Matt Williamson 2nd Dan
CRB Checked Judo Coach

I started Judo at Whites Wood Lane Judo Club when I was five years old and I won my first contest the following year. I have been doing Judo for over 20 years and during this time I have trained at many different clubs. I gained my senior black with the BJA when I was 16 years old and I went on to get my 2nd Dan black belt when I was 19.

I have fought in competitions in Bushido Zazen International, AJA, BJC and BJA throughout my judo career. I have been Treasurer and Chairman of Loughborough University Judo Club and a member of the Loughborough first team who won the National Universities Team Championship in 2004. I have been a member of the Lincolnshire Squad, the Yorkshire and Humberside Squad and the Great Britain Junior Men's Squad. During my time at Loughborough I was awarded full sporting colours and club colours for Judo.

I am currently working towards my 3rd Dan which I hope to achieve over the next 18 months. My aim is to expand judo in the Gainsborough and Lincolnshire area, teaching people of all ages and abilities; giving them self-confidence, respect and fitness.
