What more can you ask from a masterclass?……we will wait!
IJF Hall of Famers Neil Adams MBE 9th Dan and Dr Karen Briggs MBE 8th Dan will join forces with Happidojo for a one-off bumper masterclass of judo for lucky judoka across the country.
Taking place in Cambridgeshire, Briggs and Adams will hold two individual sessions aimed at a range of ages.
Briggs, who won four World Championships in the 1980s, was crowned world champion for the first time in 1982 at the age of 18. The all-action fighter moulded herself into an all-time great as she successfully defended her world title in 1984, 1986 and 1989.
Adams, who was the first British male to win a world title, is the most decorated and celebrated British judoka of all time.
Adams won back-to-back Olympic silver medals at the 1980 and 1984 Games in Moscow and Los Angeles respectively. In 1981 he became the first Briton to simultaneously hold a European and world title, picking up a remarkable eight senior European Championships medals – including five Gold!
