Thank You Masazumi Endoh

It was a pleasure to have worked with Masazumi Endoh at the 2003 Junior Nationals
in Boca Rotan, Florida on July 25 through 27. The USJF really appreciates his
sponsorship and donation of the fine Mitsuboshi gis to the qualified winners
of each division. We also very much appreciate your generous donation you have
made to the USJF from the proceeds of the sales made at the event. Thank You

Don Flagg

The USJF Tamo Kitaura Referee Development Committee is very proud in selecting
Don Flagg as the first recipient of this grant. Tamo Kitaura Sensei has
devoted over 50 years to the sport of Judo as a competitor, instructor,
coach, manager and referee. Throughout his distinguished career, Kitaura
Sensei has been instrumental in developing and mentoring students and has
been an active contributor to numerous organizations which support such
activities, including the Central Coast Judo Association and the United
States Judo Federation.

In honor of Kitaura Sensei's lifelong dedication to and distinguished service
in support of Judo throughout the United States, the Central Coast Judo Association
and the United States Judo Federation has established the USJF Tamo Kitaura
Referee Grant. The Grant has been established to provide financial assistance
in support of the development and growth of USJF referees. The Grant is specifically
aimed at USJF referees who have exhibited a degree of technical proficiency,
and have been identified as candidates for further testing and certification
through the PJU-C.

The proceeds from the Grant go towards defraying the costs of travel and other
expenses associated with a referee's attendance at the PJU-C testing site. This
grant has also been established as a tool to encourage, support and increase
new referee participation. Congratulations on the excellent job at the PJU-C
test sight at the Benito Juarez Tournament in Mexico City in May of 2003. We
understand you had the best score among the ten candidates testing. We wish
you continued success in your refereeing career.

Senior Development Training

March 8, 2003

Jerry Wee

Konan sponsored a Senior Development training session on March 8, 2003 from
12:30pm - 3:00pm. A special guest instructor, Ryota Yokoguchi, a respected Japanese
collegiate player conducted the clinic. A fine clinic was provided for all twenty-four
participants.

Sensei Yokoguchi, with the assistance of well-qualified support staff, covered
several turnover techniques as well as several chokes, and arm bars. He provided
an extensive "Japanese" collegiate warm up which was aerobically and aerobically
challenging.

During his intense teaching he covered several ashi-waza drills, as well as
demonstrating a dynamic uchimata. He helped the seniors understand the importance
of kuzure and kuzushi in order to effect a positive kake.

During the teaching he constantly stressed the importance of maintaining a
good upright posture while attacking to ensure the best quality through. His
judo is very sound and provided the participating judoka an excellent model
emphasizing the basics.

Report from the 2003 USJF National Kata Conference

Eiko Shepherd (Kata Chairperson, eikojudo@apci.net)

July 10, 2003

The Kata Development and Certification Committee is honored to report that
2003 USJF Judo Conference was held at San Francisco State University on June
11,12,and 13th, 2003. This year's kata conference instructors were Mr. Toshihiro
Utsugi, 8th Dan, and Mr. Yoshiharu Enoki, 7th Dan, from the Kodokan. Also Kata
Development invited a guest from Santo Domingo. Mr. Moximo Suriel is the Dominican
Judo Federation Kata Chairman.

Currently, in his country Mr. Suriel is very active promoting kata . He hopes
that in the near future the kata program will get bigger and include more international
kata competition. Presently in his country there is one other kata instructor
other than himself. He was very happy and appreciative that we invited him to
the USJF Judo Conference. He said "he arrived at the conference with very
little kata knowledge and was going home with a lot of knowledge".

This year's conference was a little different than last year. The participants
were able to choose from three categories: Teachers Institute, Referee and Kata
. On the first day 13 people practiced Nage no Kata and Goshinjitsu. On the
second day 10 people were on the mat to study Katame no Kata and Kime no Kata.
Twelve judoka attended Ju no Kata and Koshiki no Kata on the last day.

On the second day Fukuda Sensei came to Kime no Kata Practice. Fukuda Sensei
was kind enough to give us Ju no Kata instructions on Sunday morning. Fukuda
Sensei's Ju no Kata Instructions were very technical. Mr. Utsugi and Mr. Enoki's
teachings were excellent and students were able to ask questions. These instructors
gave informative demonstrations. Participants expressed that they will practice
more katas when they go back to their dojos.

