Kayla Harrison Returns to Sport Judo Next Weekend

March 5, 2017


Kayla’s back!  She’ll be at Maurice Allan’s Sport Judo in Springfield Virginia next Saturday, March 11th, for another clinic.


Those of us who were at her clinic in December were treated to an impressive show of instructional ability, special twists to standard techniques that actually work (and she actually uses), and her discussion about judo and her future in supporting the sport.


So come on back to Springfield and learn from the most successful international judoka the USA has ever had!

Hilaire Notewo Seeking Donations for Judo Programs in the Ivory Coast, Needs Gis and Equipment

Longtime Shufu Judo member Hilaire Notewo is planning to relocate to Côte D’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Africa in late November/December. He will be supporting judo programs, but equipment (esp. judo uniforms) are difficult to come by.  Hilaire is looking for gently used judo gis and other equipment.  Hilaire will also be visiting and donating goods to orphanages.  Should you have gently used shoes, clothes for teenagers, youths, and toddlers, kindly make them available to Hilaire.

If you would like to donate to this effort, you can send your donation to the following address:
