Unidos Judo Club



We have put together what we believe is the most balanced and capable slate of candidates for the USJA Board of Directors ever. This slate includes: Rob Reilly, Pete Mantel, Ron Cooley (myself), Marshall Coffman, Jessie Goldstein, and Bonnie Korte.

Jim Bregman, Sensei’s endorsement of the slate, a brief biography of each of us, and instructions for how to cast your nomination votes is in the attachment below.

We, as a group of longtime USJA supporters with over 2 centuries of mat-time between us, are committed to rebuilding the USJA better than it ever was before, with better service for all members, better insurance, and better accountability so no one can ever again abuse their positions of trust within this organization.

If you haven't done so already, I ask that each of you with the power to nominate and vote in this election (senior members of the USJA in good standing), to call in your nomination for every member of this slate. If you cannot vote in this election, I ask that you to do what you can to get others who can vote, to nominate and vote for each member of this slate. If we all come together for this, we can save the USJA and make it better than it ever was as we grow Judo across the United States.

Thank you!
Ron Cooley
Come see us this Saturday, August 4, around 11:30 at the South Clairemont Rec Center Family Day! We'll be putting on a demonstration of kid-friendly judo techniques, including mat safety, falls, and throws. Street parking can get scarce, so come early and see what else is up at South Clairemont Rec (just be sure to stay for the judo 😁).

“Fight for the Cure” Breast & Ovarian Cancer Fundraiser

I wanted to get this out earlier - but we had some technical issues 😞
Each year, the Riverside Youth Judo Club hosts an All Women’s Charity Judo Tournament to raise money for those affected by breast and ovarian cancer. The event has been very positive and successful. Unfortunately, this year’s tournament was cancelled because of the pandemic.

In years past, we would ask people to “dedicate” our medals to someone who has survived or lost their battle with breast or ovarian cancer. 100% of the funds raised were donated to The Pink Ribbon Place.

This year, we cannot dedicate medals. But we are offering these pink dedication certificates to anyone who would like to help.

We’re asking for $10 for the dedication. We will mail a certificate to you that includes your loved one’s name. Please email me at [email protected] if you would like to help.

Our donation site for the dedication is at:

[01/15/20]   As part of promotion to brown belt, we require students to write a 1 page paper about Judo. We have received many very good papers. Recently one of our Students wrote the following paper. We have seen tremendous growth from this Judoka since they started coming to our club.

My Judo
Judo is a very important part of my life, it's been there during the good times, and helped me get through the bad times. Sometimes I'll be tired, worn out, and just done with the day or the week, but no matter how terrible I feel I know that after I get to the dojo, I'll feel better than ever. Judo always leaves me with a smile on my face and a great sense of satisfaction once I leave, and all the people here are like a second family to me. I've been at Unidos Judo for almost seven
years now-- and I believe that staying in Judo is one of the best, and most important choices in my life. I've seen quite a few people come and leave judo, even my best friend who got me into it. I'm glad to be apart of this dojo, and I'm honestly so happy to see the growth of other members overtime alongside side my own. I remember being kicked out of multiple martial arts when I was younger, because none of them wanted to deal with my undisciplined, distracting actions
and personality-- but Unidos Judo didn't. Sensei Mark, Sensei Jennifer, and everyone else didn't. It means so much to me for what everyone here has done for me, this dojo accepted me for who I am, and helped me improve myself and grow in ways I don't think I ever could ha􀀷e if I hadn't come here. "You aren't allowed to say 'I can't"' was something that has stuck with me strongly. To persevere, to never stop trying and struggling. My attitude when I first started was always
giving up, "I can't do this, l can't do that,". And, if it weren't for Judo, for my Sensei's believing in me and helping me, and for everyone else laughing and having a great time whole we
practiced together, I wouldn't have changed nor improved that attitude.
Now lam in a position to help others in the dojo, help them improve and help them have a better day. I don't want to baby them-- although some of them might wish for it-- because I want to see them grow, and become stronger. Strong enough to face their darknesses, their bullies,
their issues, just as everyone here has done for me. I want to help become the strength for my
juniors the way my seniors and Sensei's have for me. I don't compete really, because I'm not here to be a 'winner', although competitions are fun, I don't really care that much about competing
against others that much. There are enough people to show off how great of a sport it is, but I
personally like volunteering, cheering on my friends and getting excited when they come to the mat I'm working. Watching the runners bolt with brackets, chilling out with Sensei's and other
volunteers while we eat and chat together in the break room. I don't need to compete, because I know I get better everyday I come to Judo. I know I'm not the best, but I also know I'm
constantly improving. And that's enough for me. To be able to help others get better, to know
that I'm getting better, to learn new tricks and throws and hold downs and chokes, and now the new chapter of bars now.
Judo has changed my life for the better. It's influenced how l act, how I feel, my
self-esteem, my hopes, my way of thinking, and much more. l can never thank you all enough for what you have done for me, and I love you all and this dojo more than l ever thought l would.

Why judo, for kids?

- Judo is the safest contact sport for children under 13 years of age. (Source: American college of sports medicine).

- Judo is the best training sport for children from 5 to 12 years of age. (Source: World Health organization).

- Judo is the second most complete sport that exists. (Source: International Olympic Committee, 2000).

- Judo is the best initial sport to train children and young people from 4 to 21 years of age. (Source: UNESCO 2017).

- Judo is, after rowing, physical exercise with the highest calorie consumption: 363 calories for 1/2 hour. (Source: World Health organization).

In addition to the psychological benefits we have seen in the dojos an: increase in self-confidence, resorption of behavior disorder at home and school, development of motor and cognitive skills, lessening of too much energy.

Not to mention the concepts of self-defence which they acquire and which they can use when needed throughout their lives.

Don't hesitate to share, maybe it will help a child of your entourage!
