The Perfect Focus

Finding focus in a blurry world…

Ladies and gentleman I give you JUDO at the White House…


The President and First Lady watch a judo demonstration on the South Lawn, which was part of an event promoting Chicago’s 2016 Olympic bid.

Ryan Reser is the uke for a local student. Myles Porter (Paralympian!!!) was the other judoka in blue. Myles is the third visually impaired athlete to be ranked nationally among his sighted peers. 🙂

  • Judo Promotional Testing! – Update


    I’m pleased to say ALL my students passed… Though we have a few guys that need some work, every one did very well… Other students who did not have enough “time in grade”, will be up for belts after the State Championships, in about 3 weeks.

    All adult members of the club passed as well! And I survived two sets of Nage no Kata as Uki… If your counting thats a total of 60 falls… (and 3 Advil)…

    Judo Promotional Testing!
