An important announcement from Adam Moyerman, Co-Director of the Liberty Bell:



In light of COVID19, the 2020 Liberty Bell Judo Classic will be POSTPONED.


Kristin (El Idrissi, tournament co-director) and I are working to determine a later date to hold the tournament and will provide updates as they become available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause anyone, but everyone’s health and safety is our primary concern.


Please stay in the know by consulting the CDCs advice and in the tenet of mutual welfare, be sure to practice social distancing.


To those that have already registered Kristin and I will be reaching out over the next week to discuss credits or refunds.


Kristin, our former tournament directors, and I appreciate your understanding and all the support we have received from the judo community over the years. Feel free to reach out with any questions and be sure to Stay Safe!