All three days on the mat were very enjoyable. For the excellent clinic they
gave us during the practice, we would like to express sincere appreciation to
Utsugi Sensei , Enoki Sensei and Fukuda Sensei. The Kata participants were:
Kenji Osugi, Einhard Schmidt, R.J. Cantwell, Brad Burrows, John Hendricks, Wiley
Dobbs, Rocky Lima, Frances Glaze, Ryan O'Connor, Maximo Suriel, Brett Layton,
Sebastiaan Inthout, Eva McCatty, Russell Ogata, leslie Minot, Fran Christie,
Teri Schweitzer, Vicki Trent, Sara Jobin. Eiko Shepherd. The USJF Kata Instructor
Certification Test Results Einhard Schmidt: Nage no Kata Class (B) Katame no
Kata Class (B) Brett Layton: Nage no Kata Class (C) Katame no Kata Class (C)

Congratulation to Mr. Schmidt, Mr. Layton and Mr. Suriel !

Konan Yudanshakai Koshiki No Kata Clinic Report

By Anthony Owed

The Koshiki No Kata workshop on Sunday, August 24, 2003 was a very successful
endeavor. There were a total of 10 people in attendance. The participants represented
both Ohio and Michigan.

The workshop began with a demonstration of Koshiki No Kata, performed by Al
Panackia and Mark Pasquinelly. Mark and Al were the bronze medalists in Koshiki
No Kata at the 2003 world masters championships. It appears that their time
spent in Japan was well worth the effort and we all benefited by what they have
learned. Mark and Al explained each technique one at a time and everyone in
the workshop practiced. Each pair received individual instruction from Tony
Owed, Frances Glaze, Al, and Mark. We went through the entire kata in this manner
within a 5 hour time frame.

The workshop was enjoyed by all. Everyone is excited for the next Koshiki No
Kata clinic.

Referee Clinic Report

Calvin Terada, Chair, Referee Committee

May 10, 2003

On May 10, 2003, the Northwest Judo Yudanshakai (NWJY) co-hosted with Washington
State Judo, Inc. a referee clinic featuring Sensei George Uchida, IJF-A, and
Sensei Joon Chi, IJF-A, Referee Chairman, USJF. The referee clinic took place
following the Pacific Northwest High School Championships that were held at
Kentwood High School in Kent, Washington.

There were a total of 26 participants that attended the referee clinic, of
which there was a mixture of referees, coaches, players, and instructors. The
referee clinic began with Sensei Chi introducing the participants to the new
International Judo Federation (IJF) rules that were passed by the IJF Referee
Commission at the World Junior Championships in Korea. Sensei Chi talked about
the following topics:

1. Application of Kawazugake

2. Confirmed the use of the Golden Score system

3. Consolidation of Penalties into two groups

4. Bowing

5. Medical Procedures (including unseen injury rule)

Of the five topics covered, Sensei Chi emphasized the changes that were occurring
with the medical procedures, including the unseen injury rule, since many international
events are currently implementing this rule. Sensei provided the group some
insight on how the new rules are being implemented in the various Continental
Unions.

After much discussion regarding the application of the new rules, Sensei Uchida
gave a short lecture regarding the history of the rules of judo and the role
of a referee. Being the first IJF-A referee in the United States, Sensei Uchida
shared many stories with the group regarding his past experiences. Following
Sensei's talk, everyone was instructed to change into their judo-gis for mat-side
demonstrations and a mock shiai.

On the mat, the clinic changed gears and began with a set of questions that
were posed by the participants. Questions and situations were posed to both
Sensei Chi and Sensei Uchida and they proceeded to provide methods and answers
on how to interpret various situations. Many of the participants found this
part of the session to be extremely helpful since it is a rare treat to have
two very knowledgeable Senseis provide their insight on how to interpret situations
from both the referee's and coach's perspectives.

Once the question/answer session ended, the clinic concluded with everyone
participating in a mock shiai. As an added twist to the shiai, the referees
served as the competitors, while the players and coaches found themselves in
the position of the referees. All had a wonderful time trying to help those
who have never refereed, as well as poke fun at seeing the referees in action.

Overall, all 26 participants found that the referee clinic was very helpful
and enjoyable. With the mix of coaches, players, and referees attending this
clinic, all gained an added perspective and appreciation for each other's role
in the judo world.

We would like to thank Sensei Uchida and Sensei Chi for taking time out of
their busy schedules to assist us in increasing the level of knowledge regarding
the rules of judo, boosting the level of judo in our area, and giving the referees
inspiration and confidence to reach for higher goals.
