Better Judo in One Word
My students at Gompers Middle School may not have perfect technique but one thing people in Kansas City commented on over and over is that they are not afraid to get out on the mat and try to throw.
Too many people in judo are afraid to even try to throw their opponent. They are afraid they will get countered. They are afraid that they will look stupid. They are afraid that it won't work.
My students at Gompers may not be perfect and they may not have learned everything, but they have learned not to be afraid.
And if you have been one of the donors that helped them, I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart.
