To the judo family

I have just received the news that John Anderson passed away at about 6 AM Eastern time this morning.

John was a founder of Shufu Yudanshakai, and a true sensei to many of us for decades. I will transmit additional information about further arrangements as I receive them from his family.

Sanix 2016 -- Tatevos Manucharyan

-

I had the privilege of traveling with 15 judokas from across the United States to Japan to participate in the Sanix Judo Camp, and compete in Sanix Judo Tournament 2016. The opportunity to accompany these students to this competition was a very memorable experience. I accompanied 2 judokas, Narek Manucharyan, and Isaiah Thor from Fresno Judo Club, and met the rest of them in Japan. All 15 judokas represented Team USA.
