“Tsuyoko, Yasashiku, Utsukushiku” – Keiko Fukuda Sensei (9th dan)
Be Strong, Gentle and Beautiful in Mind, Body and Spirit is Sensei’s motto. At Joshi Judo Camp, participants get instruction and practice to develop as women judoka. It is a great weekend to refocus back on the principles of judo and of being a woman.
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding the 2015 Joshi Camp Friday, July 24 – Sunday, July 26 in Chicago, IL. The details are being finalized, look for more information soon. Until then save the date.
