We were saddened today to hear of the passing of Roy Inman OBE, 9th dan.
Roy could justifiably claim to be the world’s most successful coach, developing many World, Olympic and European medallists, including Hampshire’s own Kate Howey MBE (World Champion 1997, Olympic medallist 1992, 2000).
In their early days as coaches, Tony Brown and Jill Brown attended many coaching seminars led by Roy, and always came away highly motivated. He also visited Havant Judokwai, and coached Brett Caswell at Bath University.
He will be much missed.
