Help for heroes 10K run

A big well done goes out to Sensei Gary Marcham, who today ran in the london 10K run in aid of Help for Heroes.

Last year Gary suffered a hear attack, and part of his rehabilitation was to start jogging to improve his fitness and loose weight. As he started he set a goal to run in the London 10K, in aid of Help for Heroes. Gary has made tremendous progress, and I understand that his training crew (the current Mrs M, and his children), have inspired and encouraged him all the way.

Its not too late to make a contribution, just click on the link and don’t forget to gift aid.

Gary’s not stopping there, as he has already entered himself for the Reading half marathon next year.

Good one Gary, keep up all the hard work.

Central England Judo Course and League


What a great day yesterday, at the Central England Judo course and league hosted by Sensei Gary Marcham.

During the morning course, the younger students were taught both Judo and Karate by Sensei Mandie, 3rd Dan Judo and 2nd Dan Karate. The older students were taught by Sempai Paul 1st Dan,  Sensei Gary 3rd Dan Doshi, and Sensei Andy, 4th Dan.

During the afternoon there was a Judo league, and the standard of Shia was extremely high, it was great to be able to attend an event and sit back enjoying watching what was going on, on the mat.

At the end of the league, little Zac was awarded his Juvenile balck, by Sensei Gary, well done Zac.
