Paying the bills

2013 it's going to be a busy one! 

Hi everyone!

So here we are at the end of January and the Judo year is about to start, all guns blazing! And my year starts in earnest too.

This weekend I have a busy one, this morning I took a session for Holbrook Judo Club as guest instructor for their monthly squad session. Tomorrow I shall attend the Hampshire Judo Junior and Senior squad training sessions. After which I shall be taking my regular sunday training session at Southampton Solent University Judo Club (aka Southampton City Judo Club). Monday I'll be taking the Alresford Judo Club, Tuesday (7am) and Thursday (6:30pm) Solent again.

Then on Sunday the 3rd I shall be in competition organiser mode running the fourth in the Hampshire Team Championships series of competitions, the first of 2013.

Come the Tuesday (5th), I fly to Paris to help stream the Paris Grand Slam tournament for the IJF. This is a huge event and one not to be missed, I hope that we will be able to share the stream for all of those unable to attend in person. Thankfully my good friend Danny Murphy is taking the session at Solent whilst I am away! When I get back I have Tina and Dennis Penfold coaching the Solent Judo team in Kata in preparation of the Hampshire Kata COmpetition later in the year.

Later in February I head to Samsun, Turkey for another IJF event. I will also be taking the team from Solent up to Sheffield for the British Universities Judo Championships. In March another Team Championships and then the big event for the first part of the year for me, The 2013 Hampshire Judo Championships (Hampshire Closed). This is the biggest event I have run to date so i am looking forward to it. Entries opened on the 19th and are coming in steadily.

This year is looking very exciting and I am looking forward to it hugely.
I am also, trying to breath new life into the podcast, work on the JudoTicker, and generally keeping busy!

The truth is there is far too much for me to do, so I am actively looking for people to help. I need to find some volunteer coaches for Southampton and Alresford, I need people to help pull the events together to take on some of the little jobs and some of the big ones. So if you want to help me out or mosre likely you would like to help out Judo in Hampshire then drop me a message and let me know!
