  To Open the 2012 National Championships the organising committee ran for the first time a SUPER FUN JUDO SESSION with curent and past Olympians that have represented Australia since 1964 - 2012. The day was loved by all that attended and you couldn't wipe the smiles of all the young Judokas, as they meet and took on their idols in some friendly Randori.


The session was run by the current 2012 London Olympic Coach, Stewart Brain. Depsite they large group of Olympians present on the mat, the biggest attention recieved from young Judoka's was 5 time Olympian and Sydney 2000 Bronze medalist, Maria Pekli. Along with all other Olympians, Maria was happy to pose for photos and sign autographs.
