Make sure you preregister HERE

Few American judoka can claim careers comparable to that of Hector Estevez.  His incredible record of competition, from its beginnings in Cuba all the way to earning his place as an Olympian, has been followed by an equally impressive rise through the top ranks of international refereeing to be selected as an Olympic referee.

Join us on June 12th at 1PM (Pacific) for an in-depth conversation with Sensei Estevez as the guest in the ongoing USJF Seminar Series of webinars. You won’t want to miss this inspirational story of one of the most dedicated and successful judokas in the history of US judo.

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.
