Note: Someone asked me about this early in the morning (okay, for me, that is about 10 a.m.) and I hadn't read it. I told the person that knowing the parties involved I was sure that Jim was in the right. Having read his letter, I still say the same. I had the letter posted here earlier today and then received the statement at the bottom ... So - that was interesting.
---- REDACTED MATERIAL ----
To All USA Judo Members & Affiliates
USA Judo has read the letter that I posted today, I have removed my letter after speaking with the USA Judo President Lance Nading I was "promised" & "assured" that all the problems we have and have had with our athletes will be taken care of and we will FINALLY have our program in place for the next three years so we can accomplish our goals at the 2016 Olympic Games. I would like to personally thank everybody who read and supported my letter. Hopefully, USA Judo will be on the upswing again.
