire alarms at the venue went off and we were all evacuated. Stan then returned in true Stan style winning that fight and others taking away a Gold medal 🥇
Zeb had his work cut out too in a difficult group, but took away a Bronze! 🥉
Onwards and upwards for our super 7 tomorrow who compete in the Junior and Seniors categories.
Thank our to our Coaches Paul F and P and K-c!

Chayse, Stan and Bobby were in the Pre Cadet and Cadet boys team earning themselves a beautiful gold! 🥇
Brooke, Aniah and Isabella came together to form the u12 red and yellow belt girls. Due to low numbers, they also had a go with the Minor and Pre cadet girls. Excellent determination and support for one another, they came away with Gold in their own category! 🥇

Marley also competed with our Judo friends Rush Judo taking away a lovely gold 🥇
Congratulations also to the Rush pre cadet and cadet girls earning themselves Bronze 🥉
