Sekai no Judo Zasshi -- The World of Judo Magazine
Welcome to The World of Judo Online!

Well here's the issue that I tried to get to you just before Christmas! I've been going flat out but so much of the time it seems to have been two steps forward - one step back. However we've finally made it and I hope you enjoy the end result. There was so much material I was hoping to include this time, but with limited pages available to me I've ended up having to take out three reports and save them for future issues!
You will notice that another photographer is credited for the pictures that accompany the Junior Nationals report - my son Jack. It's the first time for many years that I've not been able to attend this event but unfortunately this time it clashed with the Pan American Games which, as the IJF photographer, I am contractually obliged to attend. When Jack volunteered to take pictures for me I decided to take him up on his offer and I think he did a pretty good job for a beginner, (That's ma' boy!)

I'd like to take a moment to thank some of the people who help me with regular information in the magazine in particular Malcolm Limmrick who is always so efficient sending me through lists of results after major British events and Peter Holme who sends me the Ranking lists. Jim Somerville sends me the lists of new Dan Grades. Julie at head office also does a great job dealing with all the magazine subscriptions - no mean feat . And there are many others who contribute regularly so my thanks go to you all. Keep up the good work!

Well I'll leave you to get on with the serious business of enjoying all the photos and seeing how many spelling mistakes my trusty proof reader has missed. I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas and please keep me up to date with any interesting judo news during 2003.
