After a long break, I got back into Martial Arts training and I continue to study the Martial Art of Judo under the tutelage of Coach Gerald Lafon, 7th Dan, in his Academy in San Diego and was recently awarded the Judo Black Belt.
I also love my Martial Arts studies in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with Professor Michio Grubbs. The Cross-Training in the complimentary styles of Judo and BJJ has helped me tremendously and has given me a great perspective in the Grappling Arts.
I am honored to be able to bring my knowledge of the “Gentle Way” to this amazing Martial Arts Academy.
Our students learn Judo throws adapted to the Art of Jiu Jitsu in order to develop their take down techniques and compliment their Jiu Jitsu skills.
Learning how to fall safely is very important and our students in both the Kids and the Adults classes, practice Break Falls, Side Falls and Forward Rolls in every Takedown / Judo Class.
“Judo offers life changing lessons that will help students grow at a rapid pace.”
