Bob Willingham Welcome to The World of Judo Online!
EDITOR'S MESSAGE


WOW! It's issue 40, the Autumn edition of TWOJ for 2004, which means of course that the magazine has now been going TEN YEARS! Can you believe it? In one sense it seems like no time since Issue 1 came out and yet it is almost as though I can't remember a time when I wasn't producing it. Looking through the back issues it is interesting to see how the style of the mag has evolved but what is amazing is that every time I struggle for space to fit everything in.

My Impressions on the All Japan Judo Championships
By: Angelo Parisi

When I was about nine my dad, who was my first coach, said, ‘One day you’re going to be World Champion.’ I didn’t think any more about it until I was 15 when I won the Junior World Championships and I thought ‘Well, if I’ve done it as a junior maybe I can win the seniors’."And that’s how an ambition was born in the mind of Kate Howey who went on to become one of the most formidable fighters in the history of British women’s judo with two Olympic Medals and a World Championship title. This month she retired from contest judo to pursue a career as a BJA national coach.

Interview with Kate Howey
A World of Judo Magazine Exclusive
By: Mark Law

French athlete, Virginie Marie and won with three small scores to no reply. At -78kg, although she didn’t win a medal, the performance of Sian Wilson was hugely impressive and she came within a whisker of making the final. In the most entertaining and attacking contest of the whole weekend, Wilson took Waza-ari, Yuko and Koka scores off her semi-final opponent, Germany’s Esther Ridder. But despite appearing to canter off into the distance, Wilson was thrown for Waza-ari herself and with just 30 seconds remaining she was bowled over for Ippon. Maybe a little inexperience cost her dear but you have to admire the attacking spirit. Ridder narrowly beat Belgium’s Joke Buysschaert in the final while Wilson was beaten by another German, Antje Merk to finish fifth over all.
