I started studying judo at the age of 11 in New York Long Island. I studied under Sensei Charles Schweizer from 2001 until still this day. My rank is a 4th degree black belt Yodan in Judo.
Judo is an important aspect of martial arts, teaching ways of unbalancing, and using your opponents weight force against them. I teach traditional Judo, learning terminology in Japanese and English to what each move means and where judo originated from. I took up the Russian National sport of Sambo in 2020, it is very similar to judo. I captured a Gold Medal at the 2021 USA Sambo Nationals held in Greensboro, NC. Using just judo, I have been very successful in the sport of Sambo, I am looking to make the Olympic team in 2028. My Current Brazilian Jiujitsu rank is Brown Belt under Mark Staniszewski/Joe Moreira. Teaching is in my blood, to expand what I have learned to kids, and people of all ages. Learn to protect yourself without throwing a punch.
