Hey Everyone,  Robert here. I've been so busy with school, work, and training that  forgot to mention this. I will be attending the 2015 USJA Winter Nationals as a Senior. While Here I hope to complete a clinic to gain certification as a USJA coach, and ultimately recognized by all the high Judo bodies. 

This has been one hell of a season. I've been working full-time, training Judo full-time, and going to School at University of Arizona Full time. Back in October I was invited to go to USJA Winter Nationals, at first I was very apprehensive. But after talking to my friends, students, and family I've decided to go. I made this decision because I realistically will only have a few opportunities to  compete at the national level in my life. That said, I am a full-time student and truly fortunate to have the academic acumen to be rewarded with scholarship, but that doesn't leave room for much else. So I open my heart and humble myself before you; my friends, family, students and acquaintances. Help me represent the hard working and tenacious people of Phoenix Arizona in the worlds 2nd largest sport at with United States Judo Association's Winter Nationals Tournament. While I do not have any specific goals in mind (Anything given is certainly appreciated) the current projected cost is approximately $350.00 USD ). If you would like to support me please feel free to use the link below.

The funds accrued will facilitate my continued study and instruction of Judo by attending Nationals. I am currently working on establishing a nonprofit focused on disseminating self defense and martial arts to at risk demographics, people who truly would benefit from martial arts. Specifically Judo. Please Share this and I hope you will help me on my journey. Feel free to visit us at
