James Burrell Memorial Team Championship
March 4th
James Burrell was a judoka who pusued excellece, in both attitude and behavior. He exemplified the judo priciples 'Maximum Efficiency-Minimum Effort' and 'mutual welfare and benefit'. He gave every activity he pursued 100% of his attention and effort, and as a result, did everything well. There is no question that Jum would have attained national prominence as a competitor had he not first become injured, and then ill, meeting an untimely death. Jum held the rank of Sandan, posthumously awarded. As a judo student Jum worked and studied hard. After a serious injury as a shodan Jim switched his fighting style, while competing, from right handed to left. An attentive and intent student, Jum diligently pusued learning the many areas of judo. In addition to shiai competition, Jim competed in kata and placed in the Nationals while ill. He was a well rounded judoka, a good teacher and a good referee. So, to remember and honor James Burrell, we place his name and the axion 'Maximum Efficiency-Minimum Effort' which he so well exemplified, on the Team Award plaques.
