I started Judo 40 years ago, when we held our club nights at the old black huts in Grandstand Rd.
My Sensei`s were John Hyde, Lyndon Preece and Alec Lisle. After 2 years with the help of John Hyde I started training the beginners. Which I carried on for many years after. When I reached the grade of 2nd kyu , I took my Regional Referee course which I passed at Oxford. Aproximately15 years ago I retired from the Judo Mat due to ill health. I have carried on with Hereford Judo Club as a committee member, and hope to do so for quite sometime .
