The event was also saw the rasing of Sensei John (Jack) Hearn to 9th Dan, Sensei John Pegram to 6th Dan and Honary Dan Grades to Peter and Christine Barnett of Stanway Judo for their hard work and commitment to Judo over many years.

Juneille Smith 6th Dan said of  Sensei Hearn;

“”Sensei Kenshiro Abbe was one of the founder members of Judo in England, and Sensei Bill Wood was his right hand man, Sensei Bill and Jack go back a long way. In the 1950’s Sensei Abbe was ignored by the newly rising BJA but he went on to help form the BJC.

Sensei Abbe gave Jack his 1st Kyu on 2nd Febuary 1958 and his 1st Dan on the 22nd July 1960, whereby he had to compete against John Gallon, who was awarded his 1st Dan on the same day.

On the 17th Febuary 1963 Sensei Abbe graded Jack to 2nd Dan.

On 30th Jan 1965 Sensei Abbe along with Sensei Masutaro O’Tani, Sensei Tizio Wantanabe , John Gallon and Syd Cambell awarded Jack his 3rd Dan, I believe this was awarded whilst Sensei Abbe was in Japan, (a telephone call) to Jack, Jack was presented with a Samurai Sword at the time which is worth a lot of money, a gift from Sensei Abbe.

Jack was awarded his 8th Dan on 28th April 2000, his International Referee Award in August 1968 (BJC – MAC), and his International Coaching Award in 1970, from BJC-MAC Technical Board, & Peter Schoneville – Holland.

Sensei Jack is now 87 years of age, and still as agile as ever, often assisting at Judo/Martial Art courses, or Summer Camps.

Myself, I have aways been Jack’s uke; started Judo with one of Jack’s students Bob Glass 4th Dan BJC and went to Jack`s club when the local politics in the BJC became unbearable. I was awarded my 6th Dan in 2008 by Jack and Sensei Jack Hogan, (then 9th Dan USA), at Bolton arena which was a total surprise to me.

Have been Sensei Bill Wood`s uke in the past, and graded 4th Dan by Sensei Kondo, 10th Dan Switzerland.””

The All England Judo Federation would like to pass on their thanks to all those volunteers that helped make the event a success and helping us learn by any mistakes that may have taken occured but hopefully resolved to everyones satisfaction.
