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

Well a little late in the day may I wish you all a very happy New Year and welcome you to the winter issue of TWOJ. This issue has a particularly British flavour, covering some of the most important events in our calendar for players of all age groups. Junior nationals, National Youth Trials and National Grand Finals. Britain also hosted the finals of the Men's European Team Championships and did it in style. A pre event visit from HRH Prince Michael of Kent and the fantastic Inner temple location of the post competition dinner provided a uniquely British feel and the celebratory atmosphere amongst all those present was a tribute to the friendships that judo can inspire between nationalities. I felt proud to be a part of it.
On a personal note you might like to know that my judo pictures are well thought of even outside our sport! In a recent photographic competition held by the British Institute of Professional Photographers my shot of James Warren throwing Arencibia (CUB) featured in issue 34, took second place in the photo journalism section. Tony Freeman BIPP President awarding me, my photojournalism prize.

Now... if your best friend is reading this over your shoulder please tell them to get a copy of their own! They don't have to wait and subscribe with their licence, they can easily do it via the TWOJ website www.twoj.org The magazine lives or dies on the strength of the numbers who subscribe and it would be good to bump them up a bit. If you are a club coach I'd really appreciate it if you could do a "sell" on the mag amongst your club members - please contact me if you need any help. Well I'll leave you now to read on - and as ever - ENJOY!
