Hi All
I.m in a bar in St Pere Pescador with nothing to do - so I thohgt I would list the people who have made judo a passion for me for the last 50 odd years. Firstly I apologise for the fact that the list is heavily male dominated but that´s the way it has been.

The people on the list are all known to me personally to a greater or lesser degree,so it is not a list of the great and the good - although some of those appear. It is in loosely chronological order. I reserve the right to add those that I have forgotten and apologise in advance for ommisions.

This list has no meaning other than to make public my thanks. It is mainly British players - It should by rights be on the BJA forum - but some nit-wit closed it down. (unless it has been opened agained - I really can´t be bothered to look). They are people who I think have added to my enjoyment of the sport for one reason or another.

Thank you:

Kevin Murphy

I only know Steve Pullen - I used to train with him in Manchester -- great teacher and very humorous. Did you ever meet Aki ?
