MOJ attends 2019 Tokai University's Japan Study Abroad Program 5/24 - 6/12

Metro Orlando Judo & Gator Judo teamed up to attend the 2019 Study Abroad Japan program sponsored by Tokai University. Sensei Doug Clark, who organized the trip, and Daniel Diaz of Gator Judo participated in the program. The program included daily practice at Tokai's Matsumae Judo Juku, practice Sessions at Tokai University Takanawadai High School Judo Club, Tokai University Gyosei High School in Osaka, and Tokai University Seisho High School in Kumamoto, lectures on the history and philosophy of Judo and the Tokai Educational System, visits to the Kodokan and other historic Judo sites, and a tour of major attractions in Tokyo and surrounding areas. The Tokai University Instructors and students were incredible, both in Judo technique and in Judo spirit. You couldn't ask for a better experience...It was an awesome trip!!!  Sensei Clark will be organizing a group for next year's program starting in January 2020, so please contact him for more information.
