Sunday 15th November 2019 – Dan Powell Masterclass

The East Midland Area of the AJA were very proud to host the 1st Master Class with Dan Powell held at the Cedars Judo Club venue in Earl Shilton.

The day was a great success with a wide variety of grades and ages attending.

Dan was one of the British Judo stars competing in the 2012 London Paralympics and now is busy training with the aim to bring the UK medal success in the 2020 Tokyo Summer Paralympics

Keith Hudson – Rest in Peace

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Keith Hudson after a long battle with illness passed away early last week.

Keith had been a member of the AJA for more than 60 years and was a very active member of Area Committee in various rolls for a good number of those.  In more recent years he served as our Area President until he retired due to ill heath a only a few years ago.

He was a larger than life character always a joke and a good judo story to tell.  I’m sure will be remembered by many of us with great affection.

His wife Doreen asked me to let you all know that his funeral will take place at 2.00pm on Wednesday 10th July at Loughborough Crematorium and that you are all welcome to attend.  Could you also please pass the details on to others who have known Keith that you feel may want to attend.
