I have been doing Judo in the UK since 1974. I am currently based in Bristol, England but regularly attend tournaments and seminars around the country. If I can`t help you, I probably know a man who can!
I have a 2nd Dan with both the BJC (British Judo Council) and the BJA (British Judo Association). I am also qualified as a Personal Safety Advisor with the BJA.
In addition, I have students who have won medals at BJA Junior National level.
