All the above are just my major tournaments that I have entered. There is many more that I have not listed. My medal tally is in excess of over 450 medals and trophies. I have represented my country at Judo, Sombo and Combat Sombo. I have also travelled all around England teaching and have also taught in Finland, Germany, Holland and many more.
I started Judo when I was 4 year’s old and have been doing Martial arts for over 25 years, so I feel t have a lot to offer anyone who is willing to learn.

For anymore information just ask me, I don’t bite.
