Max was born and has grown up in Plymouth, and started his Judo career at 6 years old.


Over the past 12 years he has developed into one of the top prospects in the UK and is now on the next part of his journey as he continues his quest towards competing at an Olympic Games.


Max is also studying full time at the University of Birmingham, studying business and sport.

Max has trained with a number of different coaches over the years including many of the coaches at Drake. However, his mainstay has been his Dad Gary who has worked hard with Max to get him

to his current position.

He is currently ranked the Number 1 Junior in the UK in the U100kg weight group and is also the current British Champion in this category.
