Congratulations to Masters  competitors Rick Hysell,  AllianceAZO Judo,  Silver Medal M3 -90 kg., and Patrick Anderson, MSU Judo Club, Bronze Medal, M5 -100 kg.

Both these competitors enjoyed the competition immensely. Both are active Masters competitors at our local tournaments events – If you are an “older” judoka, next time you see them ask them about competing at Senior national and consider training to participate in next year’s event.

“It is a great experience to compete with very experienced athletes from across the country, and it is highly motivating to think of who you might face at next year’s tournament when you train in Michigan all year long,” said Anderson, winner of the Masters Heavyweight division at the 2012 Michigan Open. “Plus, I have a few tricks to bring back to my friends at the MSU Judo Club.”
