"Growing Judo for Coaches"
In the past three months, we have had three series of clinics to become certified national coaches. The class was run by Mark Lonsdale, a USJF, USJA & USA JUDO certified National Judo Coach and former international competitor. These 3 classes were the most organized and informative classes that I have ever attended. Mark brought a whole new outlook to coaching and the approach to teaching a technique that we all have learned over the years. At these clinics, we were also honored to have Hayward Nishioka and Hal Sharp to add information and a thought process that all coaches need to understand. Some of the Coaches in our class were from Europe which brought a lot of the new style of Judo for us to think about. We had French, Russian, Poland, and Armenian representation. I see USA Judo moving forward to be more competitive in the World of Judo. If anyone has the chance to take Mark's Class, I would recommend his clinics to anyone!
Thank You Mark!
