PSUK Judo Weekends
PSUK Judo committee have had to consider the number of events that we offer in
particular our two National Technical weekends, this has come about from the
dwindling numbers of PSUK members attending, we fully appreciate that time off
and funding are the main challenges, and am sure that if we could return to the
good old days we would have attendance numbering in the 80s, but we know that
is not going to happen. So we are looking at slimming by the considering taking
away one of the weekends and rescheduling the events we host to spread the cost
and leave/time off problem.
we are considering is moving our prime weekend hosted jointly with the WJA to a
date in the spring leaving the National Championships in late summer/Autumn.
The last Cardiff weekend in Nov had a small amount of PSUK attendees and the
previous spring weekend was no better. By making the suggested changes this
gives you a quality event at each end of the year spreading the cost and
hopefully the burden of your own annual leave/time off. We will
make a final decision soon , but to aid that could you please let me have your
thoughts either to my email firstname.lastname@example.org
or on our PSUK FB where I have copied this announcement. The events are
for you if cost and time is not the issue in the lack of support then
please tell us, we can make changes to give you want you want. Last year we
wrote to all PSUK members on our circulation list asking what else you would
like to have on your weekends, we received 8 replies out of approximately 200
requests sent out, it would be great to have more this time.
forward to hearing from you

The Metropolitan Police Service were our hosts this year held in the
East End Docks area Stewart and Nancy Hyde with the Met judo section
organised a superb event from the hotel accommodation over looking the
river, to the excellent sporting facilities of the local university, with an
unforgettable presentation dinner at a local Italian restaurant.
This year saw some new faces which was encouraging and thankfully a lot
of the old ones ensuring all the categories were well represented.
96 competitors in total with 21 forces represented.-
Graeme and Anne Bayley led a great team of officials with our own Andy
Grand carrying out the Championship Control role ensuring everyone had
the maximum amount of competition.
Some fantastic judo and too much to record here, but memorable was
Darren Dean winning is 20th national title and his 29th medal , achievements
that got him the player of the day award.
Gary Cole our European champion continued to blaze a trail through medals
winning the under 66 kilo and a silver in the where he unfortunately had to
curtail his contest due to injury which did not allow him to continue to compete.
Great to see was former British Police Champion andPolice internationaljudo
player John Ellis refereeing for the first time and successfully passing his
National C Award, hopefully a trend others will considerfollowing.
